The new BBC thriller series Vigil, starring Outlander star Lauren Lyle, is coming!
As we teased in a previous article, scottish actress Lauren Lyle earned a role in the new thriller series from Bodyguard and Line Of Duty producers, Vigil. Let’s give a look at this new BBC product coming up in the first official trailer!
The BBC limited series premieres on August 29!
Vigil will tell the fictional story of how the disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death on-board a Trident nuclear submarine create conflict between the police, the Royal Navy, and intelligence services. DCI Amy Silva spearheads the investigation, which strikes at the heart of Britain’s nuclear deterrent.
Main cast includes Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster), Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones), Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard), Martin Compston (Line of Duty, Mary Queen of Scots), Paterson Joseph (Timeless), Connor Swindells (Sex Education), Adam James (Doctor Foster, Grantchester), and Gary Lewis (Outlander).
The series, at the restart of production although in the middle of pandemic, expanded its cast with many additions. Stephen Dillane (Game Of Thrones), Lolita Chakrabarti (Riviera), Daniel Portman (Game Of Thrones), Lorne MacFadyen (Grantchester), Stephen McCole (Save Me), Tom Gill (Peterloo), Lois Chimimba (Top Boy), Anita Vettesse (The Loch), Bobby Rainsbury (Call The Midwife), Cristian Ortega (Beats) and Lauren Lyle (Outlander).
There’s no confirmed air date for Vigil just yet but the series is currently in post-production. RadioTimes.com predicts a launch at some point in the summer – or perhaps it could be held for the broadcaster’s autumn line-up.
Lauren Lyle is one of the brightest stars of her generation!
Among the brightest up-and-coming actresses of her generation, Lauren Lyle also recently earned a leading role in ITV’s upcoming drama series Karen Pirie.
