The Girl Before tells the story of Jane played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who gets the chance to move into a beautiful, ultra-minimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect played by David Oyelowo.
There’s just one catch: occupants have to abide by his list of exacting rules. Jane starts to feel the house changing her in unexpected ways, but when she makes the shocking discovery about her predecessor Emma played by Jessica Plummer, she’s forced to confront unnerving similarities. As the two women’s timelines interweave, Jane begins to question if her fate will be the same as the girl before... also stars Ben Hardy.
Created, written and executive produced by JP Delaney, the limited four-part series is adapted from Delaney's own best-selling novel of the same title. Marissa Lestrade co-wrote episodes of the series and Emmy nominated Lisa Brühlmann directed.
The Girl Before begins Sunday 19th December on BBC One.
