Paul Nicholls, Emma Rigby and Heida Reed are to guest star in ‘Death in Paradise’.
The 36-year-old actor – who is best known for his roles in ‘Holby City’, ‘The C Word’ and ‘Law & Order: UK’ is one of a number of stars who has signed up to appear in the fifth series of the BBC One drama.
He said: “I’m very excited to have the opportunity to work with the fantastic cast and crew on the upcoming series of ‘Death in Paradise’. I play a fashion photographer in my episode which is very different from many of my previous roles so was a great challenge. Filming in Guadeloupe was incredible too. We had so much fun!”
Blonde bombshell Emma, who most recently starred alongside ‘We’re the Millers’ and ‘The Maze Runner’ actor Will Poulter in ‘Plastic’, and ‘Poldark’ beauty Heida will also be making guest appearances as Kris Marshall returns as Detective Inspector Humphrey Goodman on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie.
Other guest stars lined up for the fifth series include former ‘Downton Abbey’ actor Julien Ovenden, ‘Game of Thrones’ Charlotte Hope and ‘Doctor Who’s Madame Vastra actress Neve McIntosh.
Executive producer Tim Key said: “We are thrilled to be back in Guadeloupe for the fifth series of ‘Death In Paradise’ and delighted to have such great talent involved in the show. The new series promises more twists, romances and shocks for viewers with some of our most ambitious stories yet. From deep-sea divers who get in over their heads to political scandals with deadly consequences, there’s something for everyone.”
The new series will air in early 2016.
There is a vast amount of British talent in the acting industry these days and that has most certainly been proven by the 2015 Oscar nominations, with a large number of British stars up for awards this year. However, while there are a lot of British stars who have become very well-known in Hollywood in recent years, there are some others who are still working hard to prove themselves in the acting industry.
One such British star is the English actress Emma Rigby, who rose to stardom playing the role of Hannah Ashworth in the British soap Hollyoaks, before leaving the show to try to get some more challenging projects and prove her acting talent. Since leaving Hollyoaks, Emma has enjoyed a relative amount of success, taking on some interesting and exciting acting projects along the way.
With Emma Rigby continuing her rise in Hollywood, there have been some fans calling for the actress to land some bigger and better roles in the coming years and we have no doubt that she has what it takes to mix it with the best that Hollywood has to offer. We think the ideal role for Emma to continue her progress in Hollywood would be as a future Bond Girl, which could open plenty more doors for the star.
Unfortunately, if we were to ever get to see Emma Rigby as a Bond Girl, we would have to wait a while, as the new James Bond movie Spectre has already confirmed its casting, with actresses Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci landing roles in the film. We have no doubt that Emma has the talent and the looks to become a huge success in Hollywood and we hope to see her realising her potential in the future.
