Cast of Alias Grace join Margaret Atwood on TIFF red carpet

Sarah Polley, Margaret Atwood and Sarah GadonThe stars of the show Alias Grace graced the TIFF red carpet for the primetime world premiere of the series.

Based on the Giller Prize-winning 1996 book by famous Canadian author Margaret Atwood, the show follows the true story of Irish immigrant and housemaid Grace Marks (played by Toronto's own Sarah Gadon) who is accused of killing her employer Thomas Kinnear (Paul Gross).

She denies the charges, saying she has no memory of the murder, but is imprisoned due to the evidence against her.

A decade later, Doctor Simon Jordan (Edward Holcroft) attempts to help Grace recall her past in the hopes of remembering what really happened.

The red carpet event for the series saw stars Sarah Gadon, Edward Holcroft, Rebecca Liddiard and Kerr Logan join the source material's author, Margaret Atwood, for a series of photos.

The show's creator, Sarah Polley, also hit up the event with her cast.
