BRAVE NEW WORLD Casts Jessica Brown Findlay as Lenina

Brave New World was written by Aldous Huxley and is one of those books you have to read in high school. If you’re like me, you even had to read it twice. I personally was not a fan of the book, but many disagree with me, and it’s being adapted into a series for USA Network and possibly the NBCU streaming platform.

The latest casting has been announced as Jessica Brown Findlay will play Lenina Crowne. Lenina is “a Beta Plus Hatchery worker, who has begun to question her position within the strict social strata of the New World.”

As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx (Lloyd) and Lenina Crowne (Brown Findlay) have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard (Lloyd) and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage (Ehrenreich), who escapes with them back to New London.

The arrival of John, a subversive outsider, in the New World, threatens to disrupt the stability of New London’s utopian society.

Findlay joins Alden Ehrenreich and Harry Lloid in the series which is written by Grant Morrison, Brian Taylor, and David Wiener. Did you enjoy the book? Are you excited for the show?
