Hollywood’s leading lady Nicole Kidman celebrated World Book Day with her fans by sharing some of her favourite literature and revealed she’s a massive fan of Irish author Cecelia Ahern. Recommending her novel Roar, which was just adapted in to a miniseries starring Nicole.
Taking to Instagram the actress explained in a video to her eight million followers. “So this is my book, that I recommend, that we just made into a series called Roar,” she said while showing of her signed edition of the novel.
Captioning the post; “Celebrating World Book Day with our amazing author of Roar, Cecelia Ahern, Our series from @BlossomFilms is now streaming on Apple TV Plus xx”
Cecelia clearly appreciated the shoutout, as she reshared the post on her own social media, and sent Nicole love in the comments section of the original post.
The book is an anthology of 30 short stories, which she has described as a “fiercely feminist story collection” and was released back in 2018.
The series, which is produced by the people behind Glow and Orange is the New Black, is spread out over eight episodes at thirty minutes each and is described by creators as ”A story for every woman. A story for every moment.”
It was announced last year that Nicole was on board for the series, as well as Cynthia Erivo, Merritt Wever and Alison Brie. Kidman’s production company, Blossom Films, is also involved in the show’s production.
Of course we are already familiar with Cecelia’s work making the transition from page to screen. Her book Where Rainbow’s End, was adapted into a film called Love, Rosie.
Perhaps more famously, her book P.S I Love You also made it to the big screen back in 2007.
The show was released on Apple TV on the 15th of April this year.
