Her role is yet to be confirmed, but judging by the behind-the-scenes photo posted on Instagram, she’s set to stir up some trouble for the gang…
You might recognise her from J.K. Rowling’s crime drama series Strike, in which she plays Ciara Porter, or Jane Fairfax from the 2020 film Emma.
Portsoy, you've been amazing. Here's a message from our director Anthony Byrne: 'A huge thanks to the people who welcomed us & let us take over their town for a week. It's been an absolute joy. I can’t wait for you all to see what we've done.' 📷 Anthony Byrne #PeakyBlinders pic.twitter.com/ZY2UUY6N6T

Whilst little is known about the upcoming season of Peaky Blinders, we do know that it will be the last and that it will be wrapping up the story of the Shelby family through a feature film.
The producer behind the show shared, ‘I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie, that is what is going to happen.’. As for Tommy Shelby, he revealed, ‘I want to take him on that journey from the person we saw [in Season 1], to the person he will become in 1939.’

Meanwhile, filming for Season Six began last month and we can expect to see the new drama before late 2021 or at most, early 2022.
