Claire Foy to star in BritBox original series Marlow

Claire Foy has become a globally-known star thanks to her role as young Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown. So it’s quite a coup for the BBC/ITV streaming service, BritBox, to hire her for a new crime drama.

Variety says: “Eight-part thriller Marlow, from Motive Pictures and Endeavor Content, centres on feuding families the Marlows and the Wyatts, who have existed in the Edgelands of the Thames Estuary for centuries.

“Foy stars as Evie Wyatt, who was born and bred in the Estuary and returns to the Edgelands — the place she lost her father to a firestorm 15 years ago — in search of answers. However, drawn back into conflict with the Marlow clan, Evie finds herself in a battle with its ageing patriarch, Tom Marlow.”

Foy herself said of the role: “I’m delighted to be a part of this compelling thriller.

“Tony [Grisoni] and Simon’s [Maxwell] scripts are so evocative of place and redolent with atmosphere — and the twists, turns and mysteries at the heart of this drama are utterly gripping. Evie Wyatt is such a captivating, complex and beguiling character, much like the enigmatic Edgelands which she calls home, and I can’t wait to get to step into her shoes.”

Filming is set to begin in the autumn.
