Derry Girl Louisa Harland will star in an upcoming Disney+ series, THE BALLAD OF RENEGADE NELL. Harland’s character “ends up on an extraordinary adventure after she is framed for murder – a twist of fate that has far bigger consequences than Nell could ever dream of,” the outlet states. The series follows Nell, an 18th century young woman, as she finds herself “unwittingly becoming the most famous highwaywoman in the country.”
The Irish actor’s performance as a sympathetic sex worker in GOOD LUCK TO YOU, LEO GRANDE this summer “has definitely opened up doors for me,” he said. Next up is the Apple TV+ series BAD SISTERS. McCormack grew up in Nenagh, in County Tipperary, the son of a white Irish mother and a Black American father he rarely saw. But his paternal grandfather, Percy Thomas, who runs a theater company in Maryland, helped fill that void.
