The first episode of the new dramatisation of Philip Pullman's beloved His Dark Materials aired on BBC One last night.
Dafne Keen, the star of X-Men spin-off Logan, has signed up for the lead role in the BBC’s big budget adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. Tom Hooper, helmsman of Oscar-winners including Les Misérables and The King’s Speech, is now on board to direct, according to Deadline, after working his scheduling around a forthcoming movie adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats. Keen will play Lyra Belacqua in the planned eight-part series, an orphaned girl brought up in an alternate version of Oxford, who comes into possession of a valuable instrument which can answer any question asked of it.
