The Crowded Room ‘is an anthology series that will explore inspirational stories of those who have struggled with mental illness and learned to live successfully with it’. 

The former Shameless actress wore her dark tresses in a half up half down style as the costume department accessorised the look with silver jewellery.

Slipping her feet into patent black shoes, she also carried a brown leather bag over her shoulder.

Tom Holland is set to portray Danny Sullivan, a character based on Milligan, who was the first individual to be acquitted of a crime due to multiple personality disorder.

Multiple Personality Disorder is a now defunct diagnosis currently known as dissociative identity disorder.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, those living with DID, a mental health condition, ‘have two or more separate identities.’

The identities each have their own ‘personal history, traits, likes and dislikes’ and ‘lead to gaps in memory and hallucinations (believing something is real when it isn’t).’

Milligan was arrested in the late 1970s for three rapes on the campus of Ohio State University.

His lawyers pleaded insanity, claiming that two of Milligan’s alternate personalities committed the crimes. 

The cast also includes Emmy Rossum, who will play Danny’s mother Candy, and Amanda Seyfried, who has been cast as ‘a clinical psychologist faced with the most challenging case of her career.’

Filming on the series began on March 31 with a release date yet to be confirmed.
