EVE MYLES HEADLINES NEW LUCY GANNNON BBC-1 DRAMA FRANKIE
Eve Myles, the Torchwood alumni, is to play the lead role in Frankie – a six part drama series for BBC-1 from the pen of the acclaimed Lucy Gannon.
The series follows the work of a dedicated district nurse and her team and Eve said of the series “This is an incredible leading part for a female. It’s tremendous pressure but also tremendously exciting. I can’t wait to step into Frankie’s shoes and get on set. I’m desperate to start. Frankie is an infectious character, she’s electric, quirky, wonderful at her job and adapts to every situation. She’s a vibrant woman trying to live life in the fast lane and juggle a job. Lucy Gannon is an incredible writer and writes relationships so beautifully.”
Meanwhile Lucy who also wrote the recent uplifting BBC drama The Best of Men said “I’m thrilled to be writing about strong modern people, people you and I might know, in our real life communities, a team of lively, varied people who all – whatever their flaws, are determined to make a difference, to make life better.”
The series is currently filming in Bristol and will air on BBC-1 in Spring 2013.
