Academy Award-winner Anjelica Huston has been cast in Towards Zero, the latest BBC/BritBox Agatha Christie series adaptation. Huston will play the aunt of lead character Nevile Strange (Oliver Jackson-Cohen).

After a scandalous celebrity divorce, the British tennis star and his ex-wife Audrey (Ella Lily Hyland) make the unthinkable decision to spend a summer together at Gull’s Point, their childhood home and the coastal estate of Nevile’s aunt, Lady Tressilian (Huston).

The series also stars Jackie Clune (Motherland)Grace Doherty (Call the Midwife), Jack Farthing (Rain Dogs), Khalil Gharbia (Mary & George), Adam Hugill (Sherwood), Mimi Keene (Sex Education), Clarke Peters (The Wire), Emmy winner Matthew Rhys (The Americans) and Oliver Award-winner Anjana Vasan (Black Mirror: Demon 79).

Huston said of the role:

“I have long been a fan of Agatha Christie and the murder-mystery genre and always love the opportunity to film in England. I am thrilled to be working with director Sam Yates and this wonderful cast, and excited to play the clever and dignified Camilla, Lady Tressilian.”

Towards Zero follows last year’s Murder is Easy and is one of a new generation of Christie adaptations that are not being penned by Sarah Phelps for the BBC and BritBox. Rachel Bennette (NW) is behind this one, with Sam Yates (Magpie) directing and Mammoth Screen producing with Agatha Christie Limited. Cameras are rolling in Bristol and Devon.
