Before True Blood, Lara Pulver Was Known For Her Role on the BBC TV Series, Spooks:
Truebies will remember Lara Pulver as the fairy, Claudine Crane. But before Lara joined the cast of the HBO vampire series, she was known for her role as Erin Watts, the head of the counter-terrorism division for MI5 in the long running BBC TV series, Spooks. This TV series was so loved in the UK that it will now be bought to the big screen via a movie adaptation of the TV series.
Spooks: The Greater Good will also star Peter Firth who will be reprising his role of Harry Pearce, the head of MI5. Kit Harrington (of Game of Thrones fame) will join the cast as Will Holloway, a former agent who is brought back to London from Moscow. The storyline (according to Radio Times) is as follows:
Firth played MI5 head Harry Pearce in every single episode of the drama. We won’t be finding Harry in an especially happy place, though. He is “disgraced and forced to resign” after a terrorist escapes from MI5 custody and “disappears one night off a bridge into the Thames” … Will [Holloway] must decide whether to help Harry or turn his rogue ex-boss in…
Alongside Lara Pulver, Tim McInnerny will reprise his role as the chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. Also starring will be David Harewood, Jennifer Ehle, Tuppence Middleton and Elyes Gabel.
Spooks: The Greater Good was shot earlier this year and will hit UK cinemas on 8th May 2015. Let us know if you plan on seeing this by commenting below!
