Synopsis

HIT AND MISS, created by Paul Abbott.

Chloe Sevigny plays Mia, a contract killer with a secret – she’s a transgender woman. Eddie, Mia’s handler and a well-known name in the criminal underworld, will be played by Peter Wight. Eddie took Mia under his wing and trained her into a first class assassin using his Chinese restaurant as a front for his illegal affairs. Mia’s life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from her ex, Wendy, who reveals that she’s dying from cancer and that Mia has fathered a son, 11-year-old Ryan… Exploring themes of family, sexual identity and killing,

Jonas Armstrong (Robin Hood, The Street) has been cast as landscape gardener Ben, who lives in the village and falls for Mia, unaware of her transgendered status.

Character Details of Ben by Jonas Armstrong

“I’m playing a character called Ben. No surname: just plain old simple Ben. We first meet him when Mia goes for a drink in the local pub when she arrives at the place where her children live. She meets these two lads who are Yorkshire-to-the-core, salt of the earth kind of fellas. One of them she doesn’t get on with very well – that’s John, Vincent Regan’s character. And then there’s myself. I take a bit of a shine to her and vice versa and that’s how their relationship starts. There’s an attraction.” (from Sky Atlantic website)
