The actress who plays Poppy in Only Murders in the Building, Adina Verson, is a relative newbie when it comes to the world of acting and has only 10 credits to her credit so far (via IMDb). Verson’s first acting performance came in 2014 on the Hulu series Deadbeat, starring Tyler Labine, in which she played a waitress in one episode. Since Deadbeat, Shed has guest starred on a variety of TV shows such as The Strain in 2014 and 2015, Mozart in the Jungle in 2016 and 2018 (playing two different characters in two different episodes) and New Amsterdam in 2020. She also starred in two short films, 2015’s Go or Run and 2022’s Troy.
Overall, though, Verson’s most notable role so far is undoubtedly Murders Only, in which she appeared for a total of six episodes. At the end of August 2021, Verson traveled to Instagram to express her gratitude for playing Poppy in the detective-comedy series. “I am so excited to be a tiny part of this amazing project. [‘Only Murders in the Building] The premiere will take place tomorrow, August 31! she wrote. – It was a significant event for me not only [because] MARTINS AND SELENA ARE IN, but it was also my first job since the pandemic hit… you can meet my character, Poppy, in episodes 4 and 8!”
