We recently provided artists for a Virgin Train commercial.
‘Witness For The Prosecution’ aired on Boxing Day starring Kim Cattrall. We provided Jury for this production, featured extras and John Slater had dialogue. Well done everyone!
We have lovely identical triplets available and ready for work. The girls have already taken to the limelight by appearing various documentaries!
Boé, Mika and Hope where born on 25th August 2014 and featured in a documentary on ITV called “The triplets are coming”. They are naturally conceived, identical, female triplets and hit the news papers when they where born as the statistics for babies like them are 1 in approximately 2 million.
They appeared live on “Good Morning Britain”, have had pictures in “The Times”, “The Mirror” and a couple of other national news papers. They have undertaken modelling for various photography studios for their adverts and promotion. Most recently they have just completed 7 weeks of filming for a ‘Big Talk Production’.
We loved working with William Hill last week on a 1 day shoot around Central London.
Bookmaker William Hill has pulled off an audacious stunt to celebrate the launch of its £50 Million Prem Predictor game – using a specially-constructed transparent truck, the company toured the cash around the streets of London.
The £50 Million prize is the world’s biggest prize ever offered by a bookmaker and to mark the occasion, William Hill toured a loot-loaded lorry around some of London’s most iconic landmarks in a never-seen-before stunt.
You could win £50 Million if you predict how the Premier League will finish, plus there’s a guaranteed £100k to be won from William Hill, the UK’s biggest bookmaker.
Well done to all our artists who took part in the filming of the 2nd series of ‘The Mill’. Many of our artists were regulars and proved to be very committed.
Following the success of the first series in 2013, the new six-part second series will cover the period between 1838-1842 focusing on the lives of the mill workers against a background of significant social and political changes following the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834 which made a distinction between ‘deserving’ and ‘undeserving’ poor. This is a time of the great Chartist rallies and the birth of modern democracy with the movement for the right for working class people to vote sweeping across the country.
The drama is inspired by documents from Quarry Bank’s extensive archive describing the lives of the workers and apprentices who worked for the mill’s founder, Samuel Greg, and his family during the 19th century. ‘The Mill’ is driven by a young, spirited cast who find filming on location at Quarry Bank particularly moving: “Filming scenes in the rooms in which the events actually took place is the strangest feeling,” says Kerrie Hayes (Nowhere Boy, Kicks, Black Mirror), who plays the lead role of feisty Liverpudlian apprentice Esther Price, “We get a real sense of the history.”
Other members of the cast are enjoying the simplicity of the costumes and unanticipated benefits of not wearing make-up. “It was really freeing to experience a disregard for vanity as it can put such a pressure on women in modern life.” says Sacha Parkinson (Coronation Street, My Mad Fat Diary, Shameless), who plays young apprentice Miriam Catterall. Other returning characters from the first series include progressive young engineer Daniel Bate, played by Matthew McNulty (See No Evil: The Moors Murders, The Paradise, Misfits) with his new wife, Miriam’s sister Susannah Bate, played by Holly Lucas (Holby City, Where the Heart Is, Bronson).
Series 2 will also introduce new characters, including John Howlett, his wife Rebecca and their children, economic migrants in search of work in the booming North. These key roles are portrayed by Mark Frost (Doctors, Jonathan Creek, Casualty) and Laura Main (Call The Midwife, Monarch of the Glen, The Forsyte Saga). There are new tensions with the arrival of Will Whittaker, played by TV newcomer Mark Strepan, a handsome apprentice shoemaker who catches Esther Price’s eye. And newcomer Sope Dirisu also joins the cast as Peter Gardener, a black apprentice whom Hannah Greg has brought back from the Greg Plantation in Dominica to work at The Mill.
John Fay (Coronation Street, Brookside, Torchwood), who wrote the popular first series and currently leads the writing team working on the second series, also joined the actors.
“We are delighted to be involved again with this project. Inspired by the achieve at Quarry Bank Mill, last year’s drama series generated increased visitor numbers and stimulated huge interest in Quarry Bank and its history. The series led to some fascinating conversations with our visitors about the lives of the mill owners and mill workers who lived here. We look forward to series 2, and further interest in this extraordinary place, and the stories we tell here.” Eleanor Underhill, General Manager, Quarry Bank Mill.
