Netflix's newest out-of-this-world hit Away boasts a cast that looks awfully familiar: It features Oscar winners, international stars, and a couple of fresh faces. The 10-episode show follows an international space team and their crazy-long journey from the moon to the planet Mars—so, like, your average run-of-the-mill space trip. Except it includes all the stuff going down with their friends and family on Earth, too. It's heavy on the drama, but with a plot as good as this one, it's hard not to binge. So while you're freaking out over whether we'll get a season two (opens in new tab) anytime soon, I took the liberty of figuring out why the Away cast looks so familiar and exactly where you've seen them before.
Hilary Swank as Emma Green
The two-time Oscar winner has been on the scene since the '90s, but you most likely recognize her from films like Million Dollar Baby, P.S. I Love You, and Boys Don't Cry.

Monique has starred in a handful of your favorite TV shows like Power, Elementary, and Lie to Me.

Any Mad Men fans here? If so, you probably remember Markinson as Dr. Arnold Rosen. If that doesn't ring a bell, then perhaps you'll remember him as Albert in a Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce.

Martin Cummins as Jack Willmore
Riverdale fans, please rise—who could forget Cummins as Officer Tom Keller on the infamous CW show? He's also acted in other TV shows like UnREAL and When Calls The Heart.
Josh Charles as Matt Green
You most likely recognize Charles from his Golden Globe-nominated role as Will Gardner on The Good Wife, but if you really want to throw it back, you'll also remember him as Knox Overstreet in Dead Poets Society.
Ray Panthaki as Ram Arya
The British actor has been on the scene for a hot minute. staring in big films like Colette and television dramas such as Gangs of London.
Mark Ivanir as Misha Popov

Ato Essandoh as Dr. Kwesi Weisberg-Abban
Essandoh's been in a ton of your favorite action films like Jason Bourne, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and Blood Diamond. And if big blockbusters aren't your taste, then you may recognize him from TV shows Elementary and Blue Bloods.
