'The Girl on the Train': Meet the Passengers
RACHEL WATSON (Emily Blunt)
Our alcoholic heroine takes Metro-North into the city each day from the apartment she shares with a roommate, despite losing her job months ago. Now divorced from Tom Watson — who has remarried — Rachel busies herself by watching two strangers, Scott and Megan Hipwell, from the train.
ANNA WATSON (Rebecca Ferguson)
Anna, Tom’s new wife and baby Evie’s mother, started seeing Tom while he was still married to Rachel, but she doesn’t regret it. She is, however, furious that Rachel can’t seem to stop calling Tom or dropping by the house unexpectedly.
SCOTT HIPWELL (Luke Evans)
Passionate but volatile and controlling, Scott constitutes one half of the dream couple that Rachel fantasizes about from the train. He’s married to Megan and lives a few houses from Tom and Anna Watson.
MEGAN HIPWELL (Haley Bennett)
Young, beautiful, and mysterious, Megan is married to Scott Hipwell and lives down the street from Tom Watson and his new wife, Anna and their baby, Evie. Megan briefly worked as their nanny after losing her job at a gallery. She’s in therapy with Dr. Abdic when she disappears.
TOM WATSON (Justin Theroux)
Tom was previously married to Rachel, but left her for real estate agent Anna after Rachel’s alcoholism spun out of control. He and Anna have a newborn named Evie, and they live in the house he bought with Rachel.
DR. KAMAL ABDIC (Edgar Ramirez)
A psychologist of ambiguous ethnicity, Dr. Abdic is Megan’s therapist (and perhaps something more as well) who becomes an early suspect in Megan’s disappearance. Eventually, Rachel schedules her own sessions with Abdic, and he tries to help uncover her lost memory.
