She adds: ‘I married a time traveler. It’s complicated. ‘

The show is based on the 2003 Audrey Niffenegger novel, The Time Traveler’s Wife, a story about a married couple who deal with time travel in their romance.

The network described the upcoming series as an ‘intricate and magical love story,’ which has been adapted by executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock, Doctor Who) and director David Nutter (Game Of Thrones).

Leslie’s character Clare has been described as’ fiery, clever and unstoppable ‘with a longtime imaginary friend – who she will come to learn is James’ character Henry, a time traveler from her future.

The duo meet by chance in the library where he works, and as he boasts a ‘condition’ that causes him to fall ‘into the past or the future,’ at any given moment, he has no sense of who she is despite her knowing him very well.

The book was previously adapted into a movie starring Rachel and Eric, but after Moffat and Nutter got their hands on it it was given a straight-to-series order three years ago.

Moffat said to Deadline at the time: ‘All these years later, the chance to adapt the novel itself, is a dream come true.

‘The brave new world of long form television is now ready for this kind of depth and complexity … It’s a story of happy ever after – but not necessarily in that order.’
