Nichola Burley Cast in “Wuthering Heights”
Actress Nichola Burley has joined the cast of the upcoming version of “Wuthering Heights.” Andrea Arnold developed the new version of Emily Bronte’s classic tale, aiming to draw in a new, younger audience to the film.
Burley will be playing the third female role in the film with actress Kaya Scodelario already tapped to play the lead role of Cathy Earnshaw. No male actor has yet been tapped to play the lead role of the brooding Heathcliff. Ecosse Films will be in charge of production with filming set to begin on location in Yorkshire in October.
Burley won over critics with her recent performance in “Streetdance 3D,” helping her land the role in “Wuthering Heights.” She has also appeared in the low budget British film “Donkey Punch.”
