Not making heads or tails of the storyline as yet but one thing's for sure: Jamie Bell is terrifying." A third person tweeted: "Seriously, Jamie Bell is quite outstanding in #ShiningGirls.

Jamie opened up about the role to RadioTimes.com, and was full of praise for his co-star, Elisabeth. He said: "I find acting really hard, you can probably tell!
