Edward Bluemel Joins Netflix Agatha Christie Show Seven Dials Mystery

Edward Bluemel, the “Killing Eve” and “Sex Education” star most recently seen as the brooding love interest in Amazon’s alt-history fantasy “My Lady Jane,” has joined the cast of Netflix‘s upcoming Agatha Christie series “The Seven Dials Mystery.”

Bluemel joins “How to Have Sex” breakout Mia McKenna-Bruce, who Variety announced last month would lead the whodunnit, written by “Broadchurch” creator and former “Doctor Who” showrunner Chris Chibnall.

Set in 1925, “The Seven Dials Mystery” follows a lavish country house party where a practical joke appears to have gone murderously wrong. It’s down to the fizzingly inquisitive Lady Eileen “Bundle” Brent (McKenna-Bruce) to unravel a chilling plot that will change her life, cracking wide open the country house mystery. Bluemel will play Jimmy Thesiger, a charming and witty man who becomes Bundle’s ally in the murder investigation. Helena Bonham Carter and Martin Freeman will also star.

The series is executive produced by “The Crown’s” Suzanne Mackie under her Orchid Pictures banner and Chris Sussman (“Good Omens”). Chris Sweeney (“The Tourist,” “Back to Life”) will direct and also exec produce.

Chibnall will executive produce the show through his company Imaginary Friends, and James Prichard of Agatha Christie Limited is also an executive producer on the series. Andy Stebbing is on board as an executive producer and Joanna Crow will be series producer. “The Seven Dials Mystery” marks the first announced series from Orchid, which Mackie set up in 2020 under a deal with Netflix after a 12-year stint at “The Crown” producer Left Bank Pictures. 

Alongside “The Seven Dials Mystery,” Bluemel also has a lead role in Hulu’s upcoming limited series “Washington Black” alongside Sterling K. Brown, and will be seen in the BBC drama “We Might Regret This.” He is repped by Sugar23, Hamilton Hodell, Sloane Offer Weber & Dern and Viewpoint.
