‘The Umbrella Academy’ Cast & Character Guide


  • Elliot Page as Number Seven / Viktor Hargreeves / The White Violin / Umbrella Number Seven, a meek violinist, alienated from his siblings as he has no apparent supernatural abilities, who writes a damning tell-all book about his childhood. In reality, he can convert sound waves into physical force, an ability his father suppressed with drugs as he considered it too powerful to control. The character is known as Vanya and referred to as female until he comes out as a transgender man in the third season, going by Viktor. This change corresponds with Page’s own transition. T.J. McGibbon and Alyssa Gervasi portray the character as a teenager and a 4-year-old, respectively.

  • David Castañeda as Diego Hargreeves / The Kraken / Umbrella Number Two, a rebellious troublemaker with a mild telekinetic ability to curve the trajectory of moving objects, including knives and bullets. His jealousy of Luther for his father’s affections led to him becoming a vigilante after leaving the Umbrella Academy.
