‘Tabula Rasa’ is a Flemish psychological thriller that first began to air on Belgian television before Netflix made it available to a global audience. While the show first premiered on October 29, 2017, it became available for streaming on March 15, 2018. It has been created by Malin-Sarah Gozin and Veerle Baetens.
The show follows a young woman suffering from amnesia, who becomes a key in a missing person case, and the only way to clear her name is to reconstruct her memory. Notably, the word tabula rasa itself means a clean slate and follows a theory that the knowledge of individuals comes through perception and experience, both of which our protagonist has to remember if she is to fill her clean slate with something coherent to help the case.
Even before Netflix increased access to the series, the show had struck a nerve with the audiences and critics, who believe it to be baffling, bold, and incredibly engrossing. If you like ‘Tabula Rasa’ we recommend watching ‘Memento‘, ‘Unknown‘, and ‘Before I Go To Sleep‘. Read on to know more about this show.
Tabula Rasa Cast: Who is in it?
Most of the cast of ‘Tabula Rasa’ is not part of mainstream Hollywood, so there is a chance that you might not recognize the actors, but their performances are sure to keep them etched in your memory.
We have Veerle Baetens playing the role of Annemie D’Haeze, the protagonist who must remember what happened to solve the case and save herself. Jeroen Perceval appears as Thomas De Geest, the person who has gone missing, while Gene Bervoets is seen in the role of Inspecteur Jacques Wolkers, who not only paints the amnesiac as a witness but also a suspect. Other members of Annemie’s family are Benoit and Romy, played by Stijn Van Opstal and Cécile Enthoven. There are several other main and recurring characters, be it the people involved in the hospital or with the case, and they all help in building the pace of this psychological thriller.
In the upcoming season, we fully expect the main cast to return, and perhaps there might be some new faces thrown into the mix as well.
