Joanne Froggatt Talks About Her Role Angela Black
All six episodes of the limited series ANGELA BLACK will drop exclusively on Spectrum (available on-demand, free, and without ads) on February 7.
Angela’s life appears idyllic: a lovely house in suburban London, days working volunteer shifts at a dog shelter, two beautiful sons, and a charming, hard-working husband – Olivier. However, beneath this façade of charmed domesticity, Angela is a victim of domestic violence. Olivier is controlling and brutal, but Angela loves him and he’s the father of her children. She covers her bruises with make-up and fabricates lies to explain away her missing teeth. Until, one day, Angela is approached by Ed – a Private Investigator – and he smashes her already strained domestic life to pieces. Ed reveals Olivier’s deepest secrets to Angela, and she is faced with horrifying truths about her husband and his betrayals being forced to take matters into her own hands.
Cast: Golden Globe® and BIFA-award winner and three times Emmy® nominated Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) takes on the role of Angela, a suburban housewife whose seemingly perfect life isn’t all it appears to be. The ensemble cast also includes Michiel Huisman (The Flight Attendant) in the role of Angela’s husband Olivier and BIFA®-award-winner Samuel Adewunmi (The Last Tree) who stars as an enigmatic stranger, Ed.
