Let’s get this out of the way right up front: Actress Erin Doherty is absolutely one of the best voices in the world of cinema and television at the moment. From her jaw-dropping work in The Crown to her solid and revelatory mining of the emotional depths in such fare as Les Miserables and Intelligent Design, Doherty has been an exciting talent to watch in each subsequent production she features in. That innate ability to transform herself and the audience watching her is about to expand yet again in a production called Chloe, according to our pals at The Hollywood Reporter.
Graduating from her role as Princess Anne in The Crown, Erin Doherty has officially signed on to act in the upcoming Amazon/BBC thriller series Chloe. An ensemble, the six-part show also features consummate thespians Billy Howle (The Serpent), Pippa Bennett-Warner (Gangs of London) and Jack Farthing of Poldark fame.
Chloe is about a woman named Becky (played by Doherty) who still lives at home with her mom while working as a temp. The isolated woman becomes fascinated by the seemingly idyllic world of an Instagram user by the name of Chloe. When Chloe mysteriously winds up dead, Becky endeavors to uncover the mystery of her death.
Alice Seabright, the creator of Chloe said in a press release today that Doherty’s character “is a complex, courageous heroine and there is no one better to play her than Erin. All these characters have been a dream to write, and it now feels like they’ve found their soulmates in our amazing cast. I can’t wait to start bringing the show to life with them, and with our wonderful crew. Thank you to the BBC and Amazon, to our brilliant writers, Kayleigh Llewellyn, Poppy Cogan, and Bolu Babalola, and to my partners in crime – the powerhouses Tally Gardner and Morven Reid.”
Always nice to see Erin Doherty in a production; take it from us here at Vents: She’s one to keep an eye on!
Created, written, directed and executive produced (whew!) by Alice Seabright, Chloe has recently begun production with a drop date on the BBC and Amazon Prime yet to be determined.
