Sophie Turner to play Joan Hannington in ITV drama, Joan

In the ITVX drama Joan, based on the biography of the most notorious jewel thief in the UK, Sophie Turner plays Joan Hannington. The drama was created by screenwriter Anna Symon, produced by Snowed-in Productions, and directed by Richard Laxton.

Set in the fun, brash, aspirational world of 1980s London, the drama is a powerful female story that will premiere on the channel's new, free streaming service ITVX.

Sophie Turner:
"I'm so excited to be bringing Joan Hannington's fascinating life story to screen in Joan. She is one of the most notorious figures in the criminal underworld of London, earning her the nickname "The Godmother." A woman who goes between her thriving and daring career as a jewel thief, all whilst trying to get her daughter back from social services, we see a mother in despair swept up in the exhilarating world of crime."

Joan is the true story of her meteoric rise from petty offender to highly talented diamond thief and criminal mastermind. Anna met with Joan Hannington whilst writing the series, and the drama will be filmed in London in the spring of 2023.
