Outnumbered and Cuckoo star Tyger Drew-Honey has landed a guest role on the upcoming fourth season of BBC One’s Death In Paradise.
Exact details of Tyger Drew-Honey’s role are being kept under wraps, but the former Outnumbered alum said he was delighted to be joining the cast of the BBC One drama. “Death in Paradise is very different from anything I’ve done before so it is the perfect choice as my first TV drama project since finishing Outnumbered. Filming on the sunny shores of Guadeloupe will certainly make a change from those leafy London suburbs that I’ve been used to!”
The series, created by Robert Thorogood, follows DI Humphrey Goodman and DS Camille Bordey as they investigate crimes on the tropical island of Saint Marie. Death In Paradise is produced Red Planet Pictures in association with BBC Worldwide and stars Kris Marshall, Sara Martins (Little White Lies), Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf) and Don Warrington (New Street Law). The show’s fourth season, which sees the addition of French actress Josephine Jobert, is currently filming on the island of Guadeloupe for an early 2015 premiere.
Other actors lined up for guest roles on the fourth season of Death In Paradise include Natalie Gumede (Strictly Come Dancing), Amy Nuttall (Downton Abbey), Will Mellor (Broadchurch), Rosie Cavaliero (A Young Doctor’s Notebook), Hetti Bywater (Eastenders), Simon Day (The Fast Show), Leo Staar (Call The Midwife), Don Gilet (Holby City), Katarina Cas (The Wolf Of Wall Street), William Ash (The Last Witch), David Bamber (What Remains), Claire Goose (Mount Pleasant), Sharon D Clarke (The Shadow Line), Ali Bastian (Hollyoaks), Susannah Fielding (The Knot) and Amanda Root (The Iron Lady).
“We are thrilled to be back on set in Guadeloupe for the fourth series of Death In Paradise and are excited by the twists and turns in store for viewers this series”, said Executive Producer Tim Key. We continue to work with a whole host of talented and popular faces as guest stars and I am thrilled with the calibre of talent we have this year. We also welcome the wonderful Josephine Jobert whose character, Florence, will provide fresh and captivating plot lines full of humour, intrigue and excitement.”
While Polly Hill, the BBC’s Head of Independent Drama, added: “Death In Paradise is a real hit with BBC One audiences and provides the perfect blend of drama, wit and sunshine in a beautiful Caribbean setting during the cold and wet winter months in the UK.”
