Who is in the cast of Everything I Know About Love?

Emma Appleton as Maggie

Maggie is Birdy’s messy best friend, and the series begins with the couple moving into a shared flat in London, along with Nell and Amara.

Inspired by Dolly Alderton herself, the character of Maggie gets caught up in a series of fun but chaotic riots.

Emma Appleton as Maggie

Appleton previously starred as Fay Brookstone on the drama series Clique and had a starring role as Feef Symonds on the spy series Traitors.

She also played the hapless Nancy Spungen in the punk biopic Pistol and appeared as Renfri in the first season of The Witcher.

Bel Powley as Birdy

Birdy is the more anxious and sane of the two, and has lived in what feels like an eternity in a perpetual singleton state.

But when Birdy gets a boyfriend, her and Maggie’s friendship is put to the test.

Bel Powley as Birdy

Powley may be recognizable to eagle-eyed viewers for one of her earliest roles – that of Daisy Millar on the CBBC series MI High.

Since then she has played Bianca in Benidorm, Holly Morten in crime series The Informer alongside Paddy Considine and Claire Conway in drama series The Morning Show.

Marli Siu as Nell

Nell is Maggie and Birdy’s roommate who seems to live their lives together – she’s a new teacher in a long-term relationship.

However, Nell is fed up with her relationship and is looking for an excuse to get out of it and move on with her life.

Siu starred as Echo on the online mystery drama Dixi but is perhaps more recognizable for her role as Kyra on the Anthony Horrowitz adaptation series Alex Rider.

She has also had roles in crime fantasy series The Irregulars and Scottish comedy show Still Game.

Amara is a real estate agent trying to fit into the world of London’s corporate elite.

She has a talent for dancing and regrets giving up her creative career to pursue ownership and continues to dream of becoming a successful dancer.
