How to Watch 'Where the Crawdads Sing': Is the Daisy Edgar-Jones … – Collider

Have you heard the tall tales told about The Marsh Girl?
The murder-mystery Where the Crawdads Sing is set to hit theaters this summer, and fans of the book the film is based on are eagerly awaiting getting to see this story brought to life on the big screen. Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People) stars as Catherine "Kya" Clark, a young girl who grew up alone in the marshes of North Carolina after being abandoned by her family. Kya teaches herself to survive and makes a home for herself amongst the creatures of the marsh. The people in the nearby town of Barkley Cove shun Kya due to her wild upbringing and nickname her “The Marsh Girl”.
One person who does show her kindness is Tate Walker (Taylor John Smith), an old friend of one of Kya’s siblings. The two fall in love and begin a romantic relationship, but Kya is once again left feeling abandoned when Tate leaves her to attend college. Kya later enters a relationship with Barkley Cove's star quarterback, Chase Andrews (Harris Dickinson), but she ultimately calls it off when she finds out Chase’s promises to marry her were all a lie. While she is out of town, Chase is found dead at the bottom of a fire tower. Kya then finds herself at the center of a murder investigation in a town full of people that seem determined to pin the crime on her.
Where the Crawdads Sing is based on the book of the same name by Delia Owens. The novel is one of the best selling books of recent times with over 12 million copies sold since its release in 2018. The film is directed by Olivia Newman with a screenplay by Lucy Alibar (Beasts of the Southern Wild).

Big Little Lies (2017-2019): The Emmy-award-winning series Big Little Lies was the first TV venture for Hello Sunshine.
