Sadie Soverall (Upper Sixth) has officially been announced as a cast member in a new Netflix drama.

Fate: The Winx Saga is based on a popular Italian animated franchise called Winx Club, and will be a live action adaptation of the cartoon. The series is described as a “coming of age” journey, following five friends who attend a magical boarding school.

Sadie is following in well-trodden footsteps in her new Netflix career. Talluhah Haddon (OE 2014) starred in the ‘Bandersnatch’ episode of ‘Black Mirror’ in December 2018, and Emanuel’s own Mr Arnott has a role as a puppeteer in Netflix’s The Dark Crystal – the first full length feature film to star animatronic puppet creatures.

Filming for Fate: The Winx Saga has now begun in Ireland. Click here to find out more.
