Holly Jackson says: “I am beyond thrilled to finally introduce Anna and Gary as Pip’s parents, Leanne and Victor, and Mathew Baynton as Elliot Ward. Never in my wildest dreams did I think we’d have such an incredible cast and yet – at the same time – it always had to be them, because they are perfect for these characters.”

“I am also so excited to welcome Henry Ashton into the A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder family as Max Hastings,’ continues Jackson. “Henry’s was the first audition I ever saw in the casting process, and it blew me away. In fact, they all did. It truly felt like watching the books come to life. We had so much fun making this TV show and I cannot wait to see it all come together – and to your TV screens!”
Alongside Emma Myers and Zain Iqbal, previously announced cast members also include rising stars Asha Banks (The Magic Flute) as Cara, Yali Topol Margalith (The Tattoist of Auschwitz) as Lauren, Jude Collie (Here We Go) as Connor and Raiko Gohara (Get Lost) as Zach.
