Here’s a brief description of what Chloe is about, according to What To Watch: “Chloe was described as “a mystery about obsession, deceit, identity and grief”. It follows Becky (Erin Doherty) a young woman who still lives with her mum. She’s working as a temp and is living her life through the apparently flawless lives of social media influencers. In particular, Becky has become obsessed with an Instagram account owned by Chloe (Poppy Gilbert).
When her idol suddenly passes away, Becky adopts a new identity as “Sasha” so she can infiltrate Chloe’s circle of friends and uncover what happened to the social media starlet. As her “Sasha” alter-ego, Becky becomes a larger-than-life heroine living a far more exciting life than her actual one. Will Becky lose herself completely in the game she’s playing? Only time will tell…” The show features an impressive list of cast members, some of whom have appeared in notable projects in the past. If you want to learn more about the cast of Chloe, look no further. Here are the cast members of the BBC One and Amazon Prime Video psychological thriller series Chloe.
Erin Doherty plays Becky Green in the BBC One series Chloe. Doherty is an Irish actress best known for her role as Princess Anne in the Netflix drama The Crown. Doherty was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1995. She attended Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, where she studied acting. After graduation, she appeared in a number of stage productions, including a production of Junkyard. In 2016, she made her television debut in an episode of the drama Call the Midwife.
Doherty’s breakout role came in 2018 when she was cast as Princess Anne in The Crown. The Crown is a historical drama that chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Doherty has appeared in two seasons of the show. Outside of her work on The Crown, Doherty has also had roles in the film Firebrand, where she is set to portray the writer Anne Askew. In an interview with Town and Country Magazine, Doherty explained the research process involved in playing her character in Chloe:
“I’ll always get a fresh notebook and I’ll fill it with drawings, reflections, anything. But it always starts with a timeline of everything that’s happened to this person from the time they’re born through to the time that we meet them. I also knew that I had to get online, because I’m not social media tech-savvy and I just don’t quite engage with it that way. I basically had to download the [Instagram] app on my phone and every morning the first thing I would do is scroll, and every night it would be the last thing I did. It really affected my happiness.” She was also asked whether the characters she plays stick with her, to which she replied:
“They do stick with you. The way I like to work is to become completely submerged, and that takes its toll. With Becky, it took a long time to get out of her frame of mind. She has such a low sense of self-worth, and existing in the world, in that dark place, took a long time to come out of. I feel like that was a lesson for me: You have to choose wisely what you can give to a part, then on the flip side of that, what you can give to yourself in order to recover.”
