How To Have Sex breakout star Mia McKenna Bruce has been announced as the lead of Netflix’s The Seven Dials Mystery. 

Last we heard of Chris Chibnall’s Agatha Christie adaptation, The Seven Dials Mystery, was in April when word reached the Film Stories news desk that the series was due to film this summer. Other details were scarce at the time, but we’ve now got an update for you on the casting of the Netflix series. 

Mia McKenna-Bruce has been attached as the series lead. She’ll be playing Bundle, who is described as “a young, determined sleuth” in the press release. 

“Chris Chibnall’s scripts are brilliant, and I am thrilled to be part of this new interpretation of the iconic Agatha Christie’s storytelling,” McKenna-Bruce said of her casting. You can also spy a first-look image of McKenna Bruce as Bundle at the top of this article. 

Joining McKenna-Bruce are Helena Bonham Carter as Lady Caterham and Martin Freeman as Battle. 

McKenna-Bruce recently picked up the EE Rising Star Award at the BAFTAs, thanks to her star-making turn in Molly Manning Walker’s How To Have Sex. The film also picked up the prestigious Un Certain Regard main prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Here’s a brief synopsis of The Seven Dial Mystery: England. 1925. At a lavish country house party, a practical joke appears to have gone horribly, murderously wrong. It will be up to the unlikeliest of sleuths – the fizzingly inquisitive Lady Eileen ‘Bundle’ Brent – to unravel a chilling plot that will change her life, cracking wide open the country house mystery.

Chibnall is penning the script for the series as well as executive producing. Chris Sweeney, known for his work in The Tourist, will direct the series. No word on how many episodes the series might consist of and Netflix hasn’t set a release window for it either, but we’ll make sure to keep you updated.
