The cast of 'Dash and Lily' and where you might recognise them from

NetflixAustin Abrams and Midori Francis star on ‘Dash and Lily.’

Netflix’s latest original series, “Dash and Lily,” is the perfect combination of holiday festivities and teen romance.

The series, which debuts on Tuesday, November 10, is based on a young-adult book by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan and follows the prolonged meet-cute of Christmas-obsessed Lily and curmudgeon Dash.

From young newcomers to seasoned actors, here’s where you might recognise the cast of “Dash and Lily” from:


Austin Abrams, known for his roles on “The Walking Dead” and “Euphoria,” plays Dash.

Before starring as unfestive heartthrob Dash, Austin Abrams was best-known for his role as Ron Anderson on AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

More recently, the actor appeared on HBO’s “Euphoria” and NBC’s “This Is Us.”

Outside of TV, he was recently in the horror film “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” (2019) and Amazon’s original romance “Chemical Hearts” (2020), alongside Lili Reinhart.


Midori Francis, who stars as Lily, also played someone named Lily in the comedy “Good Boys” (2019).

Midori Francis stars as Lily on “Dash and Lily,” but so far, the actress is better known for her roles in films than on television.

Fans may recognise her as one of the leads from the comedy “Good Boys” or from her small role in “Ocean’s 8” (2018).

The actress has also appeared on shows like Fox’s “Gotham,” TV Land’s “Younger,” and Facebook Watch’s “The Birch.”


Dante Brown, who plays Boomer, was Roger Murtaugh Jr. on “Lethal Weapon.”

At only 21 years old, Dante Brown has already racked up a significant number of acting credits both in films and on television.

He’s well-known for his role as Roger Murtaugh Jr. on Fox’s “Lethal Weapon,” but he’s also appeared on shows like Fox’s “9-1-1,” NBC’s “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit,” NBC’s “Mr. Robinson,” and Showtime’s “Shameless.”

You may also recognise him from the 2019 horror film “Ma,” which starred Octavia Spencer.


Troy Iwata, who plays Lily’s brother Langston, has appeared as a guest star on a variety of TV series.

Fans may recognise the actor from his guest-starring roles on shows like NBC’s “New Amsterdam,” Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” ABC’s “Quantico,” and The CW’s “Katy Keene.”


Acclaimed actor James Saito, who plays Lily’s grandfather, was in “Always Be My Maybe.”

He’s best known as the original Shredder from the 1990 classic “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and as Dr. Chen from ABC’s “Eli Stone.”

His other credits include CBS’ “M*A*S*H,” Amazon Prime’s “Modern Love,” Netflix’s “Altered Carbon,” ABC’s “One Life to Live,” “Big Eyes” (2014), and “Life of Pi” (2012).

Actress Keana Marie has appeared in guest roles on a variety of TV shows, including ABC’s “The Goldbergs,” CBS’ “Life in Pieces,” and CBS’“Criminal Minds.”

But fans may recognise her best from her role as James on the Netflix comedy series “Huge in France.”

The actor was also in “Marmaduke” (2010) and “Helicopter Mum” (2014).
