She’s just finished up the second series of intense BBC dramaDoctor Foster, but Suranne Jones has revealed that throwing herself in to a brand new Sky thriller has helped her through some of her toughest times yet.
She and former Line of Duty actor Lennie James are soon to star in new Sky Atlantic show Save Me.
The six-part thriller is all about Nelly Rowe (played by James), whose life is turned upside down when he is accused of kidnapping his daughter, from whom he is estranged.
Suranne will play the mother of their daughter, Claire, who eventually reunites with Nelly to discover the truth.
Of the new thriller, Lennie James shared, “My story is a thriller set on a housing estate in South East London and that’s what’s unlikely.
“Nelly is an unlikely hero and also their relationship… when you first see them together in the pub, you’re thinking, ‘There’s no way those two were ever together – it would never, ever happen – that’s just Lennie James’s fantasy!’
“But then gradually, as you get to know their personalities, you see what it was that he did for her and what she did for him.”
