Variety reports Holliday Grainger to Star in J.K. Rowling’s ‘Cormoran Strike’ TV Series

British actress Holliday Grainger has been cast as Robin Ellacott opposite Tom Burke, who plays Cormoran Strike, in the BBC’s “The Strike Series,” which is based on J.K. Rowling’s bestselling crime novels written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

The series comprises “The Cuckoo’s Calling,” with three hour-long episodes; “The Silkworm,” with two hour-long episodes; and “Career of Evil,” also with two hour-long episodes. The series is set to begin shooting in November across London.

Grainger, who most recently starred in BBC’s “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” as Lady Constance Chatterley, will play Robin, assistant to Strike, a private detective operating out of a tiny office in London’s Denmark Street. Though she begins as a temporary secretary, managing Strike’s chaotic life, she soon becomes involved with his caseload and begins to see her true potential.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the talented creative team behind ‘The Strike Series,’ especially with the role of Robin Ellacott,” Grainger said. “Her grounded strength and intelligence is going to be a joy to explore. I can’t wait to dive straight into the wit and grit of Strike’s cannily well-observed London.”

“I couldn’t be more delighted about the casting of Holliday Grainger, who brought my Robin to perfect onscreen life during her audition. We’ve now secured two superb actors in the lead roles and I think they will create something very special together,” Rowling said.

Rowling, Neil Blair, Ruth Kenley-Letts and Elizabeth Kilgarriff will executive produce, based on scripts by Ben Richards (“The Tunnel: Sabotage,” “Spooks”), who will write “The Cuckoo’s Calling” and “The Silkworm,” and Tom Edge (“The Last Dragon Slayer,” “Lovesick”), who will write “Career of Evil.” Michael Keillor will direct “The Cuckoo’s Calling,” and Jackie Larkin will produce.

Charlotte Moore, director of BBC Content, and Ben Stephenson, former controller BBC Drama Commissioning, ordered the show. HBO has acquired U.S. and Canadian rights.

The series marks a continuation of the BBC’s relationship with Rowling’s production company, Brontë Film and TV, and Rowling herself. Brontë produced Rowling’s “The Casual Vacancy,” a three-part serial, which aired on BBC One in 2015.

Grainger is represented by Troika, WME and LBI Entertainment.

Holliday Grainger says Lady Chatterley’s Lover isn’t quite Fifty Shades Of Grey

WHILST the upcoming BBC One drama, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, is set to get pulses racing, Holliday Grainger says the titillating novel isn’t quite on the same level as E.L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey.

James Norton stars as Clifford, Lady Chatterley's husband

This Sunday, BBC One will be showing a modern incarnation of DH Lawrence’s infamously sexual novel which follows an aristocratic woman’s affair with a lowly gamekeeper, performed by Game of Throne’s Richard Madden.The original Lady Chatterley’s Lover by DH Lawrence was banned in Britain for over 30 years for its graphic sex scenes and obscene language, so there’s no wonder we are all waiting to see how far the BBC will go with their new adaptation.
But the new drama’s leading lady, 27-year-old Holliday, is less than impressed with the novel’s erotic reputation in comparison to modern S&M novels.“All I knew was that it was a really steamy, racy read and my grandparents had always said that the copy was well thumbed in libraries, and one particular middle central page!” said the actress who shot to fame in The Borgias.

Holliday Grainger has moved from Manchester to Hollywood… and now she’s an A-lister in the making

“My life hasn’t really changed but if you’d told me a few years ago I would ever have a stylist I’d never have believed it”

“This is the longest I’ve not worked since I was six,” muses Holliday Grainger, sipping at a green health drink as we sit in the California sunshine outside a vegan restaurant in Venice. It is a long way from Manchester where the actress was born and still lives most of the time, but the 27-year-old, who is currently starring in big-budget Hollywood film The Finest Hours, has things she has to do in the US.

It may not be her idea of work, but as soon as we finish lunch I drive her to a meeting in Santa Monica, and her ensuing days are booked up with auditions, interviews and more meetings. After several highly regarded TV series and films, The Finest Hours (in cinemas from Friday 19 February) is Holliday’s first American movie.
