Captain Khora Mortal Engines Rege Page

Mortal Engines author Philip Reeve has confirmed that actor Regé-Jean Page is playing the character of Captain Khora.  Khora is master and commander of the gunship Mokele Mbembe.

In the novel, Khora is a minor Anti-Tractionist character that encounters Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw.

Reeves has suggested that he may have a bigger role to play in the movie, and indeed so will Jihae's Anna Fang. 

Reeve confirmed this news in an article he wrote on his blog.

Pages' IMDB bio describes himself as thus:

Regé-Jean Page is a British-Zimbabwean actor whose upbringing saw him travel across Africa, Europe, the US, and the UK before he finally settled in London.

An alum of the National Youth Theatre and trained at the infamous Drama Centre London, Regé is best known for Roots (2016), Survivor (2015), and Waterloo Rd (2006).
