DICK TURPIN: CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR NEW APPLE TV+ COMEDY
Further casting has been announced for Apple TV+'s new comedy-adventure series The Completely Made-Up Adventures Of Dick Turpin, led by comedian and The Great British Bake Off host Noel Fielding.
Fielding will star as Dick Turpin, the legendary British highwayman. In this irreverent retelling, Dick is the most famous, but least likely of highway robbers, whose success is defined mostly by his charm, showmanship and great hair.
Together with his gang of loveable rogues, Dick rides the highs and lows of celebrity — and does what he can to escape the clutches of the Thief Taker General. Further casting - revealed by British Comedy Guide - has been revealed.
Hugh Bonneville will play the Thief Taker General opposite Fielding. Also starring are Duayne Boachie as Honesty Courage, Asim Chaudry as Craig the Warlock, Tasmin Greig as Lady Helen Gwinear, Mark Heap as John Turpin, Joe Wilkinson as Geoggrey the Gaoler and Ellie White as Nell Brazier.
Joining them will be Noel Fielding's real-life brother Michael Fielding as Benny Turpin, Kiri Flaherty as Little Karen, Samuel Leakey as Christopher Wilde, Geoff McGivern as Lord Rookwood and Dolly Wells as Eliza Bean.
Guest stars across the series include Greg Davies, Jessica Hynes, Paul Kaye, Guz Khan, Diane Morgan, Connor Swindells, Laura Checkley, David Threlfall and Colin Hoult.
The Completely Made-Up Adventures Of Dick Turpin is produced for Apple TV+ by Big Talk Productions, part of ITV Studios.
