His Dark Materials is based on author Philip Pullman's fantasy trilogy of the same. In the books, dæmons are the external physical manifestation of a person's "inner-self" that takes the form of an animal.

"What’s beautiful to me about the books is the relationship with the dæmons and, I think this is the first time we are revealing this, but my daemon is going to be played by someone who is very close to me in my real life: a young performer and writer called Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

"The relationship is all about companionship, friendship, and loyalty and that’s what I feel about Phoebe in my real life so it’s wonderful that this is happening," Scott said.

The duo previously featured together in the second season of Waller-Bridge's Fleabag. Scott had starred as the "Hot Preist" opposite Waller-Bridge's titular character Fleabag.

His Dark Materials follows the life of young Lyra, who is an orphan living with the tutors at Jordan College, Oxford. She discovers a dangerous secret that involves Lord Asriel and Marisa Coulter.

In her search for her missing friend, Lyra also uncovers a slew of kidnappings and its link to the mysterious substance called Dust.

The BBC and HBO show stars Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson and James McAvoy in the lead.
