Release: Jul 27, 2012
'Parents' is a new sitcom commissioned by Sky1 due for transmission in July 2012. Starring Sally Phillips, Darren Strange, Tom Conti & Susie Blake with a host of guest-stars each episode.
I was fortunate enough to bag a part in Episode Three playing the husband to Imogen Stubbs, the epsiode's guest.
Excellent to be working with the production company Objective again; the shoot was smooth and great fun. My character has a lot of screen time but barely any dialogue, so the skill was creating a full life on-screen without the help of words. Reacting truthfully to the events around me was the way forward - but we'll just have to wait and see if it worked...
The scripts are superb - genuinely funny and great material for these heavyweight actors to play with. Well done to all involved.
'Parents' starts with a double-episode on Sky1 at 8:30pm on Friday July 6th. You can catch me in Episode 3 on Fri July 13th...
