Shooting on BBC2 thriller ‘The Fall’ is to get underway next Monday (March 26) in various locations around Belfast with Irish actor Gerard McCarthy (Hollyoaks) the latest talent to join the cast.

The Belfast-based thriller is led by former ‘X Files’ actress Gillian Anderson, with Jakob Verbruggen (Code 37) directing a script by Allan Cubitt (The Runaway, Murphy’s Law). Five episodes in total will be shot with shooting set to last 10 to 11 weeks in total.

The series will be produced by UK production house Artists Studio. Stephen Wright will executive produce through BBC Northern Ireland, while the series is being funded from Northern Ireland Screen supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Set in Belfast, the psychological thriller will follow a serial killer who stalks his victims in and around the city and a detective superintendent DSI Gibson from the MET played by Anderson. McCarthy’s will play Kevin, though it is unclear yet as to the extent of his role.

Commenting on his role McCarthy, who recently completed filming on ‘Titanic: Blood & Steel’, said: “I'm very excited about working on ‘The Fall’. The scripts, by Allan Cubitt, are very special and our director Jakob Verbruggen has assembled a stellar cast of actors.”

Cast in the lead role, Gillian Anderson is no stranger to Northern Ireland having previously shot writer and director Pearse Elliott’s ‘The Mighty Celt’ in Belfast in 2005.
