“The Essex Serpent” – Claire Danes will star in the new Apple series

Last August, Apple commissioned a series based on the novel “The Essex Serpent” for Apple TV +. It was recently announced that Claire Danes will play the lead role in this production.

Originally, the main role in the series “The Essex Serpent” was to be played by Keira Knightley, known primarily from the series “Pirates of the Caribbean”, but in October last year she was forced to withdraw from the project for personal reasons. Her replacement Claire Danes, known, among others, from the series “Homeland” and “Moje so-called Życie” as well as the films “Romeo and Juliet” and “Hours”, he has to his credit four Golden Globes and three Emmy Awards.

The Essex Serpent series is an adaptation of a book by Sarah Perry, about a young widow who, after her husband’s death, moves from London to the small village of Aldwinter in Essex, where she learns of a local legend that the local forests are inhabited by an ancient beast hunting for careless travelers. Convinced that this is not really a mythical monster, but an undiscovered species of animal, she decides to investigate the matter. The series will be directed by Clio Barnard (including “Dark River” and “Selfish Giant”) and the author the script will be Anna Symon (including “Mrs. Wilson” and “Deep Water”).
