The first pictures of Sheridan Smith in The C Word have been released.
The drama documents Lynch's experience with cancer, and is described as "a defiant, ballsy account" of her battle against the illness.
Smith stars as Lynch, who passed away in 2013 at the age of 33 after assisting in the casting of the actress.
Speaking about Lynch, Smith said: "Her zest for life was infectious. I was moved and inspired by her courage and bravery. I couldn't help but love her. That's why I want to tell her story.
"I'm so sad that Lisa won't get to see the finished drama, having been so involved in the development of it. I'm honoured and humbled that she wanted me to play her on screen, and I hope that I will make her proud. »

BAFTA Television Awards 2015: This year's nominees in full
Digital Spy presents a list of the nominees at this year's House of Fraser BAFTA Television Awards, which will take place on Sunday, May 10:
Shearsmith and Pemberton's Inside No. 9 delivers a well-crafted, moving character study that proves this show is much more than a novelty...
This review contains spoilers.
2.2. 12 Days Of Christine
This week’s instalment of Inside No. 9’s six standalone mystery plays took a drastically different turn from twisty series 2 opener La Couchette. Also directed by horror director Guillem Morales, The 12 Days of Christine moved from following a group of people in (almost) real time as they deal with a particular set of difficulties and instead introduced one central character as the focus. Here we were invited to spend time with Sheridan Smith’s Christine over the course of 12 important days of her life – a seemingly simple set up that, as to be expected from No. 9, was cunningly deceptive…
Beginning with an establishing shot of a tower block of flats, with the sound of city sirens in the distance, we »
Successful scripted comedy is, for the most part, built on firmly established characters that an audience grows to loathe, love or basically care one jot about. Which is why Inside No 9 is such a wonderful anomaly.
The BBC Two anthology series – written by Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith – invites the audience into six standalone and terrifyingly bonkers worlds where the only constant is the number on the door of the house / booth / train carriage.
The first episode in the returning series, which begins tonight, is every bit as farcical, dark and hilarious as the comedy we've come to expect from Pemberton and Shearsmith.
'La Couchette' sees irritable Dr Maxwell (Shearsmith) trying and failing to fall asleep on an overnight train from Paris to Bourg St Maurice. He has an important job interview the following morning at the World Health Organisation.

Universal Pictures has continued to push forward with its prequel tale to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman by adding three actors into the mix to form part of the new dwarfs set to feature in The Huntsman.
Similarly to the original film, three British actors have been cast in the roles alongside the returning Nick Frost as Nion. Gavin & Stacey stars Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith have joined the cast, as has Alexandra Roach who co-starred in 2013’s One Chance.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan makes his directorial debut with the film, which has Chris Hemsworth (The Hunstman) and Charlize Theron (Ravenna) reprising their roles from the original, joined by Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) and Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year).
The prequel is set in the same world as the previous film, but tells a new chapter in the story which focuses on the Huntsman and Ravenna’s lives before »

Rob Brydon ("The Trip"), Alexandra Roach ("Cuban Fury") and Sheridan Smith ("Jonathan Creek") have all signed on to play three new dwarfs in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's "The Huntsman," the upcoming prequel to 2012's "Snow White and the Huntsman" which is in development at Universal Pictures.
Nick Frost has already signed on to reprise his dwarf role from the original, at the time it was indicated that the film would only feature two dwarfs. Seems that stance has been reconsidered, though Frost is the only actor who played a dwarf in the first film who is coming back for the sequel.
Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the other dwarfs in 'Snow White' and aren't expected back - though Jones and Marsan were said to have been contacted about the job.

Here are the three new faces.
There's no Kristen Stewart this time, given that the film is set »
The cast of The Huntsman, the prequel to the 2012 fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman, already has a solid cast. Chris Hemsworth is reprising his title role, with Charlize Theron back as Ravenna and newcomers Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain coming aboard. And while all the dwarves from the first film aren't back, Nick Frost is at least back as Nion. Now some more dwarves are entering the mix as THR reports The Trip star Rob Brydon, Quartet actress Sheridan Smith and The Iron Lady supporting star Alexandra Roach have all taken roles as the gruff ensemble of dwarves this time. Yeah, there's some female dwarves! As of now, there aren't a lot of specifics on the story, but the prequel takes place before Snow White ever crosses paths with Ravenna and will follow the huntsman Eric as he is sent on a quest to find the stolen magic mirror, »

Less than a month after actor Nick Frost signed on to reprise his Snow White and the Huntsman dwarf role Nion in Universal Pictures' sequel The Huntsman, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have signed on to play three new dwarfs. We reported in January that the sequel will only feature two dwarfs, but it seems Universal has reconsidered that stance. No details were given regarding these new characters, but this is the first time female dwarfs are being introduced into the fairy tale storyline.
In Snow White and the Huntsman, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the seven dwarfs. Our report from January revealed that Toby Jones could not come to terms with the studio to reprise his role, while Eddie Marsan had scheduling complications with the Showtime series Ray Donovan. It isn't known why the others »
The prequel was originally supposed to be directed by Frank Darabont, but he quit the project in January.
Watch the Snow White and the Huntsman »
Universal’s The Huntsman, a spinoff of 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman, has secured a brand new roster of dwarves to accompany returning dwarf Nick Frost. Much like Disney’s Beauty And The Beast remake is crowded with Brits, it seems that Universal are chasing down a similar idea as Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have all signed on to appear.
Their involvement on The Huntsman makes for interesting news in light of previous reports suggesting there would be a distinct lack of dwarves in the movie. Nevertheless, the trio are enlisted and ought to be in for a cracking time. Two of the newest cast, Brydon and Smith, will be reunited after they both starred in the BBC comedy series Gavin & Stacey. Brydon can be also seen in Disney’s live-action Cinderella which opened last weekend. Roach’s biggest role to date was in Margaret Thatcher »

The Huntsman is getting an influx of dwarves. Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach, and Sheridan Smith are joining the Snow White and the Huntsman prequel as three dwarves, along with returning cast member Nick Frost. Also reprising their roles from the first film are Chris Hemsworth as Eric (the titular Huntsman) and Charlize Theron as Ravenna. In […]

Back in January, there was some concern that the Snow White And The Huntsman prequel – simply called The Huntsman – would be rather lacking in the dwarfular department thanks to story directions and scheduling issues. Good news on that front! Nick Frost, who played Nion in the first film, will be back for this one, with Sheridan Smith, Rob Brydon and Alexandra Roach also signing on. This news signals that the likes of Ian McShane, Ray Winston, Johnny Harris, Eddie Marsan and Brian Gleeson are unlikely to return, though we’re counting none of them out given the change in Frost’s status.Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is handling directorial chores for this one, which finds Chris Hemsworth’s title character in the years before he first met Snow, and his early encounters with Charlize Theron’s beguiling, dangerous Ravenna. Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain are also set for the film, which will »
Plot details are vague beyond that the film reveals how two characters, the Huntsman Eric (Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Theron), intersected before they met Snow White. Details on Chastain’s character are also under wraps.
Brydon was most recently seen in Disney’s “Cinderella” and »
