If you're looking for some holiday joy in your life, Netflix's latest series, Dash & Lily, shows us all the magic of NYC during Christmastime as the two star characters head out on a crazy scavenger hunt to find each other. Along the way, we also get to meet their families, friends, and even a few surprising people here and there who help them out as they try to figure out the real person on the other side of their special dare notebook. Whether you just finished binging the series or you're about to finally start, you're definitely going to be obsessed with the cast and their characters.

Here are the cast and characters of Netflix's Dash & Lily.

"Dasha is a fairly like rich and cynical kind of guy who doesn't like Christmas. It's a good contrast to Lily's character who does. His family seems to have abandoned him on Christmas and he is looking for a connection," Dash revealed to Seventeen.

Austin Abrams is known for his roles as teenage Kate's boyfriend, Marc, in This is Us and Ethan Lewis on Euphoria.

Midori Francis as Lily

"Lily is a bubbly, optimistic, hopeful, loving, young woman who loves Christmas and loves all that it means, which is primarily family and togetherness," Midori told Seventeen. "Lily likes everyone to be together and happy, which is a hard goal. Her experience in this show is like what happens when that falls away? Or what happens when you're not happy? Like, am I still Lily?"

Midori is mostly known for her work in theater including the hit play The Wolves.

Dante Brown as Boomer

"Boomer is Dash's best friend or his wingman and he is the most loyal one you can have. He's just an adventure guy and his energy is always through the roof. He's always trying to make sure everything is good and that everybody is having the best time. I feel like he gives off mad Libra energy. Like, he really does. He's just such a just incredible character to me," Dante revealed.

Dante previously starred as Roger "RJ" Murtaugh Jr. in the series Lethal Weapon and recently appeared as Darrell in the hit horror film Ma.

Troy Iwata as Langston

"Langston is Lily's older brother and and he's a hopelessly romantic, very immature, and sort of plays matchmaker role. He is the one who comes up with the idea for this book of dares for Lily because she wants to find someone for the holidays. He says, 'I know exactly how to do this. Clearly, you must make a book of truth or dares and put it in a bookstore. That's the only way.' Langston's a super fun character to play and I think he's kind of his little sister's advisor. But he only does that so that he can ignore his own issues, which we'll learn about later," Troy told Seventeen.

Broadway fans will certainly recognize Troy as part of the original cast of Be More Chill.
