GRACEPOINT: UK's Georgina Rylance Signs On As Hotelier Gemma

UK actress Georgina Rylance has signed on to Fox TV's Gracepoint, joining a cast that includes David Tennant, Anna Gunn and Nick Nolte. The ten episode event series is a remake of the award winning ITV drama Broadchurch and centres on the impact of the murder of a young boy on a sleepy Californian coastal community. 

Georgina (Dinotopia, Poirot) will play Gemma, a flirty woman who owns the town’s hotel where Detective Emmett Carver (David Tennant) is staying, and with everything going on in Gracepoint she could be bankrupt by the end of the year. David Tennant's character is based on his original Broadchurch role of DI Alec Hardy. Georgina and David have previously worked together in the 2004 BBC TV political drama The Deputy.

Last night it was announced that Darcy Laurie (Chronicles Of Riddick) had also signed on as forensics expert Hugo Garcia.

Gracepoint begins shooting on Vancouver Island, BC. on Tuesday 28th January. Locations include Oak Bay Village, Brentwood Bay Marina and the Sidney Waterfront. Production is expected to continue until late May and the series is due to air on Fox as part of the 2014-15 season. Gracepoint is a co-production by Kudos and Shine America and original Broadchurch series creator Chris Chibnall is among the executive producers.
