'Euphoria' Star Jacob Elordi Is Making His Return to the Screen
Here’s what we know about the actor’s newest TV series.
Jacob Elordi has reportedly signed on to lead an all-new Sony limited series, The Narrow Road to the Deep North.
According to Variety, the Euphoria star is set to play the series’ main character, Dorrigo Evans, who, according to the synopsis is “an army surgeon whose short but forbidden affair with Amy, the young wife of his uncle, sustains and haunts him through his darkest days as the reluctant leader of men held prisoner in a Thai-Burmese camp during WWII.”
The five-part series is based on Richard Flanagan’s acclaimed novel, and sees Jo Porter executive producing alongside Justin Kurzel. Elordi is set to return to his native Australia for filming in the coming months.
“It is thrilling to have Jacob Elordi join us on this project,” Porter shared in a statement. “The character of Dorrigo Evans requires a multi-layered actor who can bring strength, sensitivity and charisma to the role – qualities Jacob has in spades. Together with the creative powerhouses of Justin Kurzel and Shaun Grant, there couldn’t be a more exciting team to bring this important novel to life.”
“It is great for Shaun and I to be collaborating with a talented actor like Jacob. The Narrow Road to the Deep North needs a powerful leading presence, and it feels like this young actor and this extraordinary book have met each other at the right time,” Kurzel added.
Stay tuned for more details about the series coming soon.
