Black Work review: ‘pacy, tight and intriguing, but it’s no Line of Duty’

21 June 2015 11:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Even the amazing Sheridan Smith can’t turn this tale of a murdered undercover cop into brilliant drama

Sheridan Smith! Everyone’s favourite actor, doing her mascara in the morning. Well, pretty much my favourite actor anyway – after her performances as Lisa Lynch, and Cilla, and Mrs Biggs. Now she’s in Black Work (ITV, Sunday).

An admirably quickly put together drama about the Rachel Dolezal affair, and the mascara is the final touch to a longer, more controversial process? You (I) wish. When that does happen though, I think Smith would make an excellent Dolezal, with both the acting talent and the parentage for it. No, here she’s a copper, PC Jo Gillespie, in an unspecified Yorkshire city. Domestically, she’s just about still married to Ryan, another police officer, who is … oh, sadly, dead. He’s been shot through the chest at a disused warehouse (where else? »

Sheridan Smith left heartbroken by new drama

10 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Sheridan Smith felt heartbroken after filming dramatic scenes for new ITV drama 'Black Work'. The 33-year-old actress was emotionally distraught from acting in the series in which she plays mother and police widow Jo Gillespie, whose husband is shot dead in mysterious circumstances leaving her to break the news to their two children. She said: ''You get so involved in it all. The scene where she has to tell them their father is dead broke my heart and I couldn't imagine what it would be like for a real family.'' Sheridan particularly got close to her on-screen kids, played by youngsters »

Bafta winner Georgina Campbell: ‘We wanted it to be truthful and real'

13 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The star of BBC3’s Murdered by My Boyfriend triumphed over Sheridan Smith and Keeley Hawes, and still can’t believe that she was spotted on the street

“What a drama queen!” Georgina Campbell says when reminded of how she reacted to her Bafta success on Sunday night. Her open-mouthed astonishment was caught on camera and now her friends are bombarding her with screen-grabs of her face “looking like a fish”.

It’s a few days since the 22-year-old was named best actress at the TV awards and her excitement is still infectious. Pitted against a trio of critically acclaimed household names – Sheridan Smith, Sarah Lancashire and Keeley Hawes – Campbell didn’t expect to win. She hadn’t even bothered to write an acceptance speech.

Murdered by My Boyfriend star: BBC Three shows can be successful online

12 May 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Does moving BBC Three online mean viewers will miss out? Murdered by My Boyfriend star Georgina Campbell isn't so sure.

Campbell - who won a BAFTA on Sunday night for her performance in the one-off drama - told press including Digital Spy that other shows could emulate the success of Murdered by My Boyfriend on BBC iPlayer.

"It seems like Murdered by My Boyfriend did really well on iPlayer - it was the most-watched [programme] on iPlayer in the week it came out," the actress said backstage at the House of Fraser BAFTA Television Awards.

"If it did so well for BBC Three - and it was mostly [through] iPlayer - there's no reason why there can't be more shows like this coming from BBC Three, and hopefully they will get the same recognition and the same viewers."

Ellie White’s favourite TV

11 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The comedian and House Of Fools star on how she never misses an episode of Inside No 9 and her love of really, really bad reality TV

Inside No 9. I’ve been watching that religiously. I loved the Sheridan Smith episode. I think that’s the best one so far, but that seems to be the general consensus. Brilliant acting, brilliant writing. I like that it’s billed as comedy, even though it’s not really. It’s a series of dark dramas, but they have these wry moments in them. I love the fact that an anthology show has picked up such a great following. It proves that people don’t need those kind of catchy hooks.

'The Huntsman': Sam Claflin Will Return as William

8 May 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sam Claflin, who played Snow White's (Kristen Stewart) love interest William in 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman, will be returning for the upcoming prequel The Huntsman. The casting is somewhat surprising, though, since Kristen Stewart is not coming back as Snow White. In the original, it was William's kiss that broke Snow White's spell, but in the sequel, William is only said to have a small, supporting role.

The plot is set before Snow White and the Huntsman, centering on how The Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Charlize Theron) first crossed paths, long before either of them met Snow White. Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith also star in the prequel. It isn't known if the production is eyeing other Snow White and the Huntsman stars to return for this new adventure.

Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is directing from a screenplay by Frank Darabont, »

Claflin Set For "Huntsman," Robin Friday

8 May 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sam Claflin will reprise his role of William, the childhood best friend of Snow White, in the upcoming "The Huntsman" at Universal Pictures.

A prequel/spin-off to the 2012 fantasy epic "Snow White and the Huntsman," this one puts the focus on Chris Hemsworth's titular character and how his life first intersected with the evil Queen.

Charlize Theron is returning as Queen Ravenna, while Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith are also onboard.

Claflin appearance will only be a small supporting one this time out. Kristen Stewart is not expected to return as Snow White with the character unlikely to be a part of the film.

Cedric Nicolas-Troyan will direct from a script by Frank Darabont, Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos. Joe Roth will produce.

That isn't the only project Claflin is involved in today though. It has just been announced that the actor will topline "Robin Friday, »

Sam Claflin To Tackle Robin Friday Biopic

7 May 2015 6:49 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A double dose of Sam Claflin news this fine Friday, and appropriately one of the stories is Friday-related. The actor will be playing Robin Friday, the ill-starred but supremely louche Reading and Cardiff striker, in the long-gestating film of his life. His agent has been busy because Claflin has also signed on to return for Snow White And The Huntsman sequel, The Huntsman, in the role of Snow White’s love interest, William.There’s no danger he’ll mix the two up and scythe down Snow White with a two-footed lunge, largely because Kristen Stewart is unlikely to return as the mirror-bothering princess. Instead Claflin, who’s earmarked for a small supporting role, will be joined by franchise newbies Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt, with Charlize Theron back as Queen Ravenna. Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith are also aboard.More intriguing is the Friday story. »

Bafta TV awards 2015: who should win best actress?

6 May 2015 4:49 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Newcomer Georgina Campbell is up against Sheridan Smith, Sarah Lancashire and Keeley Hawes, while the supporting nominees are notable for an absence

In an almost exact facsimile of the Royal Television Society awards earlier this year, the leading actress category throbs with talented women, three stalwarts and one wild card. Georgina Campbell, who starred in Murdered by my Boyfriend for BBC3, is definitely the outsider but a worthy nominee for her performance as a young woman in an abusive relationship. It was brutal, unflinching and a difficult watch, but Campbell’s work stands alongside Olivia Colman’s in the 2011 film Tyrannosaur in terms of commitment and detail.
