Finn Jones – as – Danny Rand / Iron Fist (The Sarah Janes Adventures, Game Of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3645691/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
- A billionaire Buddhist monk and martial artist proficient in kung-fu, with the ability to call upon the mystical power of the Iron Fist. Jones described the character as “someone struggling to find his identity”, and identified with the character’s loneliness being an orphan like Rand. He noted that “Danny gets really stressed and really pissed off sometimes, and I understand that … [his] optimism and where that comes from.”In preparation for the role, Jones studied kung fu, wushu, and tai chi, along with weight training, Buddhist philosophy, and meditation. Toby Nichols portrays a young Danny Rand.
Jessica Henwick – as – Colleen Wing (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3725055/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
- A martial artist ally of Rand who runs her own martial arts dojo called Chikara Dojo in New York City. Henwick felt the most defining word for Wing was “alone”, saying, “She doesn’t want to be anyone’s love interest and open herself up in that way.” Henwick also tried “to pull out that sort of very dry humor that [Wing] has, and that no bullshit New Yorker demeanor” from the comics version in her portrayal.
Tom Pelphrey – as – Ward Meachum (Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Banshee) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1670601/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
- The son of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with his sister Joy is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Ward is a character from the comics, though Pelphrey noted “we’re not necessarily beholden to representing him [in the series] exactly as he appears in the comic book.” Stroup said that Ward would experience some “male angst” on Rand’s return, because “Ward would have been the one who picked on [Rand] when he was little so as pure and innocent and great as Iron Fist is, he comes in and he causes some problems” there. Ilan Eskenazi portrays a teenage Ward Meachum.
Jessica Stroup – as – Joy Meachum (90210, The Following, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1888211/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
- The daughter of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with her brother Ward is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Stroup said that Joy “absolutely loves” Rand, and his return to New York is “like this rebirth of what she once was, and she gets to ask these questions about herself because he’s posing them to her.” Stroup said that Joy would initially be unsure whether Rand is who he says he is. Aimee Laurence portrays a young Joy Meachum.
Ramón Rodríguez – as – Bakuto (The Wire, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Charlie’s Angels TV Series, Need for Speed) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1913125/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t9

- A skilled martial artist who is the son of Lei Kung and Rand’s former best friend in K’un-Lun, who grew envious when Rand became the Iron Fist. Although Dhawan first appeared in the ninth episode of the first season, Dhawan noted that the majority of Davos’ storyline was intended to be explored in a potential second season.
Rosario Dawson – as – Claire Temple (Josie and the Pussycats, Men in Black II, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, Sin City, Rent, Clerks II, Robot Chicken, Gemini Division, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Defenders) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0206257/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

- A ruthless corporate leader and co-founder of Rand Enterprises who was partners with Rand’s parents at the time of their deaths. Regarding Harold’s relationship with his children, Joy and Ward, Wenham said the dynamic between the three of them “is complex, to say the least.
