Umbrella Academy Season 3: Starring the Sparrow Academy
Cornwell will introduce Marcus, also known as Sparrow №1, who is described as “charming, carved and colossal” as well as “honest, virtuous and demanding.” According to Netflix, it will play an important role in the dynamics of the family, as it will ultimately help keep everyone together. “Graceful but deadly, calculated but compassionate, he’s as smart as he is strong,” says the streamer. “Marcus is disciplined, rational and controlling. He loses confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice.”
Min will return as Ben, Sparrow # 2 in Season 3, but this is “not the sweet Ben we know and love.” In his alternative role, Ben is said to be “Machiavelli’s tactician wrapped in the handsome body of a boy with a rattlesnake.” He is described as “vicious, pragmatic and over-vigilant” because he focuses on gaining his status as a leader, regardless of cost.
Oldford will play Fei, Sparrow No. 3, a character who “sees the world in a special way” and “falls like a misanthrope who would rather be alone than spend a second with you,” however, under this hard appearance, Faye wants a friend. Instead of interacting with friends, she spends most of her time as “the smartest person in the room.” Netflix says it is a seductive individual who is “ready to do things” and “will not stop until the job is done.”Alfonso of Epstein is Sparrow No. 4, a man whose face and body are marked by “countless visual reminders of his battles” from the years of fighting crime. Externally he may be bruised, but internally he is “armed with a large and biting sense of humor.” According to the streamer, “the only thing he likes better than verbally beating someone stupid enough to get in his face is a good pizza and six packs of beer.”
Rodriguez will play Sloan, Sparrow 5, “a romantic and dreamer who feels a higher cosmic calling, leaving her eager to see the world and live life beyond her upbringing.” Still, her family responsibilities keep her attached to the Academy, as does her fear of crossing the family line. “But Sloane has plans,” Netflix reveals. “And one day she may be brave enough to act on them.”
David’s Jayme, also known as Sparrow No. 6 is described as “a loner hidden under a hood”, although she has a friend in Alphonso with whom she likes to spend her time when she is not busy giving out “fearful roars. . “Obviously, if you see him, you’d like to ‘run across the street to avoid what’s next.’
Finally, an existential fear-provoking cube of psychronium will join a colorful crew like Sparrow No. 7. “Christopher is a telekinetic cube of unknown origin,” for Netflix. “He can turn the room cold and cause paralyzing fear. He acts as an advised oracle to the sparrows, giving incredible advice and serving as a family mediator. Trusted, loyal and treated by the sparrows like any other brother, Christopher is a force with which we have to comply. “Production of The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will begin in Toronto next month.
