Casting announced for The Killing Kind

Paramount+ has announced the casting for The Killing Kind.

The six-part drama is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Jane Casey.

Leading the cast is Emma Appleton as Ingrid Lewis, a barrister whose world is thrown into a spin at the start of the series, and with paranoia sinking in, she doesn’t know who is a friend and who is a foe.

Starring opposite her is Colin Morgan as John Webster, Ingrid’s former accused and potentially dangerous client, who shows up again just as things start to take a dramatic turn.

Appleton said:

“I’m delighted to be working with such a talented team on such a thrilling show. When I first read THE KILLING KIND script I was so intrigued by Ingrid and the twists and turns we take as the story goes on.”

An experienced barrister, Ingrid got Webster off a charge of harassment following a complaint lodged by his ex-girlfriend. Ingrid grew close to Webster following the trial – too close – and when she tried to leave, he turned on her. The Killing Kind picks up with Ingrid just as she is rebuilding her life, but a tragic incident and Webster’s reappearance threatens to derail her.

Colin Morgan said:

“Getting the opportunity to explore a more dark and complex role with John Webster has been enlightening and such fun. Working with the brilliant Emma Appleton has already been such a highlight, along with the rest of the incredible cast. The story had me hooked from page one and I am looking forward to seeing it play out on screen.”

The cast also includes Elliot Barnes-Worrell as Ingrid’s ex-fiance Mark Orpen; Rob Jarvis as chief clerk at the legal chambers where she works, Tom Martins; Kerr Logan as firm but caring policeman DS Luke Nash; Sara Powell as Ingrid’s mentor and close friend, Belinda Grey and Nicholas Rowe as Belinda’s husband and head of Chambers, Angus Grey.

On the casting, Executive Producers Paula Cuddy and Eve Gutierrez said:

“We are delighted to have attracted such an outstanding cast on The Killing Kind and thrilled to commence production on this premium ‘Popcorn TV’ drama for Paramount+, with a fantastic production team – and with the brilliant director Zara Hayes at the helm.”

The series is produced by Eleventh Hour Films with filming taking place at The Bottle Yard studios in Bristol, with shoots planned for London at a later date.

Executive Producers for the series are Paula Cuddy, Eve Gutierrez and Jill Green alongside author Jane Casey, lead director and writer Zara Hayes and writer Jonathan A.H Stewart.

The Killing Kind will be available on Paramount+
