Falling Water's Gale Anne Hurd Shares the Inside Story on Casting (Hint: The Eyes Have It)

Falling Water - Will Yun Lee, Lizzie Brochere, David Ajala

As with any dramatic series, casting your leads is one of the most important pieces of the puzzle and so we asked executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) to share some of the backstory of finding Falling Water's compelling main actors. Interestingly, they all came to the project through very different avenues (including a significant re-write to accommodate one of the actors), but there's one thing all three of them have in common.


Burton played by David Ajala

Logical, meticulous, and discreet; ex-British SAS officer Burton Mann performs well as a “fixer” for multinational investment firm, Hull-Bedford. When he isn’t making problems disappear, he’s rendezvousing with his mysterious lover, the nameless Woman In Red.

But Burton’s world is turned upside down when his Woman In Red suddenly disappears without a trace. On top of that, when his firm begins brokering a new deal (led by the conniving Woody Hammond), Burton can’t help but sense there’s more to the new arrangement than he was being told.
