About the Supporting Cast
Sophie Okonedo and Zoe Isabella Kravitz round out the supporting cast of the film. Okonedo plays Faia Raige, the wife of Cypher Raige and the mother of Kitai. Kravitz plays Senshi Raige, the eldest daughter of the Raige family.
Of her character, Okonedo says, "She's very earthy, open, and emotional -- she talks from the heart. In some ways, that's the opposite of her husband -- he's military, so even though he's feeling all of the same emotions, he keeps it all inside. But that's what makes them a good match for each other -- they each bring out what the other needs."
Kravitz says she was excited to join the cast of After Earth because it represented a reunion of sorts for the young actress. "My mom was in Enemy of the State with Will," she remembers. "I went to the set and he was just so kind to me. I've seen him a few times over the years, and he's just the nicest guy. So now, to be able to work with him, is amazing -- he's so playful and genuine. He's a superstar, but he treats everybody the same, no matter their role on the cast or crew."
