Why did author Sarah Pinborough not want to get involved with Netflix’s Behind Her Eyes? 

Author Sarah Pinborough is the genius behind the plot of Behind Her Eyes which came out in 2017.

However, when it came to working on the Netflix series, she didn’t want a part in the process.

Speaking to, Pinborough explained: “I was at the meeting room but a few things changed after that and it wasn’t my job to be involved really.

“I went down on set and I did a little bit outside a cafe and everyone was great but you know if I was adapting someone else’s book, the last thing I would want would be the author telling me how to adapt it.”

Pinborough continued: “I think if you sell your book to a TV company, you’ve sold it.

“They can do whatever they want with it so no I wasn’t at all [involved with it].

“Even early on actually, they [the producers] asked me if I wanted to read the first episode when the first script was written and I said no.”

The writer added: “I just don’t think it’s the author’s place.”

While Pinborough didn’t want to get involved with creating the series, she was interested to hear what the stars of the show thought of the book.

She said: “I went to the read through and Eve [Hewson] was like, ‘I love the book, I love the book!’ and Robert Aramayo, he also loved it.

“They had all read it and I think they were all a bit like, ‘Oh my god, this is going to be mental.'”
