Further casting announced for BBC One’s major new surveillance conspiracy thriller, The Capture
Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hand Of God), Famke Janssen (X Men, Taken), Laura Haddock (Transformers: The Last Knight, Guardians Of The Galaxy), Ben Miles (The Crown, Coupling), Lia Williams (The Crown, Kiri), Sophia Brown (Clique, Marcella), Paul Ritter (Friday Night Dinner, Quantum Of Solace), Adelayo Adedayo (Origin, Some Girls) and Ralph Ineson (Harry Potter, Game Of Thrones) have joined the cast of The Capture.
In addition, Cavan Clerkin (The Last Kingdom, The Inbetweeners), Barry Ward (Jimmy’s Hall, Save Me), Ginny Holder (Death In Paradise, Holby City) and Nigel Lindsay (Four Lions, Victoria) will also star.
They will feature alongside the previously announced Callum Turner (War And Peace, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald) and Holliday Grainger (Strike, Cinderella) in the six part series, which has been written and directed by Ben Chanan, and is produced by Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios for BBC One.
The Capture is an acutely timely surveillance thriller set in London, which looks at a troubling world of misinformation, fake news, and the extraordinary technological capabilities of the intelligence services. In the post-truth era and when criminal justice relies so heavily on video evidence, can we always trust what we see?
Ben Chanan, Writer and Director, says: “I am incredibly excited to see The Capture brought to life by such a wonderful cast and crew. It’s an honour to come to work every day with these hugely talented people.”
