Claes Bang Joins the Season Five Cast of THE AFFAIR
Claes Bang has joined the fifth season cast of "The Affair," according to Variety.
Bang will play Sasha Mann, described as a charismatic, A-list movie star who will play an influential role in both Helen (Maura Tierney) and Noah's (Dominic West) lives in Season 5. As Helen's love interest this year, Sasha's minimalistic lifestyle and objectivist way of thinking will influence how she lives her own life in the wake of a personal loss.
Bang broke out in the Ruben Östlund film "The Square," in which he co-starred with West. The film won the Palme d'Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival as well as six European Film Awards, including best actor for Claes. It was also nominated for the Academy Award and the Golden Globe Award for best foreign language film.
Bang can be seen next in "The Girl in the Spider's Web," and he recently filmed "The Bay of Silence" and "Burnt Orange Heresy."
