GANGS OF LONDON: FURTHER CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR THIRD SERIES OF SKY DRAMA
New players join the battle for the soul of London, as further casting announced in the third instalment of the explosive Sky and AMC+ Original Gangs of London.
Andrew Koji (Warrior, Bullet Train), Richard Dormer (Fortitude, Game of Thrones), T’Nia Miller (Fall of the House of Usher, Years and Years), Phil Daniels (I Hate Suzie, House of the Dragon) and Ruth Sheen (Another Year, Brassic) are to join the cast of the BAFTA-winning Sky and AMC+ Original series produced by Pulse Films.
Andrew Koji bursts onto our screens as an enigmatic, unnamed assassin at the heart of the unfolding mystery across the series, but who is he working for, and what are his true motives?
Cornelius Quinn, played by Richard Dormer is a face from the past whose arrival awakens old rivalries for Marian Wallace and Ed Dumani. While T’nia Miller takes on the role of the formidable new Mayor of London set to wreak havoc for our Gangs. Also joining the cast are Phil Daniels and Ruth Sheen who play a married couple entrenched in the old school London gangster values.
Ex-undercover cop turned gangster Elliot is now operating as a top-level criminal alongside the Dumanis, but their business is thrown into chaos when their shipment of cocaine is spiked, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of civilians all over London.
The ensuing chaos attracts attention from the authorities, putting the gangs of London under pressure like never before and the ripple effects - both personal and professional - will have devastating consequences for everyone from the Wallaces, to Luan, to Lale and the street gangs.
This was a targeted attack and it’s only the beginning, but the question is - who did it and why?
Previously announced cast reprising their roles this season include Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù as Elliot Carter, Joe Cole as Sean Wallace, Michelle Fairley in the role of Marian Wallace, Lucian Msamati as Ed Dumani, and Brian Vernel as Billy Wallace. All returning to the action thriller are: Pippa Bennett-Warner as Shannon Dumani, Narges Rashidi as Lale, Asif Raza Mir as Asif Afidi, Orli and Eri Shuka as Luan and Mirlinda Dushaj, Jahz Armando as Saba, and Fady Elsayed as Faz.
Directors Tessa Hoffe (Crossfire, Kin) and Farren Blackburn (The Winter King, A Discovery of Witches) also join the creative team for Gangs of London Series 3, working alongside Lead Director and Executive Producer, Kim Hong Sun and Lead Writer and Executive Producer Peter McKenna.
