“Dracula” And The Gay Reveal

This post contains spoilers for last night’s episode of Dracula

If you haven’t tuned into NBC’s new take on the King of Vampires, last night’s episode of Dracula gave you another reason to check the series out.

One Day Like This

  • ScreenTerrier
Filming is currently underway in Glasgow on a 2-hour drama for BBC3 called One Day Like This.

Written by Northern Irish TV writer Terry Cafolla, the film is described as an "uplifting tragedy", with the inspiration for the script the statistic that car accidents are the biggest killer of young people and that the most likely cause of death for a woman under the age of 24 is the driving of her partner.

The young cast includes Skins' star Lily Loveless (represented by United Agents), with newly brown hair.

Lewis Rainer (represented by Tcg Artist Management), a Guildford School of Acting graduate, stars as Tom Harris. Lewis played Ross Duncan in Grange Hill and more recently was seen as Alex in Dani's House for Cbbc.

Screenterrier rising star Josh Bolt (represented by Curtis Brown) plays Brian. Josh, from Liverpool, played the lead in ITV's Just Henry.
