The First Exclusive Look at Hayley Atwell in Limited Series ‘HOWARDS END’

May 4, 2017

Check out your first exclusive look that STARZ has released for their upcoming limited series, HOWARDS END, starring Hayley Atwell, which can be seen down below!

Currently filming in and around London, the photo features Atwell plays Margaret Schlegel and Mathew Macfadyen as Henry Wilcox at London’s Simpson’s-in-the-Strand restaurant. 

Based on the classic E.M. Forster’s novel of the same name, HOWARDS END tells the story of two independent and unconventional sisters and the men in their lives. Margaret (Atwell) is an intelligent, idealistic young woman who is courted by the older Henry Wilcox (Macfadyen), a self-made conservative businessman, after his wife Ruth Wilcox (Julia Ormond) dies unexpectedly and he becomes owner of Howards End. Meanwhile Margaret’s passionate and capricious younger sister Helen Schlegel (Philippa Coulthard) takes up the cause of Leonard Bast (Joseph Quinn) a young bank clerk who falls on hard times at work and at home with his partner Jacky (Rosalind Eleazar). In the absence of their late parents, the sisters’ loving but interfering Aunt Juley (Tracey Ullman) tries to keep the young ladies and their brother Tibby (Alex Lawther) on the straight and narrow.

Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea) adapted the script for TV. 

The four-part series will air on BBC One in the UK and Starz in the U.S. Playground executive produces in association with City Entertainment and KippSter Entertainment.
