Charlie Murphy and Martin McCann join 'Ripper Street'.
Season two of ‘Ripper Street’, currently filming in Dublin, continues to expand its cast with ‘Jump’ actor Martin McCann and Love/Hate’s Charlie Murphy, both past IFTA winners, set to feature in upcoming episodes.

Recent weeks have seen filming extend beyond Clancy Barracks, which doubles for police headquarters in Whitechapel, London, to the Natural History Museum on Merrion Row and North Great George’s Street.

Charlie Murphy won the IFTA for Best Actress at this year's awards; recently starred in BBC’s ‘The Village’; and will appear in ‘Quirke’, starring Gabriel Byrne, this autumn.

Martin McCann was nominated for an IFTA for his performance in ‘Jump’ this year and previously won the IFTA for Best Actor in 2011 for ‘Swansong: Story of Occi Byrne’.

He also starred in ‘Shadow Dancer’ and appeared in Steven Spielberg’s critically-acclaimed World War II mini-series ‘The Pacific’ in 2010.

Filming in Dublin on ‘Ripper Street’ will continue until 31st August and return to BBC screens in 2014.

Irish representation on the series has been strong with cast and crew including Charlene McKenna (‘Raw’, ‘Jump’); producer Ed Guiney; make-up artists Sharon Doyle and Eileen Buggy (both IFTA winners at this year’s ceremony); production designer Mark Geraghty (who also won an IFTA for his work on the series); costume designer Lorna Marie Mugan; and editor Helen Chapman.

'Ripper Street' is a co-production between Ireland’s Element Pictures and the UK’s Tiger Aspect Productions and Lookout Point.

“I quite like the challenge of writing characters without handles, for an audience to hold on to, you have to really work at keeping pace with them and go on the journey;“ Writer/director Antonia Campbell-Hughes discusses It Is In Us All
“We’ve tried to portray real life, real relationships, and all the complexity that comes with that;” Producer Collie McCarthy discusses his debut Netflix Original, I Used To Be Famous
