Gugu Mbatha-Raw is back in the thrill ride game in the Apple TV+ series, Surface. The Loki star plays the leading protagonist Sophie, who has lost her memories after an attempted suicide. As she attempts to recall her past and how everything drove her to commit suicide, she realizes that there’s something else to her suicide than what she knows and what others have been telling her.
Surface is created by Veronica West and helmed by Sam Miller. Both West and Miller serve as executive producers, as does Mbatha-Raw, alongside Lauren Neustadter and Reese Witherspoon. Apart from Mbatha-Raw, the highly-anticipated series also features Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Bly Manor), Stephan James (Homecoming), and Ari Graynor (I’m Dying Up Here) in major roles.
