Young Escape Artist Star Talks About Working With David Tennant

Twelve year old actor Gus Barry, who is currently to be seen in the BBC One thriller The Escape Artist has had good things to say about his on-screen father David Tennant. Gus plays Jamie Burton, the son of junior barrister Will Burton, played by David. 

He said: “It was really fun working with David. He was really nice and even gave me some tips."

There have been some emotional scenes for Gus; as the Burton family come under attack, Jamie's mother Kate (Ashley Jensen) is murdered by psychopath Liam Foyle (Toby Kebbell), leaving the boy and his father to pick up the pieces of their life. However, David and Gus ensured that it wasn't all tension on set and they made time to relax.

“At one point when we were not needed on set we started playing the game Temple Rush on his phone,” explains Gus.

The final part of The Escape Artist can be seen on Tuesday 12th November at 9pm on BBC One.
