The Legend of Longwood

13 year old  Lucy Morton leads the cast of 3D family fantasy thriller The Legend of Longwood.

Newcomer Lucy (represented by A&J Management) stars as 12-year-old American girl, Mickey, who is destined to release a small Irish town and its people from an ancient curse.

To succeed, Mickey must redeem a ghostly Black Knight from his long quest and single-handedly save a magical herd of horses from a ruthless woman with evil plans.

Lucy previously played the role of 'Flora' in 'Turn of the Screw' at the Almeida Theatre.

15 year old Irish actor Lorcan Bonner plays Sean. Lorcan (represented by Young Artists Management in Dublin) made his professional acting debut in 2011 playing the title role in the feature film Milo.

The cast also includes Lorcan Cranitch, Thekla Reuten, Fiona Glascott, Sean Mahon and Miriam Margolyes.

The Dutch-Irish-German live-action film is written by Nadadja Kemper, directed by Lisa Mulcah and shooting took place in Wicklow County, Ireland, and Germany last year.

Julia Weber, head of sales at Global Screen, said, " ‘The Legend of Longwood’ has all the ingredients for a hit feature: beautiful horses, a magical world, adventure and a strong female hero to attract the kids, mystic settings, history, aristocracy, weddings and romance for the adults, and fanciful themes like magic, malediction, chivalry and black knights."

Tointon sisters join cast of Mr Selfridge

The Selfridge children are all grown up in the third series of Mr Selfridge, which picks up in 1919 just after the end of World War I.

In the new series which is about to start filming in London,  the role of Harry’s eldest daughter, Rosalie, (played by Poppy Lee Friar in Series 1 and 2) is taken over by Kara Tointon. Kara (represented by Curtis Brown) played Dawn Swann in Eastenders for four years and won Strictly Come Dancing in 2010.

Kara’s real-life sister, Hannah Tointon, plays her rebellious sister, Violette in a move that sees the sisters acting together for the first time. 26 year old Hannah (represented by Independent Talent) played Katy Fox in Hollyoaks and more recently starred in Switch on ITV2 and BBC's The Hour.

In the new ten-episode series Rosalie is set to marry the handsome son of trouble-making Russian princess Marie, played by Zoe Wanamaker. Serge is played by Leon Ockenden (Waterloo Road, Casualty, Heartbeat).

Sacha Parkinson (represented by Curtis Brown) also joins the cast to play Kitty Hawkins (Amy Beth Hayes) ambitious younger sister.

Filming is taking place on location in Greater London with a lavish replica of the 1919 Selfridge’s shop floor being recreated in a former carpet warehouse. The exterior of the store will be filmed in the historic Dockyard Chatham in Kent.

Kate Brooke (Ice Cream Girls, Making of a Lady) returns as the lead writer working alongside Kate O’Riordan (The Bad Mother’s Handbook, The Kindness of Strangers) and Helen Raynor (Baker Boys, Doctor Who).

 Lindy Woodhead, author of Shopping Seduction and Mr Selfridge, the book that inspired the series, continues in her role as advisor on retail history.
