The Intriguing Storyline

The storyline of this upcoming miniseries is set in 2014 Hong Kong, where Kidman’s character, Margaret, is just one of the captivating leads.

The miniseries also features talented young actors Tiana Gowen, Bodhi del Rosario, and Connor James Gillman, who play Margaret and Clarke’s children.

Based on a Best-Selling Novel

This six-episode miniseries is based on the best-selling novel The Expatriates by Janice Y. K. Lee. After being greenlit by Amazon Studios in 2018, the adaptation has been in development, with celebrated filmmaker Lulu Wang attached as the director. Wang, known for her critically acclaimed movie The Farewell, joined the project in late 2019. On working with Kidman and the rest of the team, Wang expressed her gratitude for their support, saying, “It was a great learning experience for all of us.”

Overcoming Challenges

Filming for Expats faced unprecedented challenges due to the impact of COVID-19 outbreaks and other obstacles, including concerns around Kidman’s involvement. However, Wang spoke highly of her working relationship with the talented actress. In an interview with Collider, Wang revealed, “I think that it wouldn’t have been made without her, and that is the fact. It was incredible that [Kidman] believed in my vision enough to help ensure I was supported.”
