‘Under the Bridge’ Cast and Character Guide

Riley Keough stars in “Under the Bridge” as journalist Rebecca Godfrey, who wrote the book the true crime Hulu series is based on.

In the eight-part drama, Lily Gladstone plays police officer Cam Bentland, a “largely fictional” character who is among the first to realize there’s more to the disappearance of 14-year-old Reena Virk (Vritika Gupta) than just a runaway teen.

Here’s who plays who in the cast and where you might have seen them before:

The “Daisy Jones & the Six” star was handpicked by the late real-life Rebecca Godfrey to play her. In the series, Rebecca has returned to Victoria, BC to work on a book about the town’s teenage girls, not realizing that she’s about to stumble across the biggest, most disturbing story to come out of the Canadian town.

The “Killers of the Flower Moon” Oscar nominee was also chosen by Godfrey to play the character of the Victoria cop who investigates Reena’s disappearance. Showrunner Quin Shephard told TheWrap, “Her friend had worked on ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ and was like, ‘There’s this actress you have to see,’ and I don’t think we could have ended up with a better actress.”

The character, who used to be close to Rebecca, is, per Shephard, “largely fictional” and an amalgamation of real-life figures in the case. Cam hopes her career lets her go somewhere more important than Victoria, something her father (Matt Craven) doesn’t understand.
