Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51, starred in the series “The Darling Buds of May” (“The dear buds of May”, in Spanish) alongside David Jason and Pam Ferris since 1991 to 1993.
Sabrina Bartlett also joins the show alongside the rising star Tok Stephen, who has appeared in Grantchester y Holby City.
Tok will play the accountant Cedric ‘Charley’ Charlton, who comes to Kent from the city to investigate the family’s suspicious tax affairs, but ends up drawn to Mariette and the country lifestyle.
Sabrina, who plays the role of Siena Rosso in Bridgerton, said of her new role:
“I am VERY VERY excited to take on the role of Mariette Larkin in this new adaptation of the HE Bates novels.
“I can’t wait to bring these moving stories to life alongside such a wonderful team. It’s the perfect dose of escapism that we all need right now.”
Tok added, “I am delighted to be chosen to play Charley on such a beloved and wonderful show.
“I can’t wait to work alongside Joanna, Bradley, and Sabrina. I’m incredibly excited. I hope we can impress fans of the original novels with our version.”
