Hidden actress Séainín Brennan has joined cast of BBC Two thriller ‘The Fall,’ starring Gillain Anderson as DSI Gibson and Once Upon A Time actor Jamie Dornan.

Currently filming on location in Belfast, the five-part pyschological drama is penned by Allan Cubitt (Murphy’s Law, Prime Suspect). Irish actress Brennan will play Liz Tyler, the target of a serial killer Paul Sector, played by Jamie Dornan, with Anderson’s character seconded from the London MET Police to hunt him down.

The cast also includes Hollyoaks actor Gerard McCarthy as a character called Kevin, however the nature of the role has been kept under wraps – but is described as a recurring role.

Séainín Brennan says: “I am thrilled and excited about taking on the role of Liz Tyler, it’s an emotionally-charged performance which takes the character, and the audience, on an emotional rollercoaster that will grip and enthrall lovers of quality drama.”

Adding: “Allan Cubitt is such a brilliant writer, so to be given the chance to play one of his characters is a career highlight for me. I have had the honour of working with some amazing actors at the top of their craft so it will be a huge honour working with Gillian, Jamie and the rest of the fantastic cast on The Fall.”

The Fall will air on BBC Two later this year.
