Deadline is exclusively reporting that Simona Brown, Tom Bateman, Eve Hewson and Robert Aramayo have signed up to star in Netflix’s psychological thriller Behind Her Eyes, the limited series adaptation of Sarah Pinborough’s novel.
Behind Her Eyes tells the story of Louise, a single mother and secretary who is stuck in a rut. On a night out she meets and kisses David, a young successful man, who turns out to be her new boss. To complicate matters she meets Adele, a new friend in town, who turns out to be David’s wife. As she becomes obsessed with the couple and entangled in the web of their marriage, they reach out to her. But only when she gets to know them both does she begin to see the cracks. Is David really the man she thought she knew and is Adele as vulnerable as she appears? Just what terrible secrets are they both hiding and how far will they go to keep them?
Simona Brown (whose credits include The Night Manager and The Little Drummer Girl) will be playing the role of Louise, Tom Bateman (whose credits include Murder On The Orient Express and Cold Pursuit) will be playing the role of psychiatrist David and Eve Hewson (whose credits include Robin Hood and Papillon) will be playing the role of Adele. The report doesn’t state what role Robert Aramayo will be playing in the series.
The drama has begun principal photography and shoots in Scotland and London.
