Noel Clarke leads the cast of new ITV drama 'Viewpoint', which follows the investigation of a missing school teacher
Noel Clarke will lead the cast of new ITV drama 'Viewpoint'.
The 44-year-old actor will star as a surveillance detective who sets up an investigation into missing primary school teacher Gemma Hillman (Amy Wren) by taking up surveillance in the home of a single mum (Alexandra Roach).
The series will also feature the likes of Catherine Tyldesley, Bronagh Waugh, Sarah Niles, Shannon Murray, Phil Davis, Ian Puleston-Davies, Marcus Garvey and Erin Shanagher.
Lucy Bedford, the head of drama at Tiger Aspect Productions, said the series will be a "compelling, tense, claustrophobic thriller that turns the spotlight on the observer rather than the observed".
She added: "With the incredible Noel Clarke and Alexandra Roach leading the cast, we are extremely excited to be back in production."
The drama will mark the first show to filmed in Manchester since the coronavirus lockdown.
Meanwhile, Noel previously opened up on his incredible weight loss after dropping 13 percent of his body fat in just four months.
The 'Bulletproof' actor made a pact with co-star Ashley Walters after realising he'd become "softer" around his waist, and acknowledging he couldn't make any excuses for his excess weight.
He shared: "In 2012, I had to put on three and half stone for a film about cage fighters. But the project didn't happen and the weight stayed on.
"Then, in April last year, we were shooting season two of 'Bulletproof' when I looked in the mirror and thought, 'This is not cool.'
"I was 13 stone and over the years, everything had got softer. I was with my co-star Ashley who said, 'Let's get in shape.' I thought about making excuses: 'I'm not as muscular as you, I'm five years older' etc. But excuses aren't me."
