Legendary’s Enola Holmes movie adds Susie Wokoma to cast
Following the recent addition of The Hunger Games alum Sam Claflin, Deadline reports that British actress Susie Wokoma (Chewing Gum) has been tapped to join Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown in Legendary’s upcoming film adaptation of Enola Holmes. Based on YA author Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes Mysteries novel series, the movie will also star Academy Award-nominated actress Helena Bonham Carter (King’s Speech) as Enola Holmes’ mother, Henry Cavill (Justice League) as Sherlock Holmes, Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve) and Adeel Akhtar (Murdered by My Father).
The Edgar Award-nominated YA book series kicked off in 2006 with The Case of the Missing Marquess and spans six installments centering on Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ teenage sister as she strikes out as a capable detective.
