What makes Domino Day unique?

Domino Day is a supernatural drama and what make it unique is the witches - who they are, what kind of backgrounds they come from and where it’s set. When I first read the script, I was surprised as there were so many elements I’d never seen in a witchy drama before.

What was your first impression after reading the script?

I read the first three episodes and I thought it was fantastic as there was this unapologetic sexiness that was intertwined with fantasy drama. I thought it was very unique - the coven, Domino…they all have such individual stories and lives. I’ve never seen a show that treats witches in such a way.

What journey does your character go on?

Jules is the youngest in the coven and came in kind of against her wishes as her parents thought she was getting a bit too wild. She wanted to do her own thing, party, live her life but she gets put in this group of witches and has to work in this shop where there are all these rules about being in the coven and being a witch. She kind of just likes to use her powers for fun but she really gets put to the test in this show. We see her for who she truly is through the decisions she makes under pressure.

Do you relate to your character?

Jules is so opposite to me. Firstly, I don’t like to party. I don’t like to go out that much. I’m a bit of a hermit whereas she likes to dance until the sun comes up and drink a lot. Her clothing is so different as well. I think what I’ve most enjoyed about playing her is the different outfits I’ve gotten to wear. I’m usually more minimalist but her clothes are so loud.

What kind for relationships does she have with other characters in the series?

Jules has a bit of a love/hate relationship with Geri, which is fun to play. It’s also very charming. I think they’re just very different people. Jules is quite young, it’s just her mentality whereas Geri is a bit more of a rule follower so they clash a bit with that. Her relationship with Kat is different, she kind of seeks to gain her approval although she pretends she doesn’t really care.

What are you most looking forward to seeing finished?

I’m really excited to see the fight scenes, especially the ones with Siena playing Domino. Throughout the series she is 110% in her acting, so think it will be epic to see her fight scenes.

What would you like audiences to take away from the series?

I think embracing your roots, accepting good people and when good things happen, and not letting other people tell you how to live your life.

Why is Domino Day a must watch?

I think people should watch this show if they want to see something different. If you love fantasy, fashion and a good love story it’s definitely a must watch.


The series follows Domino Day (played by Siena Kelly), a young woman on all of the dating apps. But Domino isn’t swiping to find her soulmate – she’s swiping to hunt.

A young witch with extraordinary powers, Domino is desperately seeking a community who can help her understand who she is, but she doesn’t need to look far, as a coven of witches is already tracking her every move, convinced they have to stop her before her powers destroy everyone and everything around her.

When a dangerous figure from Domino’s past comes back to haunt her, will it be a fresh start for them all, or a final showdown?

Domino Day (6x45’) is created and written by Lauren Sequeira, with individual episodes written by Charlene James and Haleema Mirza, and is directed by Eva Sigurdardottir and Nadira Amrani, with Nick Pitt as series producer and Megan Ott as producer. Executive producers are Lauren Sequeira with Laurence Bowen, Chris Carey and Elinor Day for Dancing Ledge Productions, a Fremantle company, and Lucy Richer and Ayela Butt for the BBC.

Watch Domino Day on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer from Wednesday 31 January at 9pm.
