House of Anubis - Watch the trailer!

Watch the trailer for the Nickelodeon/Lime Pictures remake of the successful Dutch teen mystery series "House of Anubis".

House of Anubis is a large and imposing English manor house that dates back to 1900 and serves as the home to eight students going through their daily lives at school and dealing with challenges of love, friendship and growing up. A new resident, Nina, arrives from America and soon discovers that the house contains a hidden secret. As the group tries to unravel the house's deep mysteries, it soon becomes clear that their lives will never be the same again...






Filmed over the summer in Liverpool, the new cast includes 18 year old Eugene Simon (represented by United Agents) as Jerome, the sly one. Eugene will also appear in Nickelodeon's other autumn teen drama launch Summer in Transylvania, and also has the role of Lancel in HBO's Game of Thrones.
Jerome is a rather manipulative young man and is not particularly popular. He hangs around with Alfie but mainly because he uses Alfie as his fall guy. He does have a more likeable side, which Mara brings out at some point in the series. However, when Mara “rejects” him, a wounded Jerome betrays all of his housemates...

Disney Channel's Brad Kavanagh stars as boy-next-door Fabian. Talented singer Brad (represented by Red Door Management ) starred in As the Bell Rings and Life Bites as well as being a presenter for Disney.
Fabian is a quiet, likeable, intelligent young man. He sticks up for the under-dog and has a strong sense of fair play. Fabian will not stand for it when Patricia tries to make life hard for Nina. He grows in strength as the series continues and becomes something of a leader. He also falls for Nina but doesn’t have the courage to tell her.


Starring as Alfie, the joker in the pack, is Alex Sawyer (represented by Waring and Mckenna). Alfie loves to have a laugh – mostly at the expense of someone else. He likes horror movies and Goth rock and is energetic, funny and just a little bit crazy. Although his fellow housemates find him fun he can also be rather irritating sometimes. He has a massive and far-from-secret thing for Amber, who barely tolerates his prank-strewn attentions.




And 17 year old Bobby Lockwood (represented by Sandra Singer Associates) from Essex plays Mick, the school jock. Mick is blessed with a gift for most sports and is also conspicuously good-looking. He is very popular with the girls and at the start of the series he is dating Amber. Mick is not particularly academic so is something of a disappointment to his high achieving parents. Mick would love to make his father proud of him and wishes he could receive the kind of grades that Mara gets.


18 year old American actress Nathalia Ramos, who played Yasmin in the Bratz movies, stars as Nina.

Ana Mulvoy Ten (represented by Emma Engers Associates) who also appeared in Disney's Life Bites, stars as Amber.
A likeable airhead. Amber has wealthy parents and is somewhat spoilt. However, she has a generous nature and is generally popular with the rest of the housemates. She tends to rush into things without thinking things through so she does get into some funny and unpredictable scrapes. She is a bit of a drama queen and prone to over-exaggeration. Amber has gorged herself on American culture all of her life.


Anastasia Dhanraj (represented by Kelly Management) from Brighton, stars as Mara.
Mara is very clever and gets top grades in all her subjects without even trying. Like Nina, she is a scholarship student and so she often feels insecure about not having as much money etc as some of the other students. She is quiet and rather conservative in the way she dresses but still waters run deep. Mara has a very passionate soul and is very much in love with Mick, who happens to be with Amber….

Klariza Clayton (who played Freddie's sister in Skins and also stars in Dani's House) plays Joy, the student who mysteriously disappears....



Jade Ramsey stars as Patricia, who has no patience for nonsense and zero respect for sinister teachers. Patricia is tough and sharp-tongued, devastatingly good at put-downs. She is great fun to be around if she likes you, not so much fun if she takes a dislike. And she dislikes Nina intensely to begin with. This turns Patricia into something of a bully early on in the series and she loses friends because of it.





The series consists of 60 episodes, which last 10 minutes each, and House of Anubis has already launched on Nickelodeon in the US.... but we've got to wait till the end of February in the UK!!
