Many Sense8 cast members reunited with director Lana Wachowski for 2021's The Matrix Resurrections, and here's every actor the two projects share.

Here's every Sense8 cast member who reunited with Lana Wachowski for The Matrix Resurrections. The original Matrix had a major impact on blockbuster cinema, from its existential themes to its incredible action. The movie was also one of the first to use the internet as part of its marketing campaign, and after its success, the Wachowski siblings soon set to work on two sequels. Anticipation could hardly have been higher for 2003's The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions, not to mention its many tie-ins like the Enter The Matrix video game and anime anthology The Animatrix.


As history has recorded, while the sequels were both hits, they proved extremely disappointing to many viewers. While both The Matrix sequels featured some amazing setpieces, their muddled storylines, tedious philosophical dialogue and Revolutions' anti-climatic ending put a dent in the legacy of the series. Still, hopes were high for 2021's The Matrix Resurrections, where Lana Wachowski returned as director and co-writer. While the film had its admirers, it proved to be a surprise box-office failure, which has been attributed to its simultaneous release in theaters and HBO Max in addition to mixed reviews.

In the aftermath of The Matrix Resurrection's failure, the future of the series is unknown. Before signing on for The Matrix Resurrections, Lana Wachowski mulled retiring from the business following the end of her Netflix series Sense8. This sci-fi saga revolved around 8 strangers from completely different backgrounds and countries who become psychically connected, allowing them to share everything from skills to emotions. The high cost of producing Sense8 led to its cancelation - though Netflix at least gave it a proper finale - but many Sense8 cast members returned for Wachowskis' The Matrix Resurrections.

Every Sense8 Cast Member In The Matrix Resurrections

Many Sense8 actors make up the crew of Bug's (Jessica Henwick) ship the Mnemosyne, with Toby Onwumere playing "operator" Sequoia. Onwumere - who replaced Ami Ameen as Capheus during the show's second season - is joined by other Sense8 cast members on the Mnemosyne, including Eréndira Ibarra and Brian J. Smith as Lexy and Berg respectively in The Matrix Resurrections. General Niobe's head of security Sheperd is played by Max Riemelt, who previously played Sense8's Wolfgang, while Mumbi Maina plays Ellster.

Maximilian Mauff is another Sense8 cast member who jumped on for The Matrix Resurrections. After playing Felix in the latter project, he played Synthient Quillion in the sci-fi sequel. Rounding out the returnees is Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who) as Astra and Purab Kohli as Zen - two developers trying to help Keanu Reeves' Thomas Anderson develop a Matrix video game sequel - while Michael X. Sommers appears as Skroce.
