Young Brits land roles in 24

With filming commenced in London on 24: Live Another Day, opportunities have arisen for British actors to nab roles in the Emmy-award winning US series, including Stephen Fry as the British Prime Minister. The new European-set adventure follows heroic agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), taking up his story several years following the events of the final season back in 2010. Once again, viewers will join Jack on a pulse-pounding ride in real time.

Attack The Block star John Boyega (represented in the UK by Identity Agency Group) will join the series laying a computer tech who flies drones for the military. John has recently been cast to star in the Jesse Owens biopic 'Race'.

Charles Furness (represented by A&J Management) has landed the role of Peter. Charles was a graduate of the inaugural NYT Rep season and recently starred in BBC drama The Whale alongside John Boyega. He'll also be seen this spring in the new BBC adaptation of Jamaica Inn.

Mandeep Dhillon (represented by Piers Nimmo Management) has also been cast. She stars as Saz in the popular BBC Three comedy series Some Girls.

24: Live Another Day is currently shooting in Britain, and will air on Sky 1 later this year.
