Knock at the Cabin cast - meet the stars of the new Shyamalan movie

M Night Shyamalan has a new thriller movie, so let's find out who is in the Knock at the Cabin cast as the 2023 horror movie makes its rounds.

Knock at the Cabin cast: Rupert Grint

Who is in the Knock at the Cabin cast? Knock at the Cabin is the 2023 release from renowned thriller movie director M. Night Shyamalan.

Knock at the Cabin is M. Night Shyamalan’s newest movie and it isn’t one that fans of the director will want to miss. As we say in our Knock at the Cabin review it’s comfortably the best movie he’s released in several years. It follows a family on vacation, who find themselves under attack from a group of four strangers who tell them that they are the key to preventing the apocalypse.

Part of what makes the horror movie so effective is its excellent  small cast. So let’s take a look at the Knock at the Cabin cast, and learn more about the stars of the latest Shyamalan thriller movie.

Who is in the Knock at the Cabin cast?

  • Dave Bautista as Leonard
  • Ben Aldridge as Andrew
  • Jonathan Groff as Eric
  • Kristen Cui as Wen
  • Rupert Grint as Redmond
  • Nikki Amuka-Bird as Sabrina
  • Abby Quinn as Adriene

Knock at the Cabin cast Dave Bautista

Dave Bautista as Leonard

Dave Bautista has, arguably, the biggest role as the leader of the four invaders. He gives his best performance here since starring as Sapper Morton in the science fiction movie Blade Runner 49, similarly soft and brimming with pathos. This is a great contrast to his physical size and intimidation and means that we’re never quite sure what to make of Bautista as Leonard.

After Knock at the Cabin, Bautista will return to his superhero movie franchise as the MCU character Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. When he’s done with that, he’ll be sure to take on more interesting roles like Leonard.

Knock at the Cabin cast: Ben Aldridge

Ben Aldridge as Andrew

Ben Aldridge is best known for his roles on British TV series, such as the drama series Fleabag, and Our Girl. This is his biggest role to date, and he gets to step up to the plate alongside great performances.

His romantic connection with Jonathan Groff is utterly convincing, and heartfelt, and acts as the emotional core of the movie.

Knock at the Cabin cast: Jonathan Groff

Jonathan Groff as Eric

Jonathan Groff has had a fascinating career, and his choices continue to be interesting with Knock at the Cabin.

Previously starring in the action movie The Matrix Resurrections as Agent Smith, and leading the Netflix series Mindhunter, Knock at the Cabin is his first foray into horror. Groff is also a ridiculously talented singer, as proved in the musical Hamilton and comedy series Glee, and uses that to great effect in this new movie.

Knock at the Cabin cast: Kristen Cui

Kristen Cui as Wen

Kristen Cui is the first face we see in the movie, as the young and inquisitive Wen. She plays the daughter of Andrew and Eric, who first meets Leonard while she’s catching grasshoppers. Her performance as Wen is her first acting role, and it’s an impressive debut for the young actor. Expect to see more of her down the line.

Rupert Grint as Redmond

Rupert Grint’s role in Knock at the Cabin as Redmond is his second collaboration with M. Night Shyamalan, coming in alongside the TV series Servant. It’s also his first major movie release since the end of Harry Potter, and will be the first time that a large audience has seen the actor in something new since the Harry Potter movies ended.

And, if you’re expecting Grint’s role in Knock at the Cabin to be anything like his turn as Ron Weasley then you’re set for a shock. As Redmond, Grint plays an angry, violent, and ambiguous character, giving him a chance to highlight his range and flex his muscles as a performer.

Knock at the Cabin cast: Nikki Amuka-Bird

Nikki Amuka-Bird as Sabrina

Nikki Amuka-Bird is one of the standouts in the Knock at the Cabin cast, but it’s likely that audiences won’t be too familiar with her work. She’s starred in plenty of small TV roles but recently took on a main role in the sci-fi series Avenue 5. She’s also worked with Shyamalan before, and she appeared in Old in 2021 as Patricia Carmichael.

Knock at the Cabin cast: Abby Quin

Abby Quinn as Adriene

Abby Quinn plays Adriene in Knock at the Cabin. Adriene is a line-cook, and a mother, and gives an impressive performance here as someone wracked with fear and uncertainty.

If you recognise her, that could be from her minor role in Better Call Saul, where she plays Kristy Esposito. Despite only appearing in one episode, she stands out there just as she does here.
