EastEnders star Lacey Turner is back on TV, and she sees dead people!

by Lynn Connolly

Former EastEnders star Lacey Turner is to return to our screens playing the role of a paramedic who sees ghosts.

She’s to star in Sky Living drama, Bedlam, as Ellie, alongside Jack Roth, who’s the son of actor Tim Roth.

The main focus of the show is a block of flats that used to be a mental asylum, and of course, the new series is the show’s second year.

The first series saw Will Young in the lead role, but at the end of the first run, he and several other cast members were caught in a huge explosion.

The Sun states, “The original cast won’t be back — although Will and the others could have cameos in the new run as bosses tie up loose ends”
.
Speaking to the paper, Lacey – who’s also starred in Being Human and Frankenstein’s Wedding since she left ‘Enders – said she couldn’t wait to play the role of Ellie…

She said, “I am really excited about taking part in the second series of Bedlam.

“It’s a great story with brilliant writing and a fantastic cast.

“Ellie is a really interesting and conflicted character. I’m looking forward to playing her and seeing where the story takes her.”

And Jack Roth added, “The first series was very interesting, opening many exciting doors to explore in a darker way.

“Horror is a genre which can be capitalised upon brilliantly for television as there is time to fully develop ideas.

“My character Max has a great back story with intriguing and mysterious directions to be taken along with Ellie.”

Anne Mensah, who’s head of drama at Sky, said of the show, “We have huge ambitions for Bedlam.

“The show is a unique combination of engaging relationship drama and real scares.”

Here’s a trailer for the first series of the show…

To be honest, this is the first I’ve ever heard of Bedlam! And I’m kinda gutted because it looks really good.

I’m going to have to watch series one now 😉
