Played By: Cillian Murphy



Played By: Naomie Harris

  • Brutal Honesty: She tells Jim in no uncertain terms that she will not hesitate to kill him or leave him behind if need be.
  • The Medic: Her job before the outbreak, which comes in handy in the new, post-outbreak world.



Played By: Megan Burns



Played By: Brendan Gleeson

  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: He's both. He's a total badass who can take charge, but he's a loving father, knows his wine, and appreciates the beauty that's still in the world.
  • Stepford Smiler: A fairly unique example. For the sake of his beloved daughter, he puts on a happy, cheerful face while keeping his own optimism alive. When speaking privately to Jim, he expresses more uncertainty. He also has a short-lived blow-up when the soldiers donít appear to be there. However, he quickly gets over this due to his sudden unfair infection and apologises to Hannah for shouting around her.



Played By: Noah Huntley

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Heís snarky and callous, but he has a wonderfully touching monologue about his family during the infection.


    Henry West 

Major Henry West

  • Affably Evil: West comes across as very genial, reasonable and well-composed. Ultimately, however, this turns out to not be the case.
  • An Officer and a Gentleman: Part of the image he projects.
  • A Father to His Men: West is extremely protective of his 'boys'.
  • Karmic Death: Hannah, who he planned to give to his troops to rape, delivers him into the loving hug of Mailer, the Infected soldier he'd been starving to death.


Sergeant Farrell

Played By: Stuart Mc Quarrie

  • Defector from Decadence: Farrell is disgusted by how far the other soldiers have slipped into savagery and draws the line at their plans to rape Hannah and Sarah.


Corporal Mitchell

Played By: Ricci Harnett

  • Eye Scream: Jim kills him by gouging out his eyes.
  • Jerkass: Aggressive, violent, bullying and smug.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: Mitchell is a sadistic piece of walking shit who wears a big grin when he's getting ready to do something horrible.


Private Jones

Played By: Leo Bill

  • Butt Monkey: He's delegated to Team Chef duties, bullied and taunted by his supposed comrades, and ultimately meets a horrible death.
  • Lethal Chef: Jones is no kind of chef, preparing an omelette with eggs that have long gone bad but figuring that if he used enough salt it would hide the flavour.
