The Cast

Cathy Lomax is interested in assumed identities and filmic representations of both fictitious and real characters. She has researched the many film and television interpretations of The Count of Monte Cristo, examining how this adventure story has been absorbed into and interpreted by contemporary popular culture. The Cast series reflects upon how different eras produce different versions of the same archetypes.
