THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY SEASON 3 CAST AND NEW CHARACTERS
By now we all know that there is a whole new cast of characters coming to The Umbrella Academy in Season 3.
Aside from the Umbrella's, we also have the Sparrows. But who are they and who plays them?
Justin Cornwell as Marcus Hargreeves / Sparrow Number One
Justin H. Min as Ben Hargreeves / Sparrow Number Two
Britne Oldford as Fei Hargreeves / Sparrow Number Three
Jake Epstein as Alphonso Hargreeves / Sparrow Number Four
Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane Hargreeves / Sparrow Number Five
Cazzie David as Jayme Hargreeves / Sparrow Number Six
If you missed it, Sparrow Number Two is Ben Hargreeves!! Played by Juston H. Min, this is an alternate version of Ben who, like his Umbrella counterpart, was adopted by Reginald alongside five other children.
However, this Ben is still alive in 2019, is a member of the Sparrow Academy and has no memory of what the Umbrella Academy is. Poor Klaus!
With another slight character change, in The Umbrella Academy season 3 Vanya comes out and identifies as a transgender man renamed Viktor, corresponding to Elliot Page's real life transition.
