Victoria Jenna Coleman in new Scots drama series The Cry

The 31-year-old Victoria actress Jenna Coleman has landed a role in The Cry – a tense thriller based on Glasgow novelist Helen Fitzgerald’s hit book. Coleman, who confirmed last month that she will be returning to play Queen Victoria in a third series of the ITV hit, said she relished her latest role. She added: “I first read Jacquelin Perske’s script on a plane.
“It felt like walking a tightrope, racing page to page, unsettling, unknowable, uncomfortable and thrilling.
“I look forward to tackling this challenge.”
The thriller, which will be shot in Glasgow and Australia, also stars Scots actor Ewan Leslie, last seen in hit dramas including Safe Harbour and Top of the Lake. It is being made by Scots producers Synchronicity Films.
The Cry is about a couple who find their life turned upside down when their baby is abducted from a small town in Australia.
The parents come under intense public scrutiny as they start to unravel under the pressure.Australian-born novelist Fitzgerald is one of Scotland’s most successful psychological thriller writers of recent years. She has also been a criminal justice social worker. Leslie added: “From Helen FitzGerald’s addictive and exciting novel, to Jacquelin Perske’s beautifully written scripts, I’m absolutely thrilled to be a part of the amazing team that has been formed to bring these complicated characters and thrilling story to the screen.
