Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The last name "Rao" appears to have been added for the TV show.[3]
  • As with so many characters on the TV show, naming is inconsistent. His last name appears to match that of Chrisjen in a communication ID during a conversation about evacuation during "Home".
  • Arjun doesn't appear in the books until Caliban's War, but was brought into the first season for character development.
  • For Season 4, Arjun was recast and is now portrayed by Michael Benyaer.[1] Also he is now called Arjun Avasarala.
    • Due to the announced cancellation after Season 3, the original actor, Brian George, became unavailable having accepted other roles that conflicted with appearing on The Expanse.[4]
