Moving On, new drama series for BBC One Daytime, attracts top talent – Joanne Froggatt

Joanne Froggatt is well known for various roles on television including Spooks: Code 9 and Life On Mars and can be currently seen playing Kate in the new BBC One series of Robin Hood.

In Butterfly Effect by Esther Wilson, Joanne plays Kellie – a social worker who gets involved in a gun incident with Sylvie (Lesley Sharp).

Speaking about her role, Joanne says: "I play a social worker who works at the same place as Sylvie – a working home for teenagers and young people. There's an incident with Sylvie which Kellie partly witnesses, and she is then forced to cover her own back."

Like co-star Lesley Sharp, Joanne was delighted with the script:

"I absolutely loved it and immediately thought it was a brilliant script. I think it's written in a really realistic way. There's nothing you feel like you should be saying that's not there. It's very cleverly done."

Joanne is a fan of new writing: "I think things like this are really fantastic – the writing was beautiful," she says. "I wish there were more things like this and more opportunities for new writers to get their things shown on screen as it's nice to do something a little bit different and try something new."

Butterfly Effect by Esther Wilson is episode five of Moving On, a new series of five unique contemporary dramas starring Shelia Hancock, Ian Hart, Richard Armitage and Lesley Sharp and executive produced by Jimmy McGovern (The Street) for BBC One Daytime.
