The first official pictures of Fearless have been revealed and show Helen in the lead role as Emma Banville, a human rights lawyer who has built a reputation for defending lost causes.
In the new thriller, Banville sets out to prove the innocence of convicted murderer Kevin Russell, who maintains he didn’t kill schoolgirl Linda Sims 14 years earlier.
Convinced that Russell has been wronged, the lawyer begins to search for the truth about Linda’s death.
As she learns more about the case, she uncovers involvement from powerful figures in the police and intelligence services who try to hinder her investigation.
“When l was at drama school l was inspired by Prime Suspect, watching as Britain led the way in creating strong female characters to lead their dramas” said Helen of the new show.
