Swarm cast: Who is in the Donald Glover series?


Horror thriller Swarm focuses on the dynamic between celebrities and their obsessed fanbase, like Beyoncé’s Bey Hive, Taylor Swift’s Swifties and Justin Beiber’s Beliebers. The Amazon Prime Video series will follow the story of Dre (played by Dominique Fishback), who becomes dangerously fixated on her favourite pop star. Express.co.uk has all there is to know about the cast of Swarm.

Who is in the cast of Swarm?

Dre – Dominique Fishback

Dre grew up as a huge fan of her pop idol Ni’jah, along with her sister Marissa who was equally enthralled by her music.

When Marissa is no longer as interested in the artist, the fandom isolates Dre who remains committed to Ni’jah and starts to meet other possible fans who recognise her to be “part of the swarm”.

She then embarks on a whirlwind and violent road trip with people who she classes as friends in the hope of meeting her icon.

Actress Dominique Fishback is best known for playing Billie Rowan in Show Me a Hero and Darlene on The Deuce.

She was also nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her part as Deborah Johnson in Judas and the Black Messiah.

Marissa – Chloe Bailey

Marissa is Dre’s sister, who she had a very close relationship with growing up, thanks to their shared love of music.

While she starts to get on with her own life, Marissa remains worried about her sister’s welfare as it’s clear she is on the verge of a breakdown.
