Irish actor Patrick Gibson, the breakout star of Netflix’s epic mystery The OA, has been cast in teen sci-fi project The Darkest Minds, Fox’s adaptation of Alexandra Bracken’s YA trilogy.
Gibson will play the handsome and slightly narcissistic Clancy Gray, the president’s son and poster boy for rehabilitation whose portrait is displayed all over the camp. He possesses a certain power that can manipulate people’s minds and he uses that to convince those around him that he’s been healed.
Gibson broke out on the international scene with his role in Netflix’s The OA, the straight-to-series drama that reunited Sundance veterans Brit Marling and director Zal Batmanglij. (…) He also has a role in Showtime and Sky Atlantic’s six-episode series Guerilla from John Ridley and Idris Elba.
