Daisy Edgar-Jones: The film adaptations will always be different from the book


Daisy Edgar-Jones says the ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ adaptation was “always going to be different” from the book.

The 24-year-old actress stars in the upcoming drama – based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Delia Owens – as a young girl who gets caught up in a murder trial and says fans should ‘enjoy’ of the natural differences between the film and the novel.

She said: “I think the main thing [is] knowing that it will never be exactly as you imagined. It’s still going to be different from the book and accepting that and appreciating that difference and allowing you to kind of create another angle in a character for an audience.

Daisy is known to the public as Marianne Sheridan on ‘Normal People’ and went on to explain that she went through the same process while filming the hit drama series, which is itself an adaptation of Sally’s novel. Rooney.

She told Collider: “I think I did the same thing by taking parts of the book that I liked and putting them through my script, which I did for Marianne as well, and getting the right one. accent and things like that, but yeah, I think it was fun to get into a filmmaker’s version of the story and enjoy the collaborative aspect of it.

Meanwhile, the London-born star – who had to adopt a Northern Irish accent for her role in ‘Normal People’ – added that although she has a ‘knack’ for picking up various British accents, she would struggle with Welsh and Geordie.

She said: ‘I think I would find the Welsh or Geordie accent difficult. In the UK we have such a range of accents. You can walk 20 minutes up the road and have an entirely different dialect, so I might find Welsh quite difficult. It’s very melodious and I still can’t tune my ear to it. I’ll get there, I just need to practice!

“Where the Crawdads Sing” is scheduled for release on July 22.
