Scenes From A Marriage Cast Guide: Where You Recognize The Actors From

HBO Max’s Scenes From A Marriage, adapted from Ingmar Bergman’s 1973 Swedish classic of the same name, stars Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac as a married couple on the verge of divorce. Written, directed, and executive produced by Hagai Levi (In Treatment, Our Boys, The Affair), the show examines many of the same themes around love, monogamy, marriage, and divorce as the original but from a contemporary perspective.

The series is part of the lineup of new movies and TV shows to release on HBO Max in September 2021, and headliners Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac will no doubt draw viewers to Scenes of a Marriage. These two have appeared in iconic movie roles throughout the 2000s, and they are arguably two of Hollywood’s biggest leading stars at the moment. But the cast also includes some other familiar faces in supporting roles.

While Chastain and Isaac have played a married couple before — in the 2014 crime drama A Most Violent YearScenes From A Marriage is the first time audiences will get to see them play one on the small screen — and the first time they’ll be seeing Chastain on television since she started her career in the early 2000s. Chances are viewers will also recognize the faces of several supporting cast members from other popular TV shows. Here’s a line-up of the Scenes From A Marriage cast, who they’re playing in the HBO Max original limited series, and where you’ve seen the actors before.

Movie critics and fans first started to really take notice of the talented Jessica Chastain in 2011, when she starred in her breakout role as Mrs O’Brien in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, and, a year later, she earned an Academy-Award nomination for her role as CIA operative Maya in Zero Dark Thirty. Audiences will also recognize Chastain from appearing in both blockbuster sci-fi movies like Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and The Martian as well as indie passion projects like Ava and Woman Walks Ahead. Chastain is known for choosing roles that allow her to play strong female characters, like in Miss Sloane and Molly’s Game — and as the titular character in the forthcoming 2021 biopic, The Eyes of Tammy Faye. In Scenes From a Marriage, Chastain continues that trend as Mira, a confident and successful tech executive who is unhappy in her marriage to Jonathan (Oscar Isaac).

Oscar Isaac gained recognition for his role as the titular character in the critically-acclaimed, Inside Llewyn Davis followed by Ex Machina in 2014. Since then, Issac has appeared in Blockbusters such as the Star Wars sequel trilogy and X-Men: Apocalypse — and Hollywood can’t seem to get enough of the actor. In addition to Scenes From A Marriage, Isaac’s latest feature, The Card Counter released in September 2021. Fans will continue to see a lot more of him, too, as Isaac is set to star in several forthcoming features including Dune, Metal Gear Solid, and Moon Knight. In Scenes From A Marriage, Isaac portrays Jonathan, an academic and philosophy professor who desperately tries to make his marriage with Mira (Jessica Chastain) work, for better or worse.

In Scenes From A marriage, Lily Jane stars as Mira and Jonathan’s young daughter who is caught between her parents' battle that will either save or destroy their marriage. Jane made her acting debut in a short film in 2020. So far in 2021, she also starred in the TV movie Sand Dollar Cove, and she has several other series and films currently in production, so audiences can expect to see more of the budding young actor in the future.
