Ted Lasso, a top-rated sports comedy series on Apple, stars many well-known performers in entertaining roles. Ted Lasso centres on an American football coach who is hired to work for an English soccer team and is based on a series of Premier League promotional videos. Unlike sitcoms that rely on sight gags and nonsequiturs, Ted Lasso’s humour is driven by its characters.
Ted Lasso is filled with unforgettable characters brought to life by excellent actors, from the eccentric comic personalities on the AFC Richmond squad to the vast array of demeanours behind the scenes on the coaching staff.
Some of Apple’s Ted Lasso’s most memorable characters are portrayed by Jason Sudeikis, Brett Goldstein, and Juno Temple. View Ted Lasso’s complete cast and character guide below…
