jonas t4 icon YAY BBC ‘s new TV film The Whale with Jonas Armstrong in the lead has now been officially confirmed by the press!

So past weekend I was able to tell you that Jonas is playing First Mate – Owen Chase and today thanks to the very lovely Luke from Custard Tv can provide you with a picture from the set! 😀

Joe Armstrong who was his co-star in Robin Hood will play Lawrence, and you can find more info about his character if you click on the links I provided HERE
UPDATE 09/04 : Joe has now been replaced by Jolyon Coy you can read about the cast change at: http://www.tvwise.co.uk/2013/04/joe-armstrong-exits-bbc-ones-the-whale/

It’s very interesting that the project is produced by Mike Dormer who worked on Paul Abbott’s Clocking Off as Jonas starred in two Paul Abbott projects back to back last year: Hit and Miss & Twenty8k. Furthermore the co-producer John Chapman worked on The Street, and Jonas starred as Nick the wounded soldier returning from Afghanistan in Series 3. So Jonas must have left a strong impression to be cast as Chase in The Whale! Great stuff! 😀
