Acting legend Honor Blackman is to guest star in Gold’s You, Me & Them when it returns for a second series next year.
The sitcom stars Anthony Head and Eve Myles as Ed and Lauren who, despite their 25-plus year age gap. fall madly in love.
Blackman will play Rose, Ed’s vital and eccentric mother, who is quite ready to cause chaos between her son and his girlfriend given half a chance.
At the age of eighty, Rose has the tireless nature of a person a quarter her age and even though she seems harmless to Lauren, Ed warns her she will create turmoil.
Honor Blackman says: “I think they are lovely people, and a terrific team and I look forward to having fun with them. Anthony Head and Eve Myles have a wonderful relationship; I am going to see if I can rattle their cage a bit!”
The show, Gold’s first original sitcom, debuted to positive reviews last year. Filming for the second series is already underway.
Steve North, General Manager of Gold, commented, “Honor Blackman may be the same age as the Queen and it is 50 years since she played the infamous Pussy Galore in Goldfinger, but she is still beautiful, mesmerising and a legendary actress. I am delighted she is joining our brilliant cast and the eccentric You, Me & Them family.”
Jimmy Mulville, Executive Producer, Hat Trick added, “We’re thrilled to have such an icon of British film join the cast of You Me and Them. Honor plays a fantastically naughty and funny character who is definitely not growing old gracefully”.
