FILMING HAS STARTED ON THE TV ADAPTATION OF J K ROWLING’S THE CASUAL VACANCY

Fri Jul 11

Marie Critchley and Hetty Baynes Russell will appear in the upcoming TV adaptation of J K Rowling’s novel, THE CASUAL VACANCY.

Marie stars as ‘Ruth Price’ and Hetty as ‘Mo Johnson’  in the eagerly anticipated BBC/HBO three-part miniseries. Also starring in the mini are Michael Gambon (Harry Potter),  Keeley Hawes (Line Of Duty), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Monica Dolan (Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa), Julia McKenzie (Notes On A Scandal), and Rufus Jones (Bil). Directed by Jonny Campbell from a script by Sarah Phelps, THE CASUAL VACANCY is set in Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the pretty façade, however, is a town at war: rich vs. poor, teenagers vs. parents, wives vs. husbands, teachers vs. pupils.

The air date is yet to be announced.
