The cast has been revealed for Channel 4's highly anticipated adaptation of Candice Carty-Williams's bestselling novel 'Queenie', with Michelle Greenidge playing Queenie's devoutly religious Aunty Maggie.
The 8-part series, which is being produced by Channel 4 in conjunction with Lionsgate and Disney, will star Dionne Brown in the title role. Queenie Jenkins is a twenty-five-year-old Jamaican British woman living in South London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. After a messy break up from her long-term boyfriend Tom, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places, and begins to realise she has to face the past head on, before she can re-build.
'Queenie' was Carty-Williams's debut novel which became a publishing phenomenon, winning numerous accolades including British Book of the Year in 2020, making the author the first black writer to ever win this award.
The series is filming in and around South London in 2023 and is likely to be released on Channel 4 in 2024.
Michelle Greenidge is known for starring in hit shows such as Afterlife, It's A Sin and I May Destroy You and has recently been cast in the new series of Doctor Who, due for release in late 2023. She is available for voiceovers from Anthea Represents. Click her image for her profile page and voiceover showreel.
