Details on Purnell’s role have not been revealed, but according to sources, the character will be “upbeat and strangely direct with an all-American spirit.” Your cast follows that of the character actor Walton Goggins, the first actor to be announced for the show, who will supposedly play a ghoul or a guy named Ghoul. (I suspect it’s the first.)
I’m not familiar with Purnell’s work, but a quick visit to IMDB reveals a slew of television and film roles stretching back over a decade, including – this is the most immediately relevant to our interests – as the voice of Jinx in The League. of Legends Arcane animated series.
Purnell also stars in the critically acclaimed Showtime series Yellowjackets, which was recently renewed for a second season, and the animated series Star Trek: Prodigy on Nickelodeon, and had a starring role in Zack Snyder’s 2021 zombie movie Army of the Dead.
Production on the Fallout television series is expected to begin sometime this year, but a release date has not been announced.
