Charlotte Rampling has joined the second series of 'Broadchurch' in a undisclosed but "pivotal" role
Charlotte Rampling has joined the cast of 'Broadchurch'.
The acclaimed British actress will take on a lead role in the second series of ITV's hit murder mystery drama, and while details about her character are being kept under wraps, she is expected to play a "pivotal" role in the show.
Creator and writer Chris Chibnall said: "Charlotte Rampling! We've been keeping this secret for months, it's been agony. We have another big story to tell this year, and that meant finding exceptional actors for new roles. There's none more exceptional than Charlotte: to be writing for her is a dream come true. As you can imagine, Charlotte's character is an integral part of our new story - but that's where we're drawing a veil, for now..."
ITV's director of drama Steve November added: "We're delighted Charlotte is joining the 'Broadchurch' family. She's the first of some exciting additions to the ensemble for the new series."
Charlotte recently played by Dr. Evelyn Vogel in the final season of hit US serial killer thriller 'Dexter'.
Earlier this week it was confirmed that several actors will return for the second series of 'Broadchurch', including David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill, Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan.
The new series will begin filming in Dorset shortly.
