Thunderbirds Are Go Cast

Major seismic activity in the middle of the Aegean Sea uncovers a sunken city on the sea bed. When the World Council identifies the ruins as the Lost City of Atlantis, television explorer Francois Lemaire and his long-suffering wife Madeline take their luxury submarine Jules Verne to investigate. Ignoring the warnings from Lady Penelope, the World Council’s representative, the Lemaires get caught in a seaquake and buried under an ancient statue; with their air tanks punctured, Francois is forced to contact International Rescue for help. Virgil and Gordon blast off in Thunderbird 2, accompanied by Max and Brains, the latter braving seasickness in the hope of finding the legendary Solarkythera, believed to be the first ever computer. Arriving off the coast off Greece, Thunderbird 2 deploys Thunderbird 4, which transports Gordon, Brains and Max down to the sea bed. However, as soon as Gordon has freed the Jules Verne, the ungrateful Lemaires speed off into the quake zone so that Francois can prove his mad theory that mer-people exist. Following the Jules Verne into the ruined Temple of the Gods, Gordon, Brains and Max surface into a breathable air pocket inside the building; they easily find the explorers – but then another seaquake causes half the building to come down, cutting them off from the two submarines with a wall of rubble. Luckily, John has sent Lady Penelope and Parker to help: FAB 1 arrives on the scene and blasts a hole in the rubble. But then a huge aftershock brings down more of the building, trapping everyone inside the temple. Looking for a way out, Francois and Brains are amazed to discover a huge, clockwork mechanism – the fabled Solarkythera…
