She broke out big in the cinema with Gone Girl, but more recently, Carrie Coon has been making a real impression on TV with shows such as The Leftovers and the third season of Fargo. She's heading back to the big screen for Steve McQueen's film version of Widows.

McQueen has been working with (coincidentally) Gone Girl's Gillian Flynn to adapt Lynda La Plante’s 1983 crime miniseries. The original series – two more followed in 1985 and then 2002 – followed the story of women who all lose their criminal husbands when the men die in the middle of robbing a security van that catches fire.

Not content with mourning, the widows decide to finish the job for themselves and get the loot. Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Daniel Kaluuya and Andre Holland are all aboard, and Coon is playing a widow who refuses to join Davis' crew. We don't see that ending up well for her...

Outside of that job, Coon is currently busy working on Steven Spielberg's Pentagon Papers drama The Papers and will also be seen in sci-fi pic Kin.
