Jonas will be playing the role of ‘Ben’ a gardener, who falls for ‘Mia’ played by Chloë Sevigny (lead character) unaware she’s a transgender woman, let alone a ‘hit-man’. The series was filmed in and around the Manchester area back in the summer (July – August).
To read a synopsis of the story check out the Sky Atlantic website.
I’m really looking forward to this series! It will be the second time in a space of months that Jonas worked on a Paul Abbott project which can only be a good thing =) Apart from ‘Shameless’ Paul Abbott also created ‘State of Play’ (the series with John Simm , Philip Glennister, James McAvoy and David Morrissey) and the recent ‘Exile’ (BBC series also with John Simm).
