Remember last year when rumours that a major pop act was being eyed for a role in The White Lotus led many to incorrectly believe that Harry Styles would be checking in to TV’s most famous hotel chain?
Well, it seems we finally know the real story.
On Monday, Variety reported that Blackpink singer Lisa would be joining The White Lotus for its much-anticipated third series, which is due to begin filming in Thailand later this month.
This was later confirmed to be true by the show’s official Instagram page, which also revealed two more additions to the cast, The Leftovers actor Scott Glenn and Bulgarian star Julian Kostov.
The K-pop singer and her new co-stars won’t be the only recognisable faces when The White Lotus finally reopens its doors, though.
Despite her character’s fate in season two, Jennifer Coolidge has made no secret of her hopes to return in some capacity, while Natasha Rothwell (who previously played much-loved spa manager Belinda) will be back in action for the new batch of episodes.
Serbian-Russian actor Miloš Biković was previously cast in the new season, but was later dropped from the show after he was accused of supporting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The first two seasons of The White Lotus are available to stream on Now.
