Meet the full cast of The Stranger on Netflix | MarkMeets

The Stranger stars Joel Edgerton and Sean Harris and an impressive supporting cast

The crime thriller is loosely based on real events, telling the story of an unlikely friendship that forms between an undercover cop and a murder suspect as the former looks to gain the latter’s trust.

The Stranger pivots on the relationship between Henry, the suspect, and Edgerton’s Mark, the undercover cop tasked with bringing the alleged pedophile/murderer into the fold of an entirely fictional band of crims, gradually building trust so as to be able, one day, to extract a confession.

“You have to weigh the balance of the closeness you can form with him against your own vulnerability,” Mark’s boss (Matthew Sunderland) cautions him – but behind the all-black speed-dealers that the in-character Mark sports is a thousand-yard stare that suggests he’s waded in too deep already
