‘Wednesday’ Star Emma Myers Lands Lead Role in BBC’s ‘A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder’

NOTE: This article is 9 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Emma Myers, who has been captivating audiences as Wednesday’s werewolf roommate Enid Sinclair in the Netflix sensation, is set to take on a new challenge. She will be leading the cast of the BBC’s adaptation of Holly Jackson’s best-selling mystery thriller, “A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder.”

Myers will be stepping into the shoes of Pip Fitz-Amobi, a smart and single-minded character who is not entirely convinced that schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend Sal Singh five years ago. The plot thickens as Pip wonders if the real killer is still at large and how far they might go to keep her from uncovering the truth.

Joining Myers is newcomer Zain Iqbal, who will be playing the role of Ravi. The adaptation is being penned by Poppy Cogan of “Red Rose” fame, with “Dracula” star Dolly Wells at the helm as director. The show is a high-profile commission for BBC Three, which is known for its youth-oriented content like the hit show “Normal People.”

Fiona Campbell, Controller of Youth Audience, BBC iPlayer and BBC Three, expressed her excitement about the casting choices. “In Emma and Zain we’ve found two actors who embody the characters so perfectly it will feel as though they’ve stepped straight from the pages of Holly’s books on to our screens. I can’t wait for BBC Three viewers to see them in action,” she said.
