A BEAUTIFUL, COMPELLING, HEARTBREAKING STORY!
3rd July 2022
“The Girl From Plainville” will premiere on 10th July on STARZPLAY.
Based on the definitive Esquire article by Jesse Barron, stars Elle Fanning as Michelle Carter and is inspired by the true story of her unprecedented ‘texting-suicide’ case.
The limited series explores Carter’s relationship with Conrad Roy III and the events that led to his death and, later, her conviction of involuntary manslaughter. Alongside Fanning, the series stars Chloë Sevigny as Lynn Roy, Colton Ryan (“Dear Evan Hansen”) as Conrad “Coco” Roy III.
CONRAD “COCO” ROY III is a sweet, caring young man grappling with anxiety and loneliness in a world he doesn’t feel he fits into. When he first meets Michelle Carter, he sees in her someone who understands his struggles and seems to see the real him. But his relationship with Michelle takes a dark turn as he sets his sights on ending his life.
Colton Ryan shares what it was like to play such a career defining character, his own personal journey to happiness and his bond with Elle!
