LOS ANGELES: Actors Haley Lu Richardson and Tom Hollander have joined the cast for the second installment of HBO series “The White Lotus”.

Richardson, known for films such as “Split”, “Columbus” and “The Edge of Seventeen”, and Hollander, who won a BAFTA award for best supporting actor for BBC series “The Night Manager”, boarded the cast for season two along with F Murray Abraham and Adam DiMarco, reported Variety.

Created, written and directed by Mike White, the satirical comedy-drama television series follows the lives of the staff and guests at the White Lotus, a tropical resort in Hawaii.

The second season, which will be once again written and directed by White, will leave Hawaii behind for a new location and is expected to follow a different group of vacationers at another White Lotus property.
