Sandra Oh (best known for Grey's Anatomy) is playing Sarah Chen - a renamed Sarah McEvoy in Scaredy Cat. And very wonderful she is too!

She's playing it English, and from the rushes I've seen, it's a remarkable performance.

Out of interest, Mark, what nationality is Sandra Chen in the TV series?
I remember an episode of Grey's Anatomy where Sandra Oh's character was very upset when a colleague assumed she was Chinese.

It's not really made specific. She's just another officer...

Any casting news on a certain pair of killers? Also, is Stephen Campbell Moore playing the older or younger Bishop in Sleepyhead?

Stephen is playing the older Bishop. There is no younger Bishop as the plot has changed rather fundamentally in this respect. Stand by for...a different killer!

And Nicklin and Palmer in Scaredy Cat are being played wonderfully by Tom Brooke and Joe Absalom. Again though, there is a very clever plot twist which is new to the TV version...

An actor whose name I recognise and can put a face to. That makes two, including David Morrisey. Have I led a sheltered life or what?  Embarrassed

Wha--why? How do you feel about that Mark?

To be honest though, when I read Sleepyhead I guessed right away that it was the younger Bishop...but it was still really great and in no way did it take away from my reading pleasure!
