Hello, 
I have been trying to add some credits for the His Dark Materials (2019) cast list, but the info has been declined.
Therefore I'm sharing the evidence for the information in hopes it'll manage to get at least some of the info published and shared with other fans such as me.

  1. Amir Wilson will star in Series 2 as Will Parry.
    Tweet from the official His Dark Materials twitter
    Amir's page on his talent agency's website
    This is a lead role. Admittedly I only know that because of my knowledge of the plot.
  2. Amit Shah will appear in Series 1 as Dr Rendal. 
    His official CV
    The only episode directed by Euros Lynn is Episode 6, Series 1, so logically that'll be the episode Amit Shah will be appearing in.
  3. Omid Djalili will appear in Series 1 as Dr Lenselius
    Tweet from the official His Dark Materials twitter
    Spotlight CV
    Director Otto Bathurst worked on Series 1, Episodes 4-5, therefore Omid Djalili will be appearing in either one or both of them. 
  4. David Langham will appear as Father Garret
    Spotlight CV 
    Tom Hooper directed Episodes 1-2 in Series 1, and Otto Bathurst worked on Series 1, Episodes 4-5, therefore David Langham will be appearing in at least two of those episodes.
  5. Joi Johannsson will portray Iofur Raknison in Series 1. 
    Spotlight CV
    Joi Johannsson will be voicing this character (a talking polar bear). Admittedly I only know that because of my knowledge of the plot. His CV should be proof enough to confirm his involvement in the shoe either way.
  6. Ian Gelder will appear as Librarian Scholar Charles.
    Official BBC announcement
    Ian Gelder's page on his agency's website
    Ian Gelder's CV
    He will be appearing in one or both of the first two episodes of Series 1 (dir. Tom Hooper).
  7. Archie Barnes will portray Pantalaimon
    That is also a voice-over role, and a series regular as well, although again I have no proof of it except for knowledge of the plot.
    Official BBC announcement
    Archie Barnes' page on his agency's website
  8. Ray Fearon will appear as Mr Hanway
    His CV
    I cannot deduce which episodes he will be appearing in as his directors are listed as "various".
  9. Lia Williams will appear as Dr Cooper
    Her CV
    Her tweet confirming her character's identity
    The only episode directed by Euros Lynn is Episode 6, Series 1, so logically that'll be the episode she will be appearing in.
    Admittedly her twitter isn't verified, but her CV should be enough to prove that she appears in the series.
  10. Raffiella Chapman will appear as Annie
    Her CV
    I cannot deduce which episodes she will be appearing in as her directors are listed as "various".
  11. Morfydd Clark will appear as Sister Clara
    Her CV
    She will be appearing in one or both of the first two episodes of Series 1 (dir. Tom Hooper).
I hope this info will be proof enough to have at least some of these credits added to show's page on IMDb. 
Thank you for reading.
