Fortunately, a take on the novel was helmed by Olivia Newman, produced by Reece Witherspoon and hit theaters this July.

Daisy Edgar-Jones stars as Catherine “Kya” Clark, a young girl growing up in a North Carolina marsh without her family. Things take a turn when she meets the popular Chase Andrews, who displays an interest and romance soon ensues. However, things go south and they end things, only for him to turn up dead shortly after.

A murder investigation is launched and she finds herself the prime suspect.

It’s a brilliantly performed piece of drama and Daisy Edgar-Jones is joined by some phenomenal talent. Speaking of which, who plays Tate in Where the Crawdads Sing?

‘I was just excited to jump into it’

Taylor John Smith recently sat down for a conversation with Who What Wear and opened up about telling his family he got the gig:

“I remember calling my sisters and telling them that I had gotten [the part], and the response was immediate… they were like, ‘Shut up! Tate or Chase, who are you playing?’ They have never cared about anything I’ve done before, and I told them Tate, and they were like, ‘Oh, thank god’ and hopped off the phone.”

He added: “That was all they needed to know… And then I got to hear everyone else’s stories about when they read it and what they were going through when they read it, especially during COVID because of all the isolation aspects of it. … It connected a lot of people. I was just excited to jump into it and be a part of it.”
