News round-up: see Zo in epic Britannia trailer; Girlfriends filming; and Gawn rehearses new play

31 August 2017 22:26

First-look Britannia trailer released

Sky Atlantic has released the long-awaited and fabulous! trailer for historical drama series Britannia, plus an eye-catching photo of Zo as formidable Celtic Queen Antedia (click here for a bigger version).

Our first glimpse of the show's epic vision of ancient Britain, its fierce inhabitants and similarly fierce Roman invaders suggests that Britannia will be tense and atmospheric, with stunning cinematography and elements of the supernatural.

The trailer has met with a hugely positive response from Zo's fans and peers alike, with fellow actress Kim Cattrall and director Metin Hseyin among those praising her.

Zoe's Britannia co-stars include David Morrissey, Kelly Reilly and Mackenzie Crook. The series will premiere in Cannes on 16 October. As a recent press release from Sky makes clear, we can expect to see Britannia on TV 'early next year'. It'll be shown on Sky Atlantic in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Italy, as well as on streaming service NOW TV. US fans will be able to watch Britannia via Amazon Prime Video.

Girlfriends filming passes the half-way mark

Rollem Productions has revealed that filming for the last three episodes in ITV's six-part Girlfriends, another hotly-anticipated drama series starring Zo, began on 23 August. The programme is being made in and around Leeds and York.

Zo will play Gail, part of a troubled trio of friends, in Girlfriends, which also stars Phyllis Logan and Miranda Richardson.

Look out for it on ITV in 2018.
