Actors Direct and David Jason at BBC Manchester

BBC Manchester are scheduled to begin shooting the pilot for new dark comedy, “Pearly Gates” directed by none other than David Jason.
The wonderful new show about funeral directors in the North West will hopefully be turning into a full comedy series, and is also starring our very own Roger Grainger as a vicar for the funerals.

We wish all the best to the Beeb, David, and Roger in this new project.

Actors Direct welcomes Taresh Solanki to the books.

The newest actor to join our fantastic agency, Taresh has had a great career, on stage and screen, having played Dr Haywood in Emmerdale,  and recently playing the almost sadistic cynic, Judge Hawthorne in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible.
