A Good Girl's Guide to Murder has landed on BBC, and it's already received rave reviews. Led by Wednesday star Emma Myers, the series follows Pip Fitz-Amobi – a teen detective determined to solve the disappearance of 17-year-old, Andie Bell. 

"Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend Sal Singh. Case closed. The police know he did it, everyone in town knows he did it. But smart and single minded Pip Fitz-Amobi isn't so sure and she's determined to prove it," teases the synopsis.

"If Sal Singh isn't a murderer and the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth?"

Hailed for her performance as Pip, everyone's talking about Emma Myers right now, but what do we know about the actress? From her past roles to her future projects and personal life, we've got the lowdown. 

Personal life

Born on April 2, 2002, in Orlando, Florida, Emma grew up with her parents, Nicole and Jeremy, and sisters, Isabel and Olivia. She was part of a homeschool co-op and has often spoken about feeling like an "outsider". 

"I didn't have a lot of social skills growing up," she told Teen Vogue. "And being a nerd, or whatever, pushed me further out."

Emma was interested in acting from an early age, but it was only after she turned 16 that she realised the world of Film and TV was for her. "It's been quite the journey since," she explained to Grazia

"I would love to do more films — especially fantasy ones. I would love to do something with Oscar Isaac. He's so incredible and talented. If I could act with him, that would be a dream role. I'd also love to do a Christopher Nolan film."

"It was a good four months of auditioning. You'd audition, and then it would be silent, then you'd audition again, and it would be silent again," the actress recalled to 1883 magazine. 

"You'd go in for a callback, and then more silence. It was a lot of waiting and a lot of hoping. It was a long four-month process, but it was totally worth it."
