He followed the announcement up with a note that he would be revealing more casting news for the season in the coming days, so keep your eyes peeled.
In Hill House, Thomas played young Hugh Crain, the patriarch of the Crain family and house-flipper extraordinaire who relocated the Crains to Hill House. The actor is also known for playing Elliott in ET: The Extra-Terrestrial and Father Tom Hogan in Ouija: Origin Of Evil
The Haunting Of Bly Manor will be based on Henry James’ novel The Turn Of The Screw.
Thomas joins a cast made up of his Hill House on-screen son Oliver Jackson-Cohen as a “charming fellow” named Peter, as well as his on-screen daughter Victoria Pedretti as a governess named Dani, “who takes care of two very unusual children.” Thomas’s character in Bly Manor is currently being kept under wraps.
