THE TELEGRAPH – Towards the end of the first episode of The Cry, the BBC drama sent to fill the gaping Sunday night chasm left by Bodyguard, Jenna Coleman’s character, Joanna – a mother suffering from postnatal depression whose baby son suddenly disappears – talks about what it is like having two faces: one to be scrutinised by the public, another that exists in private.

It is, of course, a terrible cliché for an interviewer to draw parallels between an actor and the character they are playing. But given our insatiable social-media-fuelled appetite for personal information (and the fact that Coleman has had her love life very publicly dissected), when I meet the 32-year-old in a London hotel, I feel vaguely justified in trying to do just that.

She smiles. “I guess there is that,” she says. “I mean, I can definitely associate with that sensation of feeling… exposed.” Coleman was once linked with Prince Harry after she was photographed talking to him at a polo match. She used to go out with Richard Madden, star of Bodyguard (yes, she watched it) and is now shacked up with Tom Hughes, who plays her on-screen husband in Victoria. So she knows a bit about having all eyes on her.

The twist in The Cry, Coleman points out, is that the mother, Joanna, hasn’t signed up for anything like that. “She is a primary school teacher, who is quite shy, who is having to go through these horrific circumstances with all of these cameras pointed at her.” She notes that in the novel on which the new four-part drama is based, by the Australian thriller writer Helen FitzGerald, Joanna describes “feeling like an animal in a zoo”.

We now live in a world where every facial expression, every move, gets interpreted – and often as something that it isn’t. Coleman asks if I have seen the Nosedive episode of Charlie Brooker’s science fiction series Black Mirror, in which people give each other star ratings after every interaction.

Yesterday (September 03) a press day for Jenna’s upcoming mini series The Cry took place at the Soho Hotel in London.

She attended a photocall wearing a Chole Fall 2018 ensemble which featured a red & brown Baroque lurex jacquard knit turtleneck with slashed shoulders & split cuffs and the matching flared pants. The sleeves were adorned with the ‘Tilly’ brass gold bracelets. (thanks to The Fashionista Stories for the infos!)

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)
