She played Harry Potter‘s Hermione Granger in London and on Broadway, and now Noma Dumezweni has been tapped for a series regular role in HBO Max/Paramount TV’s Made For Love, opposite Ray Romano in the half-hour series adaptation of Alissa Nutting’s dark, absurd and cynically poignant novel of divorce and revenge.
Dumezweni will play the role of ‘Fiffany,’ described as a lovestruck marine biologist who supplies the brains behind the Made For Love technology. She joins the previously cast Romano and Christin Milioti. Patrick Somerville (Netflix’s Maniac) is the showrunner for Made for Love.
