One Day: Here is a side-by-side comparison of the cast of the film and the TV series

Different talent, same feels x


One Day has enchanted people enough to make a movie and a TV show based on it with its emotional plot. The film came out in 2011, and the series landed on Netflix this month. Both obviously follow the story from David Nicholls’ 2009 novel of the same name but also have totally different casts for the same characters. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the TV and film cast of One Day.

Anne Hathaway has probably suffered enough with jokes about her Leeds accent in this 2011 movie and all the comparisons to Ambika Mod as the same character in the 2024 TV series.

Tilly

Jodie Whittaker must have screamed internally whenever she was on set listening to Anne do her northern twang, but Amber Grappy didn’t have the same problem as Tilly in the Netflix series.

Ian

Rafe Spall played the scorned comedian fiancee in the 2011 movie, while Jonny Weldon did in the 2024 TV series.

Alison

Dexter’s mum was brought to life by Patricia Clarkson in the 2011 movie and Essie Davis in the TV series 13 years later.

Stephen

Dexter’s dad was played by Ken Stott in the film, while Tim McInnerny did the honours in 2o24 on Netflix.

Sylvie

Romola Garari played the super posh first wife of Dexter, while Eleanor Tomlinson did the same role in the TV series.

Jasmine

Dexter and Sylvie’s only child was played by Emilia Jones in 2011, while Billie Gadson did the Netflix adaption.
