Estella is the love interest and emotional torturer of the orphan Pip, who, as already announced, is to be played by young War Horse star Jeremy Irvine.
Holly (represented by Troika) recently starred as Lucrezia Borgia in Neil Jordan’s TV series The Borgias. She has also had roles in Cary Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre and in Bel Ami opposite Robert Pattinson.
Producer Elizabeth Karlsen of Number 9 Films commented "She is just an incredibly fine actor and has the beauty that is needed for Estella as well as an extraordinary technical ability."
Helena Barlow (represented by United Agents) who played Rose Weasley in the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows epilogue, plays the young Estella.
Shooting on Great Expectations is due to begin on October 10 in and around the London area, ready for a 2012 release to celebrate Dickens’ bicentenary.
A BBC miniseries of the same novel is also planned, with Douglas Booth set for the role of Pip, Izzy Meikle-Small as the younger Estella and Ray Winstone as Magwitch.
