Earlier today [30 April] the agent page of My Mad Fat Diary actress, Sharon Rooney – the star best known for playing troubled teen Rae Earl – listed the 24 year-old as part of the Sherlock series 3 cast.

However since the news broke on twitter the Sherlock listing has been removed. Presumably because the exact nature of the role is yet to be announced by the BBC. However, according to the picture below she is listed as playing a character called Laura in the first episode of the series titled, ‘The Empty Hearse’ which will be directed by Jeremy Lovering.

Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman is currently filming on location and is set to air in the Autumn.
