THE OBSERVER – The other day Jenna Coleman gave birth for the seventh time. “I feel like my year has been literally maternity bras and pregnancy bumps,” she says over a cup of tea in acafénear her home in north London. “It’s becoming a parody now.” Before you start to worry about the medical anomaly that is Coleman’s uterus, rest assured it was all for the cameras. In real life, the 32-year-old Coleman has yet to have children: “I don’t know if the time is now for me,” she says. Onscreen, however, she has been through a long phase of playing mothers.

She is in the middle of filming the third series of Victoria, the hit ITV drama scripted by Daisy Goodwin in which Coleman plays the titular queen, and “we’re up to the seventh child now, which is just ridiculous”. Victoria ultimately had nine so, she adds, “I’m not out of the woods yet.” And then there’s the forthcoming BBC psychological drama, The Cry, in which Coleman plays Joanna, a young mother in present-day Glasgow, struggling to adapt to the demands of her newborn. Coleman had to pretend to give birth for that as well, screaming and gripping on to the side of the hospital bed with bared teeth and a sweat-drenched face. It was very convincing, I say. “Oh was it?” Coleman asks. “Good.” In order to get into the zone before filming a labour scene, she listens to music by Mumford & Sons. “There’s something about the banjo,” she explains. “I just try to get up a lot of adrenaline and for some reason the banjo and the drums, I think, help. I don’t know…” Has Coleman ever met her fellow actor, Carey Mulligan, who is married to the band’s frontman, Marcus Mumford? “No! Can you imagine if I did and said: ‘Your husband helps my labour scenes?’”

It turns out that giving birth is only the start of the action in The Cry. The four-part series, adapted from the eponymous novel by Australian author Helen Fitzgerald, centres on a shocking tragedy that triggers Joanna’s psychological unravelling. In charting her mental disintegration, the drama seeks to expose the myths and unacknowledged truths of motherhood. It’s a compelling watch, but in a piece so focused on the complexities of being a parent, I wonder if Coleman ever worried about not having children herself. “Yeah. I spent a good first chunk of it just thinking they’d completely miscast – and why on earth me?” she replies. “I’m not a mother! I really kind of hit myself over the head with it. I felt there was obviously something I wouldn’t be able to capture. It was something so… well, primal that I haven’t literally experienced. And I’ve really struggled with that.” She emailed all her friends who had babies asking for insight, and received reams of information in return, “just the kind of day-to-day realities of what it is being a new mum…”

VARIETY – AMC Networks’ Sundance has acquired “The Cry” for the Sundance Now streaming service. Starring Jenna Coleman (“Victoria”), the four-part series will play on the Sundance linear channel after its SVOD launch.

The psychological drama is an adaptation of Helen FitzGerald’s bestselling book of the same name. It stars Coleman and Ewen Leslie (“Top of the Lake: China Girl”), and follows a child abduction and the impact it has on the family as they face the scrutiny of the media.

Jan Diedrichsen, general manager of Sundance Now, said: “’The Cry’ is exactly the sort of top-quality, psychological thriller that our discerning audience craves, and we are excited to be the exclusive home of ‘The Cry’ in the U.S.”

In the U.K., the series will air on the BBC and in Australia on its pubcaster counterpart the ABC. “The Cry” is produced by Glasgow-based Synchronicity Films with the backing of Creative Scotland, December Media, Film Victoria and Sunbird Media Ltd. Filming took place in Scotland and Australia.

DRG handles distribution and did the Sundance deal. It is lining up further pre-sales. “Synchronicity’s vision for the book and high-profile lead cast allowed us to bring ABC in as a co-production partner early on, and these same factors – now coupled with beautifully shot footage – are generating extensive pre-sale conversations,” said Elin Thomas, DRG’s EVP of sales.

Coleman will also soon be seen in the third season of “Victoria,” which is on ITV in the U.K. and PBS in the U.S. (source)
