Jenna-Louise Coleman cast in 'Death Comes to Pemberley'
Coleman will be playing Lydia Wickham, sister to the heroine of the original novel, Elizabeth Bennet. In Death Comes to Pemberley Lydia, known for being somewhat reckless in the past, arrives on the doorstep of the stately home Elizabeth shares with her husband, Mr. Darcy, to deliver news of a terrible murder. It sounds like it could be a very interesting part for Coleman to play, as fans of both the original novel and P.D. James' sequel will know well. We've all seen how well she can act, but this is a very different role from 'the impossible girl' and it's a great opportunity for her to stretch her legs in others areas of film and television.
Death Comes to Pemberley will commence shooting later this month.
