Samatha Womack (EastEnders), Nigel Harmon (EastEnders) and Nicola Millbank (Mr Selfridge) have joined the cast of Sky Living’s dramedy series Mount Pleasant for its upcoming third season. The 8 episode third season of Mount Pleasant was commissioned late last year and is currently in production, with Sky Living eyeing a summer premiere.
Womack has been cast in the series as Tanya and Harman as Bradley, a thirty-something couple who move to Mount Pleasant bringing with them some ‘Down South’ mystique and glamour guaranteed to entertain, intrigue and set tongues wagging amongst the residents of The Close. Millbank has been cast as Ella, Tanya and Bradley’s daughter who is blessed with good looks, style and joie de vivre.
Created by Sarah Hooper, Mount Pleasant follows the daily lives of Lisa, her husband, her family and her friends. The series stars Sally Lindsay as Lisa, Daniel Ryan as Dan, Pauline Collins as Sue, Bobby Ball as Barry, Angela Griffin as Shelley, Sian Reeves as Bianca, Liza Tarbuck as Kate, Owen McDonnell as Jack, Ainsley Howard as Denise, Robson Green as Chris and George Sampson as Gary, Bianca’s step son. The show originally began its life on Sky1 before jumping to Sky Living earlier this year for season 2. In season 3, Dan and Lisa couldn’t be happier. What could possibly shake their cosy little world to its foundations? Lisa’s forging a new career for herself – working in partnership with Fergus which might just make Dan feel a little excluded. Tanya’s also feeling neglected by Bradley so it’s not long before she’s fluttering her eyelashes at Dan.
Speaking of joining the cast Samantha Womack said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of Mount Pleasant, such a popular and well-loved series. I can’t wait to get stuck in to playing the part of Tanya who is sure to create some waves in The Close.”
While Nigel Harman added: “Bradley’s a great character, a real wide boy whose clearly got something to hide. He and Tanya are definitely going to stir things up in Mount Pleasant but whether that’s for the better or worse you’ll have to wait and see”
