Hollywood actress Lucy Boynton gives the lowdown on the new TV adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?, which arrives on BritBox on Thursday 14th April 2022.
Star of ‘The Ipcress File’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Lucy Boynton joins a cast of famous faces in Hugh Laurie’s adaptation of Agatha Christie’s captivating murder-mystery ‘Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?’. The three-part series follows a vicar’s son and his adventurous friend, socialite Lady Frances ‘Frankie’ Derwent (Lucy Boynton) as they dig deep into a murder. But their amateur sleuthing brings no end of trouble their way. Lucy joins us in the studio to tell us why she can’t say no to an Agatha Christie saga, what it was like to be directed by Hugh Laurie and starring alongside Emma Thompson and Jim Broadbent.
Actress Lucy Boynton first appeared on screens aged 12 in ‘Miss Potter’ and has since gone on to star in hit films like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘Murder on the Orient Express’. She joins Lorraine to talk about stepping back into the 60s this weekend with ITV’s spy thriller ‘The Ipcress File’, based on the classic Michael Caine film.
"She's like a walking weapon."
Lucy Boynton character Jean, will be portrayed very differently in new drama 'The Ipcress File' than she was in the original book – and we can't wait to see. 💪
