Rehearsals for ‘Miss Marple’ have started last week and Sophia Myles is busy preparing for the shoot.
I have new pictures to add, but as I’m working on a make-over for the site (that will also feature a new gallery) I can’t post them yet. But I hope to be ready soon, so stay tuned for the new layout!!
Sophia has decided on a new project: She’ll appear in a new episode of the high-quality British television series ‘Miss Marple’ starring Geraldine McEwan. For anyone not familiar with these series: each episode is based upon a book written by Agatha Christie. There’s not yet much known about the episode Sophia is to appear in, but it’ll be (of course) a who’s-done-it-story. Sophia’s character is called Gwenda, is 21 years old and has just returned to her homecountry England after being brought up in India. Shooting will take place during a few weeks over summer. Isn’t that great news!!
I’ve added some screen captures of Sophia Myles in ‘Colditz’ – which was great in my opinion. View them here: Part 1, Behind the Scenes and Interview.
Information from ITV TV Guide: First part will air on Sunday, March 27 at 21.00 and the second/final part on Monday, March 28 also at 21.00. The channel is ITV1 – in the UK.
Plot summary: First of a two-part drama, starring Tom Hardy as Jack Rose, a soldier trapped in a German PoW camp, desperate to return home to England and his girlfriend Lizzie. When a daring escape attempt sees the young man locked up in the sinister Colditz and fellow comrade McGrade running free, Jack shouts a final plea to him to find Lizzie and assure her that he will be home soon – unaware of the effect his request will have on all of their lives. Conclusion of the two-part drama. Believing Jack to be dead, Lizzie turns to drink in an effort to keep her nerves under control – but her problems multiply rapidly as her flat receives a direct hit from a German bomber. The prisoners’ morale receives a boost as they are sent parcels of unusual gifts – which conceal vital escape equipment. Sawyer finally returns to Blighty and quickly develops suspicions about McGrade, while Ullmann learns about Rhett’s dependence on morphine.
On February 1 it was announced that the ITV1 mini-series Colditz are coming to DVD on March 28. On UK TV the series should get broadcaste the days before. Here’s the link to the news item at DVDTimes that also gives more information on the plot of the Drama starring Sophia Myles.
