Sally Ann Matthews films the role of Siobhan in My Man.

Following on from BBC Three’s award-winning My Murder in 2012, My Man is a factual drama based on the murder of a 21-year-old woman by her boyfriend. The film explores domestic abuse within teenage and young people’s relationships in line with recent research that reflects an increase in the reporting of domestic abuse in this age group.

Casey met and fell in love with her partner when she was 17 years old. Her murder was brutal – with her two year old daughter found next to her as she was dying – but away from the violence, the focus of this film will be the psychology and emotional complications that kept both of them locked in this destructive and tragic relationship. It’s the subtle power dynamics and manipulations that many of the audience might recognise and rationalise in their own relationships that the film interrogates. This began as a love story, how did it turn so sour?

My Man is a BBC In-house production. Executive produced by Darren Kemp, produced by Pier Wilkie and directed by Bruce Goodison.
