Myfanwy and Eliza in The Rook
The Rook is an American television series based on the novel of the same name by Daniel O’Malley, and originally adapted by Stephenie Meyer. It premiered on Starz on June 30, 2019. It tells the story of Myfanwy Thomas who finds herself at Millennium Bridge in London surrounded by dead bodies with no memory of how she came to be there. She soon discovers that she is an agent with supernatural abilities in a British secret service called the Checquy. Eliza Gestalt worked as a field agent for 16 years and was very successful. She is able to coordinate the activities of its four bodies very efficiently, much more so than any multi-person team. Gestalt’s ability to stay “linked” does not appear to be affected by distance. The two Rooks, Myfanwy and Gestalt, have meetings several times a week and work together closely. Myfanwy and Eliza are portrayed by Emma Greenwell and Catherine Steadman.
