All these exciting things were revealed during the panel dedicated to star trek universe from super showrunner Alex Kurtzman for Paramount+. On stage were series stars Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets) and Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), along with executive producers Kurtzman, co-showrunner Michelle Paradise and Rod Roddenberry.

The pictures of these actors in the shoes of these new characters in the series can be found at the end of the article.
Regarding the latter, the Paramount Global streamer also posted their official descriptions:
Played by Rennie, “Rayner is a gruff, smart Starfleet captain who maintains a clear line between commander and crew—he leads, they follow. Rayner thinks only of the mission, whatever it is, and doesn’t bother with subtleties along the way; his feeling is to get the job done and apologize later He has a brilliant history of success in wartime, but in peacetime he struggles “Cooperation is not his forte. That said, if it’s in the public interest, he’s willing to learn…but it won’t be easy.”
Harlow (pictured) plays “Moll, a highly intelligent and dangerous former courier turned outlaw with an impressive strategic mind and quick wit. She approaches every situation with a clear plan and remains focused and clear-headed on her goal even when things go wrong . what she wants.”
Finally, Toufexis’ L’ak (below) is “a former courier turned outlaw who is tough, impulsive and fiercely protective of his beloved partner, Moll. As long as he knows she’s safe, he doesn’t care collateral damage or its consequences – a perspective that makes him very dangerous at times and will put him on the opposite side of Captain Burnham and the crew of the USS Discovery when they come into conflict.
