Mr Selfridge: Kara Tointon, Leon Ockenden on joining up for series 3

24 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Mr Selfridge returns to ITV tomorrow night, but the winds of change are blowing through London.

Picking up with Harry (Jeremy Piven) in 1919, the ten new episodes see the charismatic American entrepreneur mourning the loss of his wife Rose.

Joining the show as Harry's daughter Rosalie is EastEnders actress Kara Tointon, while Waterloo Road's Leon Ockenden is also on board as her playboy fiancé Serge.

Meet... Rosalie Selfridge (Kara Tointon)

Kara is of course no stranger to joining an established hit series, and insists any nerves she felt upon joining the Mr Selfridge cast were quickly calmed. "Entering a show that's established can be quite daunting, but the people there have been so welcoming," she says.

"Especially Jeremy Piven - he wants you to do your best... to feel comfortable and to give it your best shot."

Harry's other daughter - the rebellious Violette - will also be joining »

Another 'Cyclops' Potential Plays Coy About His X-men: Apocalypse Involvement

22 January 2015 5:24 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

None of the three actors said to be in the running (that we know of anyway) to play a younger version of Cyclops in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse are exactly what you'd call household names yet, but Ben Hardy will be least familiar... to Us audiences at any rate. In the UK and Ireland he's been appearing on our screens every week since 2013 in the popular soap, Eastenders. Now the BBC have already confirmed that Hardy will be leaving the show at the end of his current contract, but does that mean his next role following that will be Cyc? Backstage at the National television Awards last night Digital Spy asked the young actor if he'd be joining the cast of the next X-flick. "Er, sorry? Oh well, that's the rumour," he replied, before adding a slightly more telling: "Nothing guaranteed though." Now obviously even if he had won »

EastEnders star Ben Hardy: 'X-Men role is not guaranteed'

22 January 2015 2:11 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

EastEnders star Ben Hardy stayed coy at the National Television Awards last night (January 21) when quizzed about reports linking him to the next X-Men film.

Back in November, it was claimed that Hardy is being lined up to play a young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse.

News of Hardy pursuing other roles soon led to EastEnders bosses confirming that he will be bowing out as Walford's Peter Beale at the end of his current contract.

Speaking to reporters including Digital Spy backstage at the NTAs last night, Hardy was asked to confirm whether he will indeed be part of the next X-Men project.

He laughed: "Er, sorry? Oh well, that's the rumour. Nothing guaranteed though."

His on-screen father Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale) joked: "If he is, I want tickets for the premiere!"

Hardy arrived on screen on EastEnders as the sixth actor to play Peter in June 2013. Details of how and »
