Killing Eve favorite Fiona Shaw has become the latest big name cast in The Enola Holmes Mysteries.
She joins Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, and Helena Bonham Carter in the movie based on Nancy Springer‘s book series.
Springer’s popular novels are based on the idea that Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes have a much younger sister, Enola, who is also an uncommonly capable detective. Brown is starring in the movie adaptation as Enola, with Cavill as Sherlock, and Bonham Carter as her mother. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shaw’s role in the movie is being kept under wraps.
Harry Bradbeer (Fleabag) is directing from a script by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, National Treasure).
Shaw, whose movie roles include Petunia Dursley in the Harry Potter franchise, is currently enjoying a major career revival – a “Fionaissance” perhaps. Earlier this year she won a BAFTA Award for her performance as MI6 boss Carolyn Martens in Killing Eve.
She also appeared opposite Ruth Wilson in the miniseries Mrs. Wilson and guest-starred in season two of Fleabag, the cult sitcom from Killing Eve‘s executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge. And she’s due to appear in the upcoming movie Ammonite, a romantic drama starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan.
