Ben Hardy Begins Filming The Woman In White

Ben Hardy (EastEnders) has begun a thirteen week shoot in and around Belfast for BBC One’s five-part adaptation of Wilkie Collins’ novel The Woman In White, written by Fiona Seres and directed by Carl Tibbetts.

After Walter Hartright (Ben Hardy) encounters a ghostly woman dressed in all white on a moonlit road, he soon finds himself drawn into a mysterious and disturbing world. Romance, suspense, and danger combine as secrets come to the fore in a haunting tale of insanity and identity.

Carl Tibbetts, says: “I am excited to be directing this bold contemporary reimagining of Wilkie Collins classic Victorian thriller. We have a fantastic cast who will bring some of his best loved characters to vivid life.”

The Woman In White also stars Jessie Buckley (War And Peace) as Marian Halcombe, Olivia Vinall (Apple Tree Yard) as Laura Fairlie, Charles Dance (And Then There Were None) as Mr Fairlie and Dougray Scott (The Replacement) as Sir Percival Glyde.

The cast is rounded out by Art Malik (Sherlock), Joanna Scanlon (No Offence), Vicki Pepperdine (Getting On) and Riccardo Scamarcio (London Spy).
