Weekly Wrap-Up

Hi crew! Overall, a pretty quiet week in the Our Flag Means Death fandom – except for confirmation of a cast member! Let’s get into it!

July 23

San Diego Comic Con had an OFMD meetup on a pirate boat!

July 26

We had another casting update for S2, and this one was a pretty big reveal!

⚠️ S2 Spoilers ⚠️

Thanks to our insider, the fandom discovered that Aotearoa New Zealand star Rachel House will be in S2 – playing infamous pirate Mary Read! We’re not sure how big of a role this character will be, because they weren’t one of the one tagged on David Jenkins’ wrap party post, but it’s still very interesting! Mary is famous for her connections with pirates “Calico Jack” Rackham and Anne Bonny, which might mean we also see the latter in S2!

July 28

David Jenkins was yelling about cats again…

July 28

Dominic Burgess (Jeffrey Fettering) and others striking were happy to receive snacks from OFMD fans!

July 29

Vico hosted their “Thirst & Parry” class teaching sword fighting with Be Momentus! They noted beforehand that they are a striking actor, and so we have no new OFMD info or stories, as that is considered “struck work” right now.
