Filming is shortly to wrap on six weeks of filming on Trap for Cinderella, a contemporary pyschological thriller, directed by Iain Softley (Inkheart). The film has been adapted from the novel by thriller writer Sébastien Japrisot, and has been filming on location in London and the south of France.
Two young rising British actors Tuppence Middleton and Alexandra Roach (soon to be seen as the young Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady) headline the cast as two childhood friends, Micky and Do, reunited after 10 years.
When a beach house on the French Riviera is gutted by fire, the two young women are trapped inside. One is rich and the other poor. Only one of them survives, injured beyond recognition and in a state of total amnesia. Who is she, the heiress or her penniless friend? A killer, or an intended victim?
Tuppence Middleton (represented by Conway Van Gelder) is originally from Bristol, and starred in the 2009 horror comedy Tormented. She followed it up with a role in last year’s Chatroom, and with an excellent performance in the British gem Skeletons, but this is easily her highest profile lead to date.
Alexandra Roach (represented by Troika) is a recent graduate of RADA, moving straight into TV roles in Candy Cabs and The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher, as well as a notable performance in Being Human. But her major break was being cast as the younger version of Meryl Streep‘s Margaret Thatcher in upcoming biopic The Iron Lady.
