23 TV Characters Recast After The Actor Quit the Show
Capheus “Van Damme” Onyango (Sense8)
Although Sense8 acquired something of a cult following, it was ultimately canceled after two seasons on Netflix. Afterward, the show did film a holiday episode as well as a two-hour series finale to wrap up its storylines. In those additional specials and the second season, the role of Capheus Onyango was played by a different actor than on the first season.
Initially, the part was played by Amil Ameen, but Toby Onwumere played him on the second season, plus the Christmas special and the finale. Apparently, Amil left the show due to creative differences, whatever that might mean.
