South Riding

Two young actresses who appeared as young sisters in UK crime thriller "Clubbed" are now reunited again filming the new BBC three-part adaptation of South Riding, by Winifred Holtby, for BBC One.

In the long aftermath of the First World War, Sarah Burton (Anna Maxwell Martin), comes home from London to Yorkshire to take up the position of headmistress at a struggling Yorkshire high school for girls. 

Amongst the pupils are Lydia Holly, played by Charlie Clark (pictured right), a 14-year-old girl with a difficult home life whose education is in jeopardy when her mother dies and she slips through society's safety net. 16 year old Charlie is from Leeds and is now represented by Curtis Brown.

Katherine McGolpin from Wetherby plays Midge Carne, the delicate and troubled daughter of gentleman farmer Robert Carne (David Morrissey) and his ill-starred first wife. 12 year old Katherine has also appeared in Emmerdale and The Royal.

South Riding is currently filming in Leeds for transmission later this year.
