Geordie youth club drama Byker Grove was one of the greatest children's TV shows of the '80s and '90s, and next month it will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a special party in Newcastle.
But what ever happened to the stars of the show? We look back at some of the programme's breakout stars and forgotten favourites.
1. Declan Donnelly played Duncan
In the show's first series, Dec was going solo as 'Duncan' and it wasn't until he was united with Ant's 'Pj' that he truly became a central figure in the series. While they are remembered as being best buddies on the show, Duncan did end up nabbing Pj's girlfriend Debbie. After Pj went blind in a paintball accident. Hardly the stuff of best mates in retrospect.
2. Ant McPartlin played Pj
Responsible for scaring a whole generation of children out of ever going paintballing, »
Spoiler alert: The Oct. 21 episode of Sons of Anarchy introduced Winsome (Gang Related's Inbar Lavi), a prostitute who trades information on her abusive pimp's whereabouts to Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in exchange for a new job at Diosa. As executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed the episode, tells EW in our full postmortem, it wasn't until showrunner Kurt Sutter saw the chemistry between Jax and Winsome that he decided to play with it again in episode 10. Lavi initially turned down the chance to audition for the show, only because she had the flu when she got the call. But hearing that »

Spoiler alert: The Oct. 21 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Greensleeves," ended with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) receiving a box from August Marks that will haunt Samcro and viewers. Exec producer Paris Barclay, who directed the episode, takes EW inside filming that tragic twist and the other big moments. EW: Let's start at the beginning, with Juice being given back his cut at the site of John Teller's death, then setting off on his mission to get himself arrested so he can kill Lin inside. What is the significance of that site now? Barclay: I believe that it's going to be an »

Sons of Anarchy opened with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Juice (Theo Rossi) at the fateful location where John Teller died. Instead of killing Juice for his betrayal, Jax decided to give him a mission to test his loyality to the brotherhood. Jax tells him to get himself arrested by shooting at the tires of cop cars. Once he’s inside, he’s to kill Lin (Kenneth Choi). Unbeknownst to Juice, Jax has a back-up plan in the form of Ron Tully (Marilyn Manson) should he fail.
Sons of Anarchy Recap
While overseeing Red Woody’s latest production, Jax gets a visit from Unser (Dayton Callie), who informs him that Eglee (Marya Delver) is alive and talking. Eglee told Unser that the day she was shot both Samcro and Ab were there. She has no plans on ratting anyone out, so long as she can be guaranteed her own safety. Jax »
“Greensleeves” was a bit of a reprieve from the growing body count that Sons of Anarchy has been throwing at viewers this season. Unfortunately, that didn’t keep the tragedies at bay. Even with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) attempting to come to a less bloody resolution for the conflict that he created with Marks (Billy Brown), there were too many variables at play to have predicted the outcome of tonight’s shocking final scene.
Let’s face it. Jax practically begged Marks to retaliate. He’s been stacking the odds against himself from the very beginning. Not only has he created a situation where everyone on the wrong side of the law was forced to choose a side, and even some wearing badges (it wasn’t surprising that Officer Eglee chose to remain on good terms with the club), but ultimately, it wasn’t between him and Lin. When all the chips fell, »

Tina Fey recalls casting Jan Hooks on “30 Rock,” says: “Jan should have had a bigger career ... as big as Rob Schneider's f*cking career" “We needed to cast Jane Krakowski's estranged Florida dirtbag mother, and I thought, My God, do you think we could get Jan Hooks?” Fey recalled on Monday night, adding »

By the end of Pacific Rim, our heroes Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) had successfully sealed the breach and saved humanity Forever. or perhaps not. Doing his damnedest to open a new portal to that alien world is director Guillermo del Toro, who is hard at work with screenwriter Zak Penn on crafting Pacific Rim 2, and he's given Collider an update on the sequel and the sequel after that. That's right, there will be a third one. »
"We got the first draft of the movie now, and we are going to spend another 4-5 months on the screenplay before we start pre-production. We start pre-production next year in August-September and start shooting November-December next year.
The direction we're going in is very different from the first. All I can say is some of your favorite characters come back, some others don't because we have decided that we're going to shoot ambitiously and say 'Let's hope we have three movies,' so some characters come in »

Back in June, Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro announced that Pacific Rim 2 is moving forward, with Warner Bros. handing out an April 3, 2017 release date, along with an animated TV series that will bridge the gap between the first two movies. While promoting his animated adventure The Book of Life, the filmmaker revealed that he is actually planning on making Pacific Rim 3, with certain characters appearing at the end of Pacific Rim 2 that will lead into the third installment.
Here's what he had to say in a recent interview, where he confirmed that a first draft of the Pacific Rim 2 script is complete.
"We got the first draft of the movie now, and we are going to spend another 4-5 months on the screenplay before we start pre-production. We start pre-production next year in August-September and start shooting November-December next year. The direction we're going in is very different from the first. »
Spoiler alert: In the Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em," Leland (Brad Carter) and the Aryan Brotherhood made a return appearance to have a fistfight with Samcro, view the corpses of the ambushed East Dub crew, and taste-test the Mayan heroin that Tully (Marilyn Manson) is going to now distribute in Stockton under Jax's (Charlie Hunnam) new plan. Viewers may recognize the Texas-born, Georgia-raised Carter, who'd auditioned to play an Irish biker on Sons years ago, from HBO's True Detective—he played Ab inmate Charlie Lange. "Fortunately and unfortunately, these kind of characters seem to be in my wheelhouse. »

Spoiler alert: In the Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em," Alvarez (Emilio Rivera) declines Juice's offer of intel on Samcro in exchange for getting him into Mexico. Instead, Alvarez strikes a deal with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) to hand Juice over...in exchange for inheriting the Irish gun trade once they take down August Marks and splitting Lin's territory with the Niners (which will make up for the Mayans letting the Aryan Brotherhood distribute heroin in Stockton). Rivera, who's recurred on the show since the pilot, talked to EW about Alvarez's play, how he'll remember the show, »

Charlie Hunnam Films 'Soa'
Hunnam was pictured leaning against his character Jax Teller's Harley Davidson when the cameras weren't rolling. Dressed in his Samcro attire, Hunnam wore baggy jeans, Jax's signature white sneakers and a plaid shirt under his black leather vest. Around his waste, he was packing his trusty knife.
As the Sons of Anarchy cast is nearing the end of filming the show's seventh and final season, the actors have expressed their wish that it wasn't the end of the road. “We could still be telling this story for five more years, but when we signed on for a seven-year contract, in [creator Kurt] Sutter’s mind, »

Sensing Wendy’s worked up over Jax (Charlie Hunnam), he admits that the Sons leader doesn’t have an “outer crust,” which causes him to take everything in and boil up. Bobby also acknowledges that Wendy's ex is driven by his heart before he asks her if she still loves him; she does.

Spoiler alert: The Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em," ended with Juice (Theo Rossi) face-to-face with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) after he tried to make an ill-advised deal with Alvarez (Emilio Rivera) offering intel on Samcro in exchange for help getting into Mexico. Episode director Guy Ferland—who's helmed many memorable hours of Soa including "The Pull," "Albification," and season 7's "Poor Little Lambs"—phoned EW from the set of Gotham, where he's in the director's chair this week, to talk about filming Juice's betrayal, that East Dub ambush, and Gemma's breakdown.

Sons of Anarchy is careening toward its last hoorah and fans are holding on tight for the duration of this daunting final ride. Around every bend there seems to be a new roadblock and there’s no definite way to tell where the road is headed.
Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is leading his crew into no man’s land as he creates an elaborate war to gain a hold over, well, everyone. It’s really a masterful change of pace, since instead of concentrating on one rival gang, Mc, or antagonist (or even two) at a time, the writers have found a way to incorporate all of the players into one last arc. It pays homage to characters that have been on the periphery for multiple seasons, and adds a sense of finality to the entire story. Fans are getting a chance to say goodbye to everyone that has made it through the dark days, »
