Daisy Edgar-Jones has confirmed filming on Where the Crawdads Sing has officially wrapped.

The Normal People star posted images of the film's location in North Carolina, and told her followers that she can't wait for fans to "see Kya's marsh in all its glory."

"Where the crawdudes be diddle daddling," the actress captioned her pictures. "What a wonderful few months it has been! I can't wait for you to see Kya’s marsh in all its glory and thank you to the Crawdads team for working so hard to bring this beautiful story to life. That's a heckin wrap!!! See you way out yonder."

The photos featured masked-up members of the cast and crew as they filmed in the beautiful surroundings of North Carolina's marshlands.

The hugely-anticipated film is adapted from the best-selling debut novel by Delia Owens, which follows the survival of resilient protagonist Kya (Edgar-Jones), a reclusive girl who adapts to life on her own on the North Carolina coast after she's abandoned by her family.

The story begins in the '50s with Kya as a young girl, and continues into the late 1960s as she transitions into young adulthood and becomes a prominent writer and illustrator of undiscovered local flora and fauna in the marshes. But her idyl is suddenly compromised when she becomes embroiled in the murder of a local man.

The movie is being produced by Reese Witherspoon's production company, Hello Sunshine. Speaking about the novel, Witherspoon said: "I can't express how much I love this book! I didn't want this story to end."

Where the Crawdads Sing is set for release in June 2022.
