List of the characters in Mare of Easttown

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature

The extraordinary characters and performances make Mare of Easttown, on Disney+ Hotstar Premium, an even more gripping watch.

We all remember Kate Winslet and her iconic character Rose in the classic movie Titanic, but could you ever have imagined the stunning actress portraying the role of a detective? Well, the all new crime thriller series Mare of Easttown on Disney+ Hotstar Premium features the international star in an all new avatar as she essays the role of Mare Sheehan, a divorced mother who is investigating a local murder even as her life crumbles around her. The series explores the dark side of a close community and provides an authentic examination of how family and past tragedies can define our present. Ahead of the season finale this 31st May on Disney+ Hotstar Premium, here’s a list of characters that make Mare of Easttown an engrossing story and a must watch.

Mare Sheehan (Kate Winslet)

Kate Winslet portrays the role of Mare, a cop and a local sports hero, who isn’t a people’s person, yet cares deeply for her friends, family and even neighbours. Famous in town by a name she despises aka Miss Lady Hawk, Mare finds herself in the middle of an investigation that involves people she knows. At the same time, she is also left battling with multiple personal issues.


Lori Ross (Julianne Nicholson)

Julianne Nicholson brings to life the character of Lori, who has been Mare’s best friend since they were four. Never losing faith in her friend, Lori understands Mare but loves and accepts her exactly as she is. Lori and Mare are an epitome of true friendship, and always look out for each other.


Helen (Jean Smart)

Helen, Mare’s mother played by Jean Smart, is opinionated and stubborn, but wants the best for her family. The mother and daughter duo may not get along most of the time, but Helen is an important part of Mare’s life who looks out for her, and her grandson.


Siobhan Sheehan (Angourie Rice)

Angourie Rice has done great justice to her character Siobhan Sheehan, daughter of the ex-couple Mare and Frank, who is a lovely and brilliant young woman as well rebellious and strong-headed in nature. A significant witness in the case her mother is investigating, Siobhan is still reeling in the pain of her brother’s death.


Detective Colin Zabel (Evan Peters)

The versatile Evan Peters is as brilliant as ever, as he portrays the role of County Detective Colin Zabel. A complete opposite of his fellow detective Mare Sheehan, Zabel is a youngster with a credible history of solving cases. Even though Mare isn’t pleased with Zabel joining the case, she eventually comes around and even discovers that there is more to his story than most people know.


Richard Ryan (Guy Pearce)

Guy Pearce essays the role of Richard Ryan, an author and professor who is Mare’s love interest in the series. New to the town, Richard falls head over heels for Miss Lady Hawk after meeting her in a bar, and is adamant on taking her out too. But will Mare reciprocate that interest, or will she leave Richard hanging? Find out in Mare of Easttown only on Disney+ Hotstar Premium.


Erin McMenamin (Cailee Spaeny)

Erin McMenamin, portrayed brilliantly by Cailee Spaeny, is a teenage mother and also the victim in the case that Mare Sheehan is investigating. Erin’s death opens up a Pandora's box of secrets about her son, relationships, and past, as hidden truths that no one could have expected to come to the fore.


Frank Sheehan (David Denman)

David Denman brings to life the character of Frank, Mare’s ex-husband who is also her next door neighbour. News of his second marriage isn’t music to Mare’s ears, and discovering secrets about him after the murder of Erin, adds to her disdain for him. The saying, ‘you can’t judge a book by its cover’, is a pretty appropriate description of Frank who has more to him than he lets on.
