More names added to cast of Broadchurch


Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy, Eve Myles and Phoebe Waller-Bridge will join the cast of multi-award winning Broadchurch for the new series, broadcaster ITV, and production companies Kudos and Imaginary Friends confirmed today.

 Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated Marianne, who trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, will play a leading role in the new series. Marianne will begin filming for the new series shortly.

 "We're over the moon to have wooed Marianne back from Los Angeles to join us in Broadchurch,” said creator and writer Chris Chibnall in the week when the drama achieved a hat trick of BAFTA Awards for the programme, and stars Olivia Colman and David Bradley.

 “Marianne is one of Britain's finest actresses, so it's an honour and a coup for us. It’s a role written specifically for her and I would've wept for months if she'd turned us down. Luckily she didn't and her character is going to make an indelible impact on the world of Broadchurch."

 Also joining the cast in a key role is acclaimed film and television actor James D’Arcy, who is known for his roles in Cloud Atlas, Hitchcock and The Making of a Lady.

Eve Myles (Torchwood, Little Dorrit, Frankie) will also play a central role in the new series.

"As if we didn't have enough fabulous actresses, it's a thrill to be joined by Wales' finest, Eve Myles. Having worked together on Torchwood, it's a joy to be able to welcome her to Broadchurch. And anyone who's seen Phoebe Waller-Bridge perform knows she's already on the way to being a superstar. We're lucky to have them both on board," added Chris Chibnall.

The new additions to the hugely successful ensemble cast will star alongside David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Arthur Darvill and Charlotte Rampling as the drama continues to intrigue.
