From Down Under comes brand new drama show Glitch. The six part Australian series, which is set in the fictional small town of Yoorana, starts Tuesday 15 December on M-Net Edge.
In the middle of the night, Senior Constable James Hayes gets called out to the local cemetery. There he makes a chilling discovery: Six people have returned from the dead, in perfect health, with no memory of their identities or their former lives.
While several of the actors are well-known in their home country, they are likely unfamiliar to South African audiences. Here, then, is a brief introduction to the cast of Glitch.
Patrick Brammall (Hayes) has a theatre background, having acted in Death of a Salesman and The Importance of Being Earnest, among others. He has appeared in several television series and made his silver screen debut in 2010 with acclaimed romantic comedy Griff the Invisible.
Emma Booth (Kate Willis) has more extensive international experience, and has appeared opposite Michael Fassbender, Clive Owen, Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez. She recently completed filming on God of Egypt with Gerard Butler and fellow Australian Geoffrey Rush.
Genevieve O’Reilly (Dr. Elishia McKeller) similarly has an international reputation, with television roles including Midsomer Murders and Law and Order: UK. Her film roles include appearances in the final two The Matrix films and The Young Victoria, in which Emily Blunt played the lead.
Young actress Emily Barclay (Sarah Hayes) has had numerous theatre, television and film roles and has won several awards for her acting, including a British Independent Film Award for Most Promising Newcomer.
