Following her fall 2012 casting in the all-woman UK indie comedy feature, Powder Room, from commercial director  M.J. Delane (feature debut), Brit actress Lashana Lynch has joined that cast of BBC One’s upcoming 2-part romantic drama The 7.39.

Lynch joins David Morrissey (The Governor in The Walking Dead), Sheridan Smith, Olivia Colman and Sean Maguire in a series scripted by award-winning writer David Nicholls, and John Alexander directing.

The 7.39 follows Sally and Carl, who begin a conversation after fighting for a seat on their morning commute on the train, and suddenly their daily rides into work become a lot more interesting.

Relatively happy in their home lives, they are, however, drawn to each other, and as their friendship grows to flirtation they refuse to admit – to each other or themselves – that a line might be crossed. The consequences of discovery will be life-changing, catastrophic perhaps, and yet they can’t help falling in love.

The serial is produced by NBCUniversal’s Carnival Films (the production company behind Downton Abbey) with Sally Woodward Gentle and Polly Hill serving as executive producers.

Lynch, whose role in the series isn't public yet, also co-stars with Sheridan Smith in Powder Room, which centers on a woman whose life is turned upside down during a big night out with her old college friends.

We last saw Lynch in  Noel Clarke's sports drama Fast Girls.
