‘Spooks‘ is a show that has always been shrouded in mystery. Beth Bailey is not returning in the new series. At present we have no evidence as to why this is the case. We can only hope that one day it will be revealed.
Visit Ian Wylie’s blog to read the official press release for series 10 of ‘Spooks‘. It will focus on Harry Pearce’s past and his relationship with Ruth Evershed. A host of new characters are joining the cast – but there’s shocking news about our favourite character played by Sophia Myles: Beth Bailey has been decommissioned!
What are your thoughts? I was really looking forward to series 10 because I felt the character of Beth Bailey with her interesting background was never fully developed last year. And now the producers have given away all chance of ever doing so.
While ‘Spooks‘ fans are busy researching information about filming for series 10 which is rumoured to have commenced last Sunday – we have no solid information on this or Sophia’s schedule at the moment – the show’s 9th series that introduces the character of Beth Bailey played by Sophia Myles is coming to Australia. It begins at Saturday, April 2 at 8:30pm on ABC1 (source).

Hey everyone! This is a special opportunity to win 2 tickets to go see the indie flick “Etienne!” in Zürich, Switzerland. Now why would you want to do that? Because – are you ready? – the film features a short cameo appearance by Sophia Myles!
“Etienne!” tells the story of Richard who takes his beloved friend, a dwarf hamster named Etienne, on a bicycle road trip after he learns that his pocket pet is sick and has only a few days to live.
Director Jeff Mizushima created a movie that he calls “a film about the little things in life.” It’s produced by Giacun Caduff who met Sophia in 2004 while being her assistant on the set of “Art School Confidential“. They have since remained friends and Sophia taking part in his film was to help Giacun’s career as an up-and-coming producer. And here’s another interesting tidbit for you: while Giacun was Sophia’s assistant he was the person who actually first contacted me on Sophia’s behalf – and us both being Swiss is really one of those funny coincidences in life.
In the spring of 2008, when the Etienne! film team was on their way to San Francisco to record a few pick-up shots, Sophia phoned Giacun with the good news that she’d act in a short scene that they had talked about adding to the hamster film. He and Jeff drove their van on a detour up the Hollywood Hills and, equipped with a 16mm camera, Sophia’s scene was filmed at Lake Hollywood Park. It features hamster Etienne, lead-actor Richard Vallejos and Sophia who is credited in the movie ‘as herself’.

I myself had the fortune of seeing a special advance screening of this heartwarming movie in May 2009 and can definitely recommend it! Can you make it to Zürich, Switzerland this Friday? I have 1 pair of tickets to give away for the premiere that takes place at the Arthouse Movie cinema on December 10, 2010 at 10pm. To participate, send an email to mia [at] sophiamyles.org or fill out this contact form. Tickets have to be picked up at the theatre by December 9 – 10:30pm the latest.
“Etienne!” won the “Director to Watch” Award when first screened at CineVegas Film Festival back in 2009 and went on to become a critics darling and audience favorite at numerous other fests. It’ll be out on VOD and DVD in the US shortly. Switzerland is blessed with a theatrical run at Arthouse Movie in Zürich.
