Josh Stewart, Floriana Lima, and Giorgia Wigham join Marvel’s The Punisher

Marvel Television and Netflix have announced the addition of Josh Stewart (Insidious: The Last Key, Shooter), Floriana Lima (Lethal Weapon, The Family), and Giorgia Whigham (Scream, Sierra Burgess is a Loser) to the cast of the second season of Marvel’s The Punisher.

Stewart has been cast as John Pilgrim, a man whose calm exterior belies a ruthless interior. Despite leaving behind a life of violence, circumstances will force him to use his old skills and bring him into Frank Castle’s world.

Lima will play the role of ‘Krista Dumont,’ a smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans. Whigham has been locked to play ‘Amy Bendix,’ a street-smart grifter with a mysterious past. Of the three characters cast, Amy Bendix is the only one who has appeared in The Punisher series comic books. There isn’t much about the Bendix in the comic book series, except for her appearance.

“Josh, Floriana and Giorgia are all remarkable talents and we can’t wait for the audience to see what we have in store for them in the second season of Marvel’s The Punisher,” said Jeph Loeb, executive producer and head of Marvel Television.

“We are incredibly excited to have Josh, Floriana and Giorgia joining the cast of Marvel’s The Punisher and seeing them bring their talents to the next chapter in the Frank Castle story,” added Steve Lightfoot, showrunner and executive producer.

Stewart, Lima, and Whigham will join cast members Jon Bernthal as ‘Frank Castle,’ Ben Barnes as ‘Billy Russo,’ Amber Rose Revah as ‘Dinah Madani,’ and Jason R. Moore as ‘Curtis Hoyle.’ The second season will be executive produced by Steve Lightfoot, along with Loeb and Jim Chory.

The entire first season of Marvel’s The Punisher is available to watch on Netflix.
