Suranne Jones plays Becca
Who is Becca? Becca is Rosaline's sister and daughter to Mary and Richard. She is married with two daughters and leads a busy life as a working mum.
Jones previously revealed that she drew on her own experiences to help craft the narrative, saying: "I think it's no secret that I've lost both my parents. So obviously, I know grief. And that was a huge part of our conversations, 'What that is to someone'. It's either going to come or people have experienced it, and I think what this show does is it doesn't deal with it quickly, it deals with it over three episodes."
