One of the greatest tragedies of the 2007 The Golden Compass movie (apart from being, you know, not very good) was that its failure prevented us from ever meeting Will Parry, the protagonist of the second novel of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, The Subtle Knife. In future movies, Will, the story’s co-protagonist, would have come into contact with Lyra, the feisty and fierce girl adventurer. Lyra is being played by Dafne Keen in the upcoming BBC-HBO limited series His Dark Materials, and with that adaptation set to venture beyond the events of the Golden Compass, we finally get to meet the strong-willed boy with a sharp wit and an even sharper weapon. Find out about the newcomer joining the His Dark Materials cast as Will Parry below.
