Helena Bonham Carter to star in ITV drama 'Nolly'


LOS ANGELES: Helena Bonham Carter, star of “The Crown” and “Harry Potter” movies, will play the lead in “Nolly”, an ITV biopic from “It’s A Sin” creator Russell T Davies.

It marks the debut venture for Nicola Shindler’s Quay Street Productions, backed by ITV Studios, and Davies’ return to the community for a present since 2004.

Bonham Carter will essay the position of Noele Gordon, who performed Meg Richardson within the hit ITV cleaning soap “Crossroads” earlier than being abruptly fired on the peak of the present’s success.

The three-part drama reunites Davies with long-time collaborator Shindler, who he has labored with on a number of tasks together with “It’s A Sin” for her earlier outfit Red Production Company, reported Deadline.

Peter Hoar, who helmed “It’s A Sin”, will direct “Nolly”.

Shindler, who’s connected as government producer on the collection together with Davies, mentioned she is wanting ahead to the drama which is their first for her newly-minted banner.

“I couldn’t be prouder or more excited that the first drama we will be filming for Quay Street Productions is this beautiful script by Russell T Davies. And that Helena Bonham Carter will star as such an iconic British woman is dream casting,” the producer mentioned.

ITV Head of Drama Polly Hill described “Nolly” as a “bold exploration of how the establishment turns on women who refuse to play by the rules, the women it cannot understand and the women it fears”.

“Russell’s scripts are magnificent and a great tribute to Noele Gordon, but also to our national love of soaps and a celebration of the incredible women they create,” she added.
