Fran Tither lands herself in DCI Banks!

Be sure to keep your eyes on the next series of DCI Banks to be shown later this year, as it will star our very own Fran Tither. Congratulations to her and the entire DCI Banks team at ITV.

Dock’s Law at Lowry is boosted by AD cast including a familiar face.

We are pleased to announce that Actors Direct clients Justine, Michael, Fran, and Darren are all to be a part of Dock’s Law which is showing at the Salford Lowry’s Quay’s Theatre on the 24th April.

The show is created by Stephanie Pearce for CRIS (Creative Industry in Salford) who deliver creative projects to provide training and inspiration within the community. The excitement for this opportunity is seen on these participants faces as they meet former Hollyoaks star, Darren Langford.

Need some Smoulder? How about Hazel Earle

After a sell out success it seems the critics are also behind her Hazel Tree production of “Grotto” which stormed the Lass o’Gowrie this December.
Directed by the former director of The Royal Exchange, Jacob Murray, the show received several 4 star reviews, including favourable mentions for miss Earle herself. Follow these links to see the reviews on WhatOnStage, UK Theatre Network, and Public Reviews.

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.
