Julian will star as Adam in the BBC drama, Man in an Orange Shirt. The casting details and an official synopsis were released today. Looking forward to this project!

Casting for the drama was announced today, with Redgrave and young actress Joanna Vanderham cast to play the same role, 60 years apart.

The series will also star Julian Morris (New Girl), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), , Oliver Jackson Cohen (Mr Selfridge) and David Gyasi (Interstellar).

Further cast includes Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey), Julian Sands (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Killing Fields), Angel Coulby (Merlin), Charlie Wernham (Bad Education), Tommy Bastow (Angus Thongs & Perfect Snogging), and newcomer James Godden.

A synopsis explains: “Two love stories, sixty years apart, chart the challenges and huge change to gay lives from the Second World War to the present: In 1944, British Army Captain Michael Berryman (Cohen) meets war artist Thomas March (McArdle) in Southern Italy while chaos reigns all around them.

“Despite having a young fiancé, Flora (Vanderham), waiting at home for him, straight-laced Michael finds himself falling for Thomas’ bohemian charms.

“In 2017, an ageing Flora (Redgrave) looks on as her grandson, Adam (Morris), tentatively forms a relationship with his client Steve (Gyasi) in a more accepting world.

“But while the external obstacles have fallen away, a minefield of internalised issues and dangerous temptations still line the road to happiness.”

Hand of God is going to be two and out at Amazon.

The streaming service will wrap the dramatic thriller starring Ron Perlman with its second season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Season two, announced in December, will return at a yet-to-be announced date in 2017.

From Burn Notice‘s Ben Watkins, Hand of God marked director Marc Forster’s TV debut. The drama stars Ron Perlman as a hard-living, law-bending married judge who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart. He begins to rely on visions and messages he believes are being sent by God through his ventilator-bound son. Dana Delany co-stars as the judge’s wife and Garret Dillahunt as a born-again sociopath whose violent tendencies are exploited by the judge.

Julian attended the Landon Ross: Landon Ross: ARTIfACT exhibition opening at LAXART yesterday in Los Angeles. I have added high-quality photos into the gallery.

Pretty Little Liars EP, Marlene King, has confirmed that Julian will be back on the 7th season of the show.

It’s still unclear in which episode we’ll be seeing Wren again, but Julian’s IMDB page states it will be 7×10, entitled The DArkest Knight. I’ll update here when official details are out.

Tell me a bit about FELT. 

It’s really exciting. Ridley Scott is producing, Peter Landesman is directing and it stars Liam Neeson and Diane Lane. I also think, as far as moment in history, it’s obviously one of huge significance but also speaks to things that I personally believe in, like freedom of speech and the power and importance of an effective press. And I also think it’s good timing while we have this election to remind us what’s at stake when we elect our government officials. It shows us how we need to have responsibility in choosing our leaders.

Has your family or cultural background played a role in your pursuit of acting at all?

Not in my actual pursuit, but as role models, my parents were incredible. They both grew up in Southern Africa at a time of huge racial tension, to the degree that they were so disgusted by the system in South Africa, that they left. They immigrated to England. I’m really proud of them for that.

That’s great they didn’t succumb to any kind of racial brainwashing.

It’s something that fascinates me, being English and Jewish, how a party like the Nazis were able to come to power and stay in power in Germany. Unfortunately we see this throughout history and we see it globally that there are tendencies for authoritative figures to claim power. They are able to slip into otherwise functioning countries, and then there’s that quote, which is something along the lines of “Evil triumphs when good people do nothing.” So it’s imperative when we’re faced with people who claim some sort of medal larger than what they should be given in politics, that we’re mindful of it.

You were also recently cast in “Hand of God.”

It’s another project I’m passionate and excited about. The thing that drew me to it was Marc Forster, who’s always been one of my favorite directors. MONSTER’S BALL was a film that was very significant in my life. So at that point when I was deciding if I should pursue acting professionally, and I was overwhelmed by the film and the performances in it and recognized that I had this deep love for acting. So the opportunity to work with him was really exceptional. And he was every bit exceptional, as you would hope. Then of course Ron Perelman, Dana Delaney, and Garret Dillahunt, they’re a really fantastic cast that I’m proud and honored to be working among.
