Anya Taylor-Joy stars in BBC One's The Miniaturist

Anya Taylor-Joy, who recently starred in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, takes on the role of eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman, who leaves her home in the country to begin her new life as the wife of a wealthy merchant Johannes Brandt (Alex Hassell – Anonymous, Cold Mountain) in Amsterdam.

However she is met by the commanding and cold Marin (Romola Garai – Atonement), Johannes sister, and she rapidly realises that things are not as they seem in the Brandt household.
