EXCLUSIVE: ITV is adding some Fall talent to their upcoming drama Undeniable. I’ve learned that Irish actor Nick Lee has been cast in and filmed a role in the two-parter which hails from Chris Lang & TXTV and is being toplined by Peter Firth (Spooks) and Claire Goose (Mount Pleasant).
Lee, repped by The Lisa Richards Agency in Ireland and The Artists Partnership (formerly Ken McReddie Associates) in the UK, has been cast as DS Renwick, one of the police officers assigned to the investigation featured in the drama, which was shot on location in Dublin and County Wicklow, Ireland, late last year. He joins a cast which includes – in addition to Peter Firth and Claire Goose – Pippa Haywood, Felix Scott, Christina Bottomley and Sarah Winman. This is the latest major drama role for Nick Lee, who last year starred as journalist Ned Callan on the BBC Two drama series The Fall. His other credits include RTE’s Love/Hate, Sky1’s Moonfleet and TV3’s Jack Taylor.
Created by Lang, Undeniable tells the story of Jane Fielding (Claire Goose), whose mother Anne was murdered in 1991 while they were on a picnic in Long Mynd, Shropshire. Now, 23 years later, Jane locks eyes with a man that could be her mother’s killer: Andrew Bolton (Peter Firth). The Police’s Chief Investigating Officer Alison Hall (Pippa Haywood), however, remains sceptical and worries Jane is crumbling emotionally. Can she finally learn the truth about who killed her mother, and why? Undeniable is produced by TXTV with Jeremy Gwilt serving as the producer/executive producer. The drama is directed by John Strickland.
