Lambs of God: the dark gothic Foxtel original series in 2019

Lambs of God: the dark gothic Foxtel original series coming in 2019 
FOXTEL HAS ANNOUNCED its next landmark event drama series commission, Lambs of God, which will premiere in 2019.

Lambs of God is a dark, gothic tale about three nuns, each a generation apart, living in an isolated convent by the coast, and an unwelcome visitor who enters their lives and changes their world forever. It has commenced production at Fox Studios Australia.

The nuns, who live in solitude from the rest of the world on a remote and rugged island, have their lives turned upside down when an ambitious young priest, Father Ignatius, accidentally stumbles across the three Sisters as he arrives on a mission from the Church.

Based on the captivating Australian novel Lambs of God by Marele Day, the twisted and macabre tale will be brought to life on screen by an international all-star cast, led by Emmy Award-winning actress Ann Dowd (The Handmaids Tale, The Leftovers).

She will be joined by Australian stage and screen star Essie Davis  (Game of Thrones, The Slap, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, Babadook, and the upcoming The True History of The Kelly Gang), and UK actress, Jessica Barden (The End Of The F*****World, The Lobster) who, as the three Sisters of St Agnes, must defend their lives, existence and beliefs when the handsome priest, played by actor Sam Reid (The Railway Main, Belle, Anonymous) attempts to sell their dilapidated monastery. What unfolds is an epic and fantastical tale of faith, love and redemption.

Award-winning stars

Dowd admits she leans towards portraying people on the margins, which puts Lambs of God firmly in her wheelhouse.

“There are so many fantastic roles, but the ones that have always drawn me to them are the loners who, for whatever reason, never quite fit in and knew it and had to find their own way.” 

The American actress, who was taught by nuns as a child and speaks glowingly of their “devotion to making you the best person you can be”, is in the midst of a career boom, having nabbed a Primetime Emmy in 2017.

“It never occurred to me that something that gave you such joy could also be your life’s work,” she says. “I was so grateful to win an Emmy.”

Dowd's award-winning co-star Davis is one of the country’s finest actresses, having been awarded the UK’s top theatre prize – an Olivier – for her performance in A Streetcar Named Desire in 2003.

"I like to play roles that are very different from each other," says Davis, a fact evidenced by the various personas she’s portrayed in her career so far.

“A lot of people don’t realise that I’m the same person who has played all these parts.” 

One thing that does frequently connect her various alter egos is their resilience – "I've been fortunate to have the opportunities to have played many strong women” – and no doubt that will become apparent in Lambs of God as each sister will need to confront what this intruder represents.

It already looks like Lambs of God will follow Big Little Lies as being another smash-hit female-led series.
