Purefoy will play Remi, the ex-husband of Anderson’s sex therapist Jean and the father of her son Otis, played by Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game, Hugo). Purefoy will appear in several episodes, but not as a series regular; filming is currently underway in the UK.
Anderson broke the news herself with a tweet captioned “Happy-ish ex-families” that included a photo of her with Purefoy and Butterfield:
