What's 'Curfew' about?
In a society controlled by a strictly-enforced curfew, ordinary people compete for freedom in the world’s fastest most furious night-time street race from London to Scotland called The Gauntlet Run.
The entire season is set over one long, crazy, life-changing night as different teams compete to win the ultimate prize - liberation from the curfew that controls their lives.Who is the cast of 'Curfew'?
Sean Bean Role: Errol Chambers / The General
It's Sean Bean! Who doesn't want to see Sean Bean on screen. Although he usually doesn't fare too well, bless him. Bean has died over 25 times on TV shows and movies over the years. Hopefully, he has a better fate on 'Curfew'.
He plays Errol Chambers, AKA The General, who made his name pulling off the kind of insane, high-stakes heists no one else had the balls to attempt. A renowned criminal, he’s built a life with his girlfriend Faith (Rose Williams) becoming the go-to man for the masses, supplying an increasingly desperate population with what they need to survive in the world of the curfew. However, now Faith is pregnant, and she doesn’t want their baby to grow up in a world where you can’t look up at the stars at night without being afraid. So they’re in the race, not just for their freedom, but for the freedom of their unborn child. High stakes indeed. Just don't die on us, Bean.
Billy Zane Role: Joker Jones
He will forever be the obnoxious Cal Hockley from 'Titanic' to many but Billy Zane has had an illustrious career which includes roles in everything from 'Back to the Future' to 'Twin Peaks' to 'Dead Calm'. It's been a while since we have seen Zane really get a chance to sink his teeth into a role so hopefully 'Curfew' will allow him to do just that.
He plays Joker Jones, who along with his crew, are internet sensations who carry out insane, death-defying acts on camera and don’t care what the trigger-happy authorities have to say about it. He chases chaos wherever he can find it, and when he finds it, he ramps it up even further. The race is a perfect opportunity for him to laugh in the face of death. Definitely sounds more craic than Cal anyways.
Miranda Richardson Role: Lou Collins
Miranda Richardson is a long-standing British actress with an impressive career on both the stage and screen. Oscar-nominated Miranda has appeared in a wide range of roles from 'Blackadder' to movies like 'The Crying Game', 'Empire of the Sun', 'Sleepy Hollow', 'The Hours' and 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire' and to be honest, way to many more to list - you have definitely seen her in something before.
In 'Curfew', Miranda plays Lou Collins - Lou is racing for one reason only: love. She and her partner Sue became powerhouses of industry in Manchester, and when they took in eight-year-old Hanmei their family and lives were complete. But Max Larssen needed a world-class engineer on his paradise island and he chose Sue. Now Lou’s made it her mission to race her way to the island and reunite her family.
Adam Brody Role: Max Larssen
Yep, Seth from 'The O.C' is back on the box once more. Adam Brody went on to some decent enough roles post teen-drama including 'Mr and Mrs Smith', 'Lovelace' and well, look he has popped up in lots of places. This show sees him doing what he does best, returning to his role as a geek, only this time he is a super rich one. (Although... he was pretty rich in 'The O.C'... but like, Lex Luther rich now.)
Brody plays the aforementioned Max Larssen, the mastermind behind the idea for the race. Larssen made his first million at 12 and by 18, he was a billionaire. Algorithms were his thing: he wrote code, built systems, predicted the future and invested accordingly. He was the one man that saw the virus and the curfew coming. So he bought an island in the South Pacific and filled it with the resources to survive for 60 years. Then he started to populate it, but he didn’t just need composers and artists and engineers. To rebuild the world, he also needed people with fire in their bellies, who would do anything to survive. That’s why he created the race. Seth would be so proud.
Other cast members:
Adrian Lestor (as Simon Donahue), Malachi Kirby (as Michael Garwick) Aimee-Ffion Edwards (as Ruby Newman), Elijah Rowen (as Zane), and Jason Thorpe (as El Capitano) and as mentioned above, Rose Williams (as Faith Palladino).
