  • "One Day" is Netflix's latest romance series, based on David Nicholls' bestselling novel.

  • The cast has many actors from HBO hit shows, such as Leo Woodall, Tim McInnerny, and Essie Davis.

  • Here's where you might recognize the show's stars from.

Netflix's "One Day" has several stars you may recognize from hit HBO shows.

The new romance series follows a 20-year relationship between Dexter Mayhew (Leo Woodall) and Emma Morley (Ambika Mod), which begins when they meet on the last day of university in 1988. Each episode is set on July 15 but in a different year.

Many fans quickly realized that Woodall previously starred in the second season of HBO's "The White Lotus." The "One Day" cast also features actors from "Game of Thrones" and "House of the Dragon."

Here's a quick breakdown of the main cast and other shows and movies they were in.

Leo Woodall had a breakout performance in "The White Lotus" season two.

Woodall plays Dexter Mayhew, a middle-class student who struggles to transition into adulthood.

Woodall is best known for starring as Jack in the second season of "The White Lotus." After the series aired, it was rumored that Woodall was dating his costar, Meghann Fahy, but they haven't said whether that's true.

Woodall also appeared in "Citadel," "Vampire Academy" and "Cherry."

Ambika Mod stood out in the British medical drama "This is Going to Hurt."

Tomlinson started acting as a teenager and starred in the teen rom-com movie "Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging." Her next biggest role was starring as Demelza in "Poldark."
