Jenna Coleman Joins Serial-Killer Drama “The Serpent”

The Victoria star has joined The Serpent. 

According to multiple outlets, Jenna Coleman is set to play Marie-Andrée Leclerc, the partner and accomplice of French serial killer Charles Sobrhaj, played by Tahar Rahim, in the BBC and Netflix drama The Serpent.

She joins previously announced Ellie Bamber and Billy Howle.

The Serpent intoxicated me into the dark seductive world of Charles Sobhraj,” Coleman said. “I’m so looking forward to delving into hippie-trail depths and bringing to life this unfathomable real-life story alongside Tahar, Billy, Ellie, Tom, Richard and the wonderful cast and production team for the BBC and Netflix.”

The eight-part limited series is directed by Tom Shankland and Hans Herbots from a script by Richard Warlow and Toby Finlay. 

The series is currently filming on location in Thailand.
