I wasn’t thinking about a film or TV adaptation when I wrote After the Flood, so I didn’t have any actors or actresses in mind. But after it was optioned for a television series (with Chernin Entertainment, partnering with LuckyChap Entertainment, Margot Robbie’s production company), it’s been interesting to consider what actors/actresses could fit with different roles.
