Japanese British actress Sonoya Mizuno is joining Emma Stone and Jonah Hill as a series regular on Netflix’s “Maniac,”. The dark comedy series is being helmed by Cary Fukunaga and is based on a 2014 Norwegian series about two patients in a mental institution.

Viewers might recognize Mizuno from her breakout role as Kyoko, the silent female AI bot in Alex Garland’s Oscar-nominated “Ex Machina.” She will also be in Garland’s upcoming “Annihilation.”

Mizuno had a small role as Emma Stone’s roommate in “La La Land,” and recently wrapped up filming for Jon M. Chu’s “Crazy Rich Asians,” in which she plays Araminta Lee, a relative of the insanely rich Singaporean character played by Henry Golding.
