Leo Suter, who recurred as Drummond on ITV’s Victoria, has joined the cast for the second season of BBC Three’s drama series Clique, twhich has now begun filming in Edinburgh.
Details of his character are being kept under wraps. Suter joins a returning cast that includes Synnove Karlsen as Holly, Sophia Brown as Louise and Rachel Hurd-Wood as Rachel.
Other cast additions for season two include Barney Harris (The Hollow Crown), Imogen King (Darkest Hour), Stuart Campbell (Outlander), Izuka Hoyle (Mary, Queen of Scots) and newcomers and recent graduates Jyuddah Jaymes and Nicholas Nunn.
The second season of Clique follows Holly as she finds herself embroiled in a clique of freewheeling renegade boys. When they become embroiled in a campus-wide scandal, Holly is torn between the kinship she feels with them and the unnerving sense that something darker is at play. Holly will soon find herself caught between two camps. And from within the secure unit, psychopath Rachel is still keeping her obsessive gaze on Holly.
The show’s six episode second season is again being penned by series creator Jess Brittain. “It’s great to have the opportunity to return to the world of Clique to tell another story”, she said. “I love writing for new and exciting young actors and can’t think of a better place than BBC Three to do that.” Clique is produced by a Balloon Entertainment and BBC Studios, with U.S. network Pop TV serving as the co-producer. The executive producers are Jess Brittain, Bryan Elsley and Dave Evans for Balloon, Tom Sherry for BBC Studios and Gaynor Holmes for BBC. It was re-commissioned by the BBC’s Controller of Drama Commissioning Piers Wenger and BBC Three Controller Damian Kavanagh.
