  • Sarah Niles is joining AFC Richmond for season two of Ted Lasso.
  • The actress will be playing the team’s sports psychologist.

The hit Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso is getting a new cast member for its second season.

As reported by Deadline, Sarah Niles, known for her roles in I May Destroy You and Rocks, will join the series in a recurring role as Sharon, a sports psychologist who has been hired to assist the UFC Richmond team. Niles also had a small role in Trying, which also debuted on Apple TV+ last year.

Niles recently wrapped the upcoming ITV limited series Viewpoint for creators Harry Bradbeer and Ed Whitmore. On stage, Niles also recently led the heartbreaking retelling of Three Sisters set amidst Nigeria’s civil war at the National Theatre directed by Nadia Fall. She can currently be seen in the limited series I May Destroy You, as well as in theaters in Rocks, directed by Sarah Gavron. She also appears in Trying for Apple TV+, among other credits. Niles is repped by Gavin Denton-Jones at Denton Brierley; Danielle Robinson at Alan Siegel Entertainment; and Shelby Weiser at Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.

Jason Sudeikis, the mind behind the Ted Lasso character and the star of the series, just won a Golden Globe for his performance.

“I read this book to my son, Otis, called The Three Questions by Leo Tolstoy and he has three questions like, ‘When’s the best time to do things? What is the right thing to do? And then who’s the most important one?’ And that last question, who’s the most important one, is the person you’re with. So, I kind of reject the premise of being best actor because in my humble opinion, the best actor is the person you’re acting with, so I want to give a shout-out to all the people I get to act with on this show.”

Production on the second season of Ted Lasso is underway now, with season three to come shortly after. You can watch the first season of the series now, the best experience being on the Apple TV 4K.
