Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil, Inkheart, Love Actually, Eragon) has been cast to play Luther’s new love interest in series three of Neil Cross’s Luther staring Idris Elba . which started filming this week.
Luther started filming this week, and he is back under intense pressure, with two conflicting crimes to investigate and a ruthless ex-copper determined to bring him down.
Luther’s life is his job; that is, until love crosses his path and offers him a chance of happiness. Guillory plays Mary, who works in a vintage clothes shop. She meets Luther in a chance encounter.
Guillory says: “You realise why Luther is so good when you read Neil Cross’s scripts, and then you meet Idris and understand what ‘untamed’ means. There is no other set I’d rather be on, and I love the disastrous fun of being Mary Day, the right girl in the wrong place.”
Idris Elba, playing Luther, adds: “I want to thank the fans for waiting so patiently for the new season. We’re thrilled to deliver it to you. Here comes John!”
The third series of Luther is a 4 x 60-minute series for transmission on BBC One next year.
