THE new BBC show Marriage is set to hit our screens soon – and there are a few famous faces you might recognise.
Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming premiere of the new BBC1 drama Marriage – from cast list to release date.
Who is in the cast of Marriage?
Following that she returned to our screens as the leading lady in Prisoner’s Wives, Heading Out, Scott and Bailey and Babylon.
Speaking of the BBC1 drama Marriage, she said: “This is a unique project. Stefan has created such a beautiful, funny and complicated world and I’m excited to be stepping into Ian and Emma’s marriage with Sean.
Nicola plays Emma – a woman negotiating the ups and downs of 27 years of marriage with he husband, Ian.
He first found fame in 1993, when he starred in the mini series Lady Chatterley – playing Mellors.
Talking of his new casting as Ian in Marriage, Sean said: “I’m thrilled to be playing opposite the talented Nicola Walker.
”It’s been a real pleasure for me working with Nicola and I know everyone says that but it really has.”
Sean plays Ian, the husband of Emma – and a man facing the fears, doubts, joy, happiness and heartbreak that come with a 27-year marriage.
Who else is in the cast?
Although the cast list is small – viewers may recognise some of these famous faces from previous hit TV shows.
James Bolam, best known for his roles in New Tricks and The Likely Lads – will be playing Gerry, Emma’s father.
Giving viewers an insight into his role as Jamie, Henry said: “Jamie is on one level a high achieving alpha go-getter but on every other level he’s a hollow man. He’s a sad clown who fills his life full of distractions, sugar and calories.
As I’ve been discovering in the making of this TV show as I have been eating in almost every scene.”
”He’s in charge of a solicitors firm which he inherited from his father who is a looming figure of this story although we never see him.
”Emma works there with him and it is that working environment that you can see mainly through the eyes of people who work there and the confines of that universe.
”He thinks that he is a big deal and people look up to him in a way that he manipulates the status quo. As we go through our story we come to realise that there are a great number of short cuts and how this is all a pretence.”
Other cast members include Chantelle Alle as Jessica – the daughter of Ian and Emma.
And Jack Holden as Jessica’s boyfriend Adam.
