Amanita Caplan, portrayed by Freema Agyeman, is major character in the Netflix series, Sense8. Amanita is the wife of Nomi Marks.

When Nomi experienced a collapse and is locked in a hospital, Amanita aids in her rescue; the two hide with their friends, while they investigate the doctor that planned to lobotomize Nomi and her sensate phenomena.

As the FBI pursue her girlfriend more, Amanita tags alongside Nomi, seeking shelter with Bug, continuing their investigation on BPO and aiding Nomi's cluster.


Early Life[]

Amanita grew up on a commune called “dancing waters”. She was born to Grace, and an unknown biological father (one of three men whom her mother is involved with). However, they and she consider them all her fathers. Amanita is the girlfriend of Nomi Marks and is aware of Nomi's status as a sensate. Additionally, she uses her research skills, networks, and resourcefulness to help Nomi's cluster escape Whispers. Amanita is revealed to work in a bookstore in San Francisco, and is shown supporting LGBT charities.

Preparation for Pride[]

Amanita first appears at the beginning of the episode, relaxing in the bathtub in her and Nomi's apartment when Nomi first sees Angelica. She and Nomi are later seen having sex, afterwards enjoying some time together, eating lunch and looking back at their times at Pride.[1]

Escaping the Hospital[]

As Nomi attempts to escape the hospital, she is almost caught but Amanita swoops in, disguised as a nurse with a wheelchair, and wheels her out. The pair are noticed by a security guard who demands they stop, but Amanita grabs a taxi and they escape. Nomi starts singing the same song Riley is listening to, and Amanita sings with her as they drive away from the hospital.[2]

Happy F*cking New Year[]

Amanita is introduced working in a bookstore, quickly being questioned by Agent Bendix about the whereabouts of Nomi Marks. Evading to answer his questions, she is warned that she, too, can be charged for harboring a fugitive. With Bendix leaving the store, Amanita resumes talking to Nomi.

Another scene shows Amanita with Nomi in the women's shelter, hiding in a bedroom. When they hear the knock signal, they swiftly collect their things and hide behind a crawlspace behind the dresser. Amanita can easily see Bendix through a opening. Once he leaves, they come out of hiding, choosing to leave the shelter for the safety of the other women that need the facility more than Nomi or her.

Nightfall, Nomi takes Amanita to Bug's boathouse, asking if she was sure this would be an appropriate hideout. Her girlfriend turns to her and answers that if she was sure, it would have been their first idea. They are greeted by Bug once more and are referred to as "Angels." He gives them a tour of his boathouse, admittedly a messy display, and shows them his large space, covered in undiscarded leftovers and trash. Both girls agree to take the much smaller space to stay in.[3]


Amanita is extremely kind and open minded, but she won’t hesitate to become angry and violent if someone ever touches the ones she loves. She’s deeply in love with Nomi and always tries to protect her. She’s also very aware of social issues such as racism or LGBTQ phobia. She’s a strong intersectional feminist and believes in women's solidarity, which is shown in several episodes. On top of that, she’s also very brave and doesn’t shake while facing a danger. The only thing that she ever seems to be truly frightened of is losing Nomi.
