The Enfield Haunting

Olivier Award® winning young actress Eleanor Worthington-Cox stars alongside Timothy Spall, Juliet Stevenson, and Matthew Macfadyen in The Enfield Haunting.

13 year old Eleanor (represented by Curtis Brown) plays the lead role of Janet Hodgson, the youngest daughter of a single mother played by Rosie Cavaliero, who were terrorised by a malevolent unseen force in their home for over two years.  The Enfield Haunting is a three-part dramatisation of the terrifying and bizarre events that took place at an ordinary house in Enfield during the autumn of 1977.

Eleanor, from Formby,  Merseyside, shot to fame in 2012 when she became the youngest ever recipient of the Laurence Olivier Award® for her shared role of Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre in London. She played the young Aurora in Maleficient, and can currently be seen in Channel 4's Cucumber.  She will also be seen in CBBC's Hetty Feather and playing Blousey Brown in Bugsy Malone at the Lyric, Hammersmith.

Eleanor commented: “Working on The Enfield Haunting has been an amazing experience. The role has been both challenging and rewarding. I’ve got to work with so many fantastic actors like Timothy, Matthew, Juliet and Rosie and I’ve worked with an amazing production team. I can’t wait for it to be on Sky Living in the spring.”

16 year old Fern Deacon (represented by Sylvia Young Agency) plays Janet's older sister Margaret, and ten year old  Elliot Kerley, from Buckinghamshire, who goes to Jackie Palmer Stage School, her younger brother. Both Fern and Elliot were in previous spooky drama The Secret of Crickley Hall.

The Enfield Haunting is directed by Kristoffer Nyholm (The Killing) and will premiere in Spring 2015 on Sky Living.
