GREAT EXPECTATIONS: FIRST LOOK AS OLIVIA COLMAN STARS IN BBC ADAPTATION

First-look images have been released of Olivia Colman as Miss Havisham alongside Fionn Whitehead as Pip and Shalom Brune-Franklin as Estella in Steven Knight’s forthcoming adaptation of Great Expectations for the BBC and FX.


They will appear in the six-part limited series alongside a stellar cast including Ashley Thomas, Johnny Harris, Hayley Squires, Owen McDonnell, Trystan Gravelle, Rudi Dharmalingam and Matt Berry.


Great Expectations is the coming-of-age story of an orphan nicknamed Pip. Dickens first released it in a series of weekly chapters beginning in December 1860 before it was subsequently published as a novel.



Filming on Great Expectations continues in the South of England. The series will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK.
