Talking about the film, in which she will play Kya, Edgar-Jones said, “I just feel that this idea of isolation was such a resonant one when I read it because of the climate that we’re currently living in. We’ve all experienced such loneliness and disconnect to our friends and our family because of the pandemic, so being able to escape into Kya’s world and see how she finds comfort and solace and love through the connections she makes with the beautiful natural world that’s around her I just found incredibly comforting and moving.”

The book, by Delia Owens, tells the story of a young, reclusive girl who lives out in the marshes until she is suspected of murdering a popular local.

“I just feel so privileged and excited to be able to be playing her,” the actress continued. “I think she’s such a special character and such a special person and I think this book will stay with me forever, so to be able to step inside her world for the next few months, I just feel very lucky and I could not recommend this book enough.”
