Nicole Kidman to star in Cecelia Ahern adaption

The star showed off her pixie cut while on set.

Oscar winning actress Nicole Kidman is currently filming Roar, the Apple TV+ adaption of Cecelia Ahern's short story collection.


The Big Little Lies star is on set in Australia as filming commences on the eight-episode series.

Kidman gave her social media followers a glimpse into set-life by sharing a photo on Instagram.

In it, the Australian actress is sporting a blonde pixie cut and a woolly jumper.

Nicole is not the only big name involved in the adaption. She'll be joined by Mad Men's Alison Brie, Nurse Jackie's Merritt Wever and Widows' Cynthia Erivo.


Irish author Ahern published Roar in 2018. The collection features 30 feminist short stories with a different heroine in each tale.

The TV adaption has been in the works for several years now, but a release date is yet to be announced.


To this day, Ahern remains one of Ireland's bestselling female authors. Her novels have sold over 25 million copies worldwide.

Roar is her third publication to get a screen adaption.

In 2007, director Richard LaGravenese turned her novel P.S. I Love You into a hugely successful blockbuster film. The movie starred big Hollywood names, including Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler and Lisa Kurdow.

Subsequently, the 2014 romantic comedy Love, Rosie, was based off her 2004 novel, Where Rainbows End, and starred Lily Collins and Sam Claffin.
