Meet The Cast Of Characters In Amazon’s The Underground Railroad
Slight spoilers are ahead. Like the detailed routes throughout the actual Underground Railroad, the cast of characters involved in the journey depicted in the new Amazon Prime series are plentiful. The Underground Railroad's visually captivating story of runaway slave Cora Randall spans a plethora of states — from Georgia to North Carolina to Indiana — over the course of months, with each new town bringing people who mean to both help and harm her into her proximity.
The Underground Railroad is, at its core, not just Cora’s story. Viewers are taken on a journey through multiple characters’ origins, as well as their hopes for the future. With slaves, slave catchers, freeborn men and women and abolitionists alike given their chance to tell their story over the course of 10 episodes, viewers walk away from the series more knowledgeable about what led each character to become involved in the system known as the U.S. slave trade. For some, it’s hatred. For many others, it’s a fact of life they must live with. Like the locomotives that give the titular railroad its name being underground, the system connects our characters in a way they can’t always see, for better and for worse.
These are the characters who make up The Underground Railroad and how they’re involved in Cora’s epic journey.

And, after a year of being repeatedly told that actions we once wouldn’t have second guessed are now a threat to public health, it’s hard to shake the constant feeling that you’re doing something wrong. Whether you’re worried you’re going out too much
David Cameron loves employing women because they work harder, his wife Samantha has said. Mrs Cameron, 50, said she too believes women are sometimes “better at our jobs than men,” but are not so good at having the “ego” to go with it. Speaking to the Telegraph’s Claire Cohen on her Imposters podcast, which you can listen to using the audio player below, the businesswoman and wife of the former Conservative prime minister said: “My husband always says he loves employing women because they work ha
Like so many devotees, Pamela, now 62, stumbled into yoga almost by accident. She was an idealistic 20-year-old in 1979 when she attended a fasting weekend near her home in London, run by the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres, which has 60 outlets across 35 countries. A particularly spiritual expression of the ancient practice, it was founded by Hindu guru Sivananda, who is said to have wandered the length of India with no possessions in the early 20th century. Now, the institution is embroiled in
