Ed Westwick Replaced by New Actor in Ordeal by Innocence

BBC Is Reshooting Ed Westwick's Role in Ordeal by Innocence With a New Actor

The BBC announced today that Ed Westwick's role in the upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie's Ordeal by Innocence has been recast despite the three-part special wrapping filming in September 2017.

In the wake of multiple sexual assault allegations lobbied at the British actor late last year, the BBC shelved their intended airing of the drama during the festive period. However, it seems the production will now see the light of day, with actor Christian Cooke taking over the part from Westwick and reshooting scenes with the ensemble cast including Matthew Goode, Bill Nighy, Ella Purnell, Anna Chancellor, and Alice Eve.

Also said to be shelved is the second season of the BBC 2 production White Gold, which featured Westwick in the starring role.
