ON

Hayley Atwell (Cassandra’s Dream) has been cast as the female lead in Julian Jarrold’s Brideshead Revisited, set to shoot in May.

Atwell will play the aristocratic Julia Flyte, opposite Ben Whishaw as her dissolute brother Sebastian and Matthew Goode as his best friend and her lover Charles Ryder.

Brideshead Revisited is adapted from Evelyn Waugh’s novel about forbidden love and the loss of innocence, set among the declining British aristocracy before the Second World War.
