By October 22, 2017 Keeping Faith, Projects, Updates, Wales

Eve’s latest project, Un Bore Mercher / Keeping Faith will be premiering on S4C on Sunday 5th November 2017!

This is the Welsh speaking version of the television series, the English speaking version being expected on BBC Wales in January 2018.

Here is a short synopsis of the programme as provided by BAFTA Cymru.

Faith discovers that her home in the picturesque town (Carmarthenshire), which is a haven for her and her family, also harbours dark secrets which threaten their future. In pursuit of the truth, Faith steps out of her comfortable existence, as a devout mother and wife, and becomes an uncompromising detective – battling for her family in her quest to discover the truth. For the first time, she is willing to take risks, and she finds strength to seek out the truth.

As well as featuring Eve Myles in her first ever Welsh language role, the cast includes some of Wales’ best-loved talent, including Matthew Gravelle (Broadchurch, 35 Diwrnod, Y Gwyll/Hinterland), Mali Harries (Y Gwyll/Hinterland), Mark Lewis Jones (Byw Celwydd, Stella, National Treasure) and Aneirin Hughes (Y Gwyll/Hinterland).

And here is one of the first short teaser-trailers released for the upcoming series!

Eve has also recently done an interview for Wales Online about her new role:

“It’s a long story,” said 39-year-old Eve, during the quickest of chats between some intense, back-to-back filming.

Pondering for a moment, she adds: “Maybe, three years ago, Pip [Broughton, the director] got in touch with me about the part and was very excited about it and very dedicated to it, and would love me to play the part of Faith.

“She explained to me it was going to be Welsh and English and I don’t speak Welsh – I didn’t speak Welsh,” she adds with a laugh after realising she’s been speaking Welsh for the last few hours on set.

The rest of which can be read, in full, here.

A Very English Scandal

By October 19, 2017 News, Projects

Eve will be starring in a new three-part drama about the true story of the first British politician to stand trial for conspiracy and incitement to murder. Actors Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw take the lead roles in this 2018 drama directed by Russell T Davies.

It is the late 1960s, homosexuality has only just been decriminalised and Jeremy Thorpe, the leader of the Liberal party and the youngest leader of any British political party in a hundred years, has a secret he’s desperate to hide. As long as his ex-lover Norman Scott is around, Thorpe’s brilliant career is at risk. Thorpe schemes and deceives – until he can see only one way to silence Scott for good. The trial of Jeremy Thorpe changed society forever, illuminating the darkest secrets of the Establishment. The Thorpe affair revealed such breath-taking deceit and corruption that, at the time, hardly anyone dared believe it could be true.

A Very English Scandal will premiere on BBC One in 2018.

Broadchurch Series 3 Teaser

By January 2, 2017 Broadchurch, News, Updates

ITV have released the first teaser for series 3 of Broadchurch, featuring a quote famously from Tess of the D’Urbervilles – but what does this all mean?

Of course, we have no idea as to whether Eve will be in this series at all – could
Chibnall really just leave the story of Claire Ripley and Lee Ashworth with them going to prison? We’ll have to anxiously wait and see…

A couple of actual clips from the new series can be seen here, in ITV’s ‘What’s to come in 2017’ video:

The Radio Times have perfectly summed up all we know about series 3, as it appears to be more secretive than ever!

The new series will deliver a brand new case for Miller and Hardy with the detectives teaming up once again, this time to investigate a serious sexual assault and its consequences as the drama’s Dorset community comes under scrutiny. Based on a year of research, the drama’s last series will look at the emotional cost to everyone involved and the irreparable damage to friendships and relationships.

“This is the final chapter of Broadchurch,” said writer Chris Chibnall who will take over as showrunner on Doctor Who in 2017. “We have one last story to tell, featuring both familiar faces and new characters. I hope it’s a compelling and emotional farewell to a world and show that means so much to me.”

*We will keep posting updates about Broadchurch until we know whether Eve is in it for sure or not.*
