Kiss Me First cast and spoilers from Channel 4’s innovative new series

Kiss Me First continues tonight on Channel 4 but what’s it all about and who’s on the cast?

Kiss Me First is an innovative thriller from Bryan Elsley (Skins, Dates) which combines live action with stunning state-of-the-art computer-generated virtual world sequences in a TV drama first.

Based on Lottie Moggach’s debut novel, Kiss Me First moves between the real and virtual animated worlds.

When Leila (Tallulah Haddon, Taboo, The Living and the Dead) stumbles across Red Pill, a secret paradise, hidden on the edges of her favourite game, she meets Tess (Simona Brown, The Night Manager). Tess is everything that Leila is not: hedonistic, impulsive and insatiable.

So when Tess turns up in Leila’s real life uninvited, Leila’s world is forever changed. But then a member of the group mysteriously disappears and Leila begins to suspect that maybe the hidden sanctuary isn’t the digital Eden its creator Adrian claims it to be. Now, Leila’s real journey begins.
