Crownies’s Indiana Evans to join Secrets & Lies.Australian actress Indiana Evans is joining Hollywood stars Ryan Phillippe and Juliette Lewis in the American remake of the Channel Ten drama series Secrets & Lies.
Evans is best known to Australian audiences for roles in Home and Away and the teen series H20: Just Add Water.
Since relocating to the US she has also starred in the 2012 remake of the classic The Blue Lagoon, with another Australian, actor Brenton Thwaites.
The original version of Secrets & Lies was produced by Brisbane-based production company Hoodlum for the Ten Network. It stars Martin Henderson and airs in Australia in March.
In the US version, Phillippe will play Henderson’s character Ben Gundelach, a man who discovers the body of a young boy and becomes a suspect in the subsequent murder investigation.
Cape Fear and August: Osage County star Juliette Lewis will play the lead investigator, Andrea Cornell.
Evans will play Natalie, the daughter of Ben and Christy (KaDee Strickland).
Secrets & Lies is one of two projects Hoodlum has sold into the US market; the other is the ABC2 comedy The Strange Calls.
The US adaptation of Secrets & Lies is being co-produced by Hoodlum, with the show’s Australian producers Tracey Robertson and Nathan Mayfield serving as co-executive producers.
Robertson and Mayfield have suggested that the two series, though identical, could have different endings.
The US series is currently being filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina.
