The Sandman, written by Neil Gaiman, perhaps is the most widely loved comic book series ever. Throughout the years, there have been a few failed endeavors at adapting it on the screens, until Netflix declared in 2019 that they would be the ones courageous enough to carry the innovative and long waited series to the little screens. While this sounds astounding, numerous fans cannot resist the urge to be a little fearful about how comparable the show will be to the original material.

The characters

Abel is an unmistakable character in the comic book series. He lives in the House of Secrets, which is in the Dreaming. His sibling, Cain (Sanjeev Bhaskar) lives in the House of Mysteries nearby. The two are secured a perpetual pattern of Cain slaughtering Abel again and again in many ways.

Regarding Metro, the actor clarified how he gets in the character for the job. “I’m playing [Abel] quite true to what he was, reading some the comics and listening to the audio books, that kind of stuff. Playing it quite sweet but giving my interpretation and just trying to play him as real as possible.” Metro continued: “Obviously you go into the fantasy world and I’m already quite a big character, so I didn’t want to do too much with him. So I’m trying to play him as real and sweet as possible.”

He additionally was listening to the smash hit Sandman audiobook that was delivered to th listeners a year ago, where Abel was voiced by Kerry Shale.

Chaudhry is an accomplished comedian, who is a solid match since Cain and Abel give a ton of lighthearted elements all through the series.

I am certain everybody can hardly wait to see these two together! It also helps that Chaudhry looks astonishingly like the Abel character as drawn in the comic books:
