Rachel donned a semi-sheer black blouse with a buttoned-up collar, tucked into midnight blue silk pyjama-style flares.

She clicked along the road in black killer heels, and swept through the streets in a taupe trench coat.

Rachel wore her mahogany locks loosely around her features, which were perfectly made-up in creamy tones with a hint of blusher and a rosy pop to her lips.

She swung a tie-dye black, blue and pink purse to complete her character’s cooperate-meets-glam look.

Rachel portrays the twin sisters, originally played as men by Jeremy Irons in the movie version from the 80s.

The twins share everything in their lives – from drugs to romances to a desire to ‘push the boundaries on medical ethics in an effort to challenge antiquated practices and bring women’s healthcare to the forefront’.

Michael Chernus is starring opposite as Tom, a scientist, who collaborates with one of the tiwns, Elliot, on a daring medical feat. 

‘As one of today’s most accomplished and versatile actresses, Rachel Weisz will captivate the Amazon Prime Video global audience with her take on these two ruthless, twisted characters,’ Albert Cheng, COO and co-head of television for Amazon Studios said of the casting. 

‘This update to Dead Ringers explores the darker side of medicine, obsession, and the human condition, making it a compelling addition to our slate of Amazon Original series.’

Rachel – who is married to James Bond frontman Daniel Craig – devised the idea for a new take on Dead Ringers, and is collaborating with Alice Birch, who worked on Normal People for BBC Three, on the project.  

Rachel gushed: ‘I am so lucky to have such brilliant partners in Annapurna and Amazon Studios, and I’m thrilled to be collaborating with the exceptionally talented Alice Birch!

‘I can’t wait to go on this journey with all of them!’

Rachel is typically a movie actress, and has never acted in a regular television role before.

She is known for films such as The Mummy, which shot her to fame in the 1990s, as well as The Constant Gardner, for which she won the Academy Award for best supporting actress in 2005.

More recently she has been seen in My Cousin Rachel and earned another Oscar nomination for The Favourite.
