Ray Stevenson joins STARZ Black Sails

News broke earlier this week from Starz that actor Ray Stevenson will be joining the cast of Black Sails. Hot off of the heels of the second season finale last night (28th March), Starz revealed that Stevenson will be joining the cast in the third season as the iconic pirate Blackbeard.

Blackbeard, also known as Edward Teach, joins Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and his crew twenty years prior to the literary classic Treasure Island from Robert Louis Stevenson.

Ray Stevenson will be known to many as Titus Pollo in the HBO/BBC drama ROME. More recently he appeared in the seventh season of Dexter as the Ukrainian mobster Isaak Sirko. He’s also fixed in the latest young adult series of films from author Veronica Roth: The Divergent Trilogy. Ray has starred in the first two instalments of the trilogy as the character Marcus Eaton – the Leader of Abnegation.
