Variety.com describes the joining cast members roles;
“Sapani will play Captain Jacob Keyes, described a dedicated military man, a war hero and a caring father […] Gray will play Dr. Miranda Keyes, a brilliant UNSC Commander who is dedicated to understanding the technology, language and culture of the Covenant, but she’ll have to learn to navigate the politics of the UNSC to get what she wants […] Murphy will play Makee, an orphaned human who was raised by the alien Covenant and shares their contempt for humanity,” writes Variety’s Joe Otterson.
