Anne Marie Duff
Irish actress Anne Marie Duff (The Magdalene Sisters, Garage) has landed a role in Mammoth Screen’s epic BBC Two drama/HBO miniseries ‘Parade’s End’, with co-stars including Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona).

The five-part series has been adapted by playwright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Brazil, Shakespeare in Love) from a quartet of novels by Ford Madox Ford. Directed by BAFTA winning filmmaker Susanna White (Bleak House, Jane Eyre, Nanny McPhee), the series is set in the early twentieth century and centres on English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens (Cumberbatch), his wife Sylia (Hall) and young suffragette Valentine Wannop (Adelaide Clemens).

IFTA winning actress Duff will join the all star cast which boasts names such as Rupert Everett (The Importance of Being Earnest), Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire), Clare Higgins (The Golden Compass), Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) and Miranda Richardson (Made In Dagenham). Duff won an IFTA for her performance in Channel 4 ‘Shameless’ in 2004, and has been nominated for IFTA awards a further four times for her work in ‘Nowhere Boy’, ‘Garage’, ‘The Virgin Queen’ and again for ‘Shameless’. Details on Duff’s role have yet to be confirmed.

The series is currently filming in Belgium and is produced by Oscar and BAFTA-winning David Parfitt (Shakespear in Love, The Madness of King George) and Selwyn Roberts (Longitude). Michele Buck, Damien Timmer and Tom Stoppard are executive producers for Mammoth Screen, Piers Wenger for the BBC.
