EXCLUSIVE: The Fall actress Valene Kane, co-star of upcoming Sundance movie Sonja: The White Swan, has joined the cast of UK crime-thriller series Gangs Of London, created by The Raid director Gareth Evans and his regular DoP Matt Flannery.
Valene’s character Jacqueline Robinson belongs to one of the series’ key families. She is daughter to Game Of Thrones star Michelle Fairley’s character and sister to the character played by Joe Cole (A Prayer Before Dawn).
The Nun filmmaker Corin Hardy is directing three episodes of the Cinemax and Sky Atlantic gangland thriller which is produced by Pulse Films. Set in contemporary London as it is being torn apart by power struggles involving several international gangs, the ten-part series begins as the head of one criminal gang is assassinated and the power vacuum threatens the fragile peace between the other underworld organizations. Cast also includes Sope Dirisu (Humans).
Irish actress Kane is currently starring in BBC2 drama Death And The Nightingales. She will next be seen on the big screen at the Sundance Film Festival where she co-stars in Anne Sewitsky’s Sonja: The White Swan. She is repped by United Agents, ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
