Peaky Blinders season 6 has a new leading lady – and Tommy Shelby better watch out.

Amber Anderson, who played Jane Fairfax in last year’s film adaptation of Emma, has been cast in a mystery role for the final season of the Shelby drama.

Confirming the news on Instagram, the actress shared a photo in front of the camera on set, with a cigarette in her hand as she stares down whoever she’s talking to.

Alongside the snap, she wrote: ‘Well, blimey. Beyond thrilled to announce that I will be in the final season of [Peaky Blinders].

‘We are already filming and it is going to be epic! Thank you [Anthony Byrne] & [Shaheen Baig, Casting]. Love you long time.’

Anthony, who directs the Birmingham mobster series, then reposted the photo and added: ‘The hugely talented [Amber] has joined us.’

It’s currently not been confirmed who Amber will be playing, and what her connection to the Shelby family will be.

However, last year writer Steven Knight teased that the upcoming episodes will have a female character that will ‘give Tommy a run for his money’.

‘She challenges him in a different way basically. She’s certainly not a protagonist and I don’t know if she’s an antagonist,’ he told Digital Spy.

‘It’s similar to Mosley… she has a similar ideology, and that’s challenging for any character, like I’ve said before… he or she, they don’t have guns or a gang, but they have an ideology that’s like a virus and it’s more dangerous than anything.

‘She’s a great character and we’re really close to casting her, as well.’

While the show might be ending, Knight has already said that there is potential for the story to continue ‘in other ways’ which has been presumed to be a movie.

The first episode of the new series is titled ‘Black Day’ and will pick up moments after the season five finale, where leading man Tommy (played by Cillian Murphy) had a gun his head.

Metro.co.uk has contacted the Peaky Blinders team for further comment.

Peaky Blinders is available now on BBC iPlayer and Netflix.
