“The Break II” – Cast announced

An array of young and upcoming stars have been cast for “The Break II” – a collaboration between BBC Writersroom and BBC Drama Production of five original short films for BBC Three, written by up-and-coming BAME (Black, Asian, and minority ethnic) writing talent from across the UK.

Filming is currently taking place in Birmingham.

The Five distinctive short films will cover everything from a young man fretting about the imminent arrival of his first child to a young woman’s foolhardy mistake putting everything on track in her life, at risk.

The talent line-up includes:

Charlotte Beaumont (“Broadchurch,” “Waterloo Road,” “Balcony”) who will star in “Etching,” written by Emteaz Hussian.

Leonie Elliott (“Danny and the Human Zoo,” “Black Mirror”) star of “Scotch Bonnett” by Chino Odimba.

James Floyd (“My Brother the Devil,” “The Infidel,” “Tormented”) star of “The Package” by Maya Sondhi.

Adelle Leonce (“Ordinary Lies,” “Shameless,” “Vera”) star of “Tits” by Berri George

Joivan Wade (“Doctor Who,” “EastEnders,” “Mandem on the Wall”) star of “Special Delivery” by Nathaniel Price.

Further cast includes Leah Hackett (“Doctors,” “Hollyoaks,” “4 O’clock Club”) who will star alongside Jovian Wade in “Special Delivery” and Emer Kenny (“EastEnders,” “Pram Face,” “Eric & Ernie”) who will be alongside Adelle Leonce in “Tits.”

The short-filmed monologues will be on BBC Three around February 2017.
