Lex to feature in The Poison Tree for ITV1

Lex to feature in The Poison Tree for ITV1

Lex Shrapnel will play Lenny in the ITV1 adaption of “The Poison Tree”. He has been cast alongside Myanna Buring, Ralph Brown and Ophelia Lovibond in this two-part drama, an adaptation of Erin Kelly's novel, all directed by Marek Losey (“DCI Banks”, “Two Steps Down”).

 

Myanna (pictured left) plays the role in this psychological thriller of straight-laced university student Karen, drawn into the world of a bohemian orphan, Biba (Lovibond). Biba lives in a crumbling mansion in Highgate with her brother Rex (Matthew Goode – Ozymandias in 2009’s “Watchmen”). She soon becomes entangled in the family’s history, and the story culminates in a murder, which casts a shadow over Karen’s future.

 

Swedish-born Myanna was seen earlier in 2012 in the BBC Two drama series “White Heat”, and played Tanya Denali in both parts of “The Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn”. She was also one of Screen International’s ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ in 2011.

 

Ralph Brown is famous for a multitude of roles, including Miami Vice in “Lock, Stock...” (2000), Duke in “Lexx” (2000), Wintersgill in “Meadowlands” (2007), and Dominic Soloman in “Nearly Famous” (2007).

 

Ophelia played Rachel Barton in “Single” (2003), Daisy in “FM” (2009) and Kitty Carlton in the 2012 mini-series “Titanic: Blood and Steel”.

 

Nine year-cold Lucy Hutchinson plays Young Biba.

 

The novel has been adapted by Emilia di Girolamo, the head writer on the ITV1 drama “Law & Order: UK”. The production is filming in London.

 

Although unconfirmed, there is a possibility that ITV1 will screen this mini-series as early as November 2012.  More news as soon as we get it.
