Sheridan Smith is battered and bruised in new survival thriller The Castaways
SHERIDAN Smith is battered and bruised after emerging from a crashed plane in the first look at her new survival thriller The Castaways.
Sheridan, 42, stars alongside Céline Buckens as sisters Lori and Erin Holme.
The siblings head off on a holiday of a lifetime to Fiji but after a massive fight, Erin doesn’t board the island-hopping flight to their resort, but Lori does.
However, the plane never arrives at its destination but no wreckage or survivors are found.
Then suddenly months later, Lori’s credit card is suddenly used in a corner shop in a remote village in Fiji, and on CCTV Erin recognises the plane’s pilot.
She sets out on a journey to find him and discover the mystery of what happened to her sister.

Jumping between the two sisters’ perspectives, Erin undertakes a perilous mission to uncover the truth of the crash, while Lori struggles for survival among her fellow castaways.
Each shocking twist helps to reveal the truth about what happened to Lori and the other passengers – a truth that someone on the island will kill to keep secret…
Sheridan said: “I’m so excited to be working with Céline Buckens and to be part of this amazing production bringing Lucy Clarke’s best selling novel to life.”
Céline added: “I’m really thrilled to bring Erin to life – she’s a firecracker and the scripts bring layers and darkness to such an arresting premise.
“I hope audiences will be as hooked watching it as I was reading it.”
The cast also includes Brendan Cowell as the plane’s pilot, Mike Brass, Lasarus Ratuere as Felix Vatabua, Dominic Tighe as Daniel Eldridge, and Charlotte Vega as Amber Gordon.
The Castaways will be available exclusively on Paramount+ later this year.
