The stand-out star of successful BBC comedy show Outnumbered will appear this autumn in the BBC's biopic of the life of Enid Blyton. Seven year old Ramona Marquez will play Imogen, one of Enid Blyton's daughters.
Acclaimed actress Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd) leads the cast in Enid Blyton (working title), a major one-off drama from Carnival Film & Television for BBC Four. Matthew Macfadyen and Denis Lawson also star.
Helena Bonham Carter says: "It's a long time since I have read such a well written script with as complex and fascinating a character as Enid. I hope I do her justice. And I hope I get to drink lashings of ginger beer."
One of the most recognised storytellers of all time, Enid Blyton's charming characters and classic tales have enchanted countless generations of children all over the world for almost 80 years.
