Thirteen Steps Down

Luke Treadaway stars in Thirteen Steps Down, a gripping psychological thriller based on the novel by Ruth Rendell, coming to ITV on Monday 13th August.

The two-part drama centres on a young Notting Hill mechanic Mix Cellini (Treadaway) who is fixated by both a local model Nerissa Nash (Elarica Gallagher) and a long-dead serial killer, John Reginald Christie, the real-life petty criminal who murdered eight women in Notting Hill between 1943 and 1953.

27 year old Luke (represented in the UK by Hamilton Hodell) already has an impressive CV of film and TV roles. He was nominated for a British Independent Film Award as most promising newcomer for his role as Barry Howe in the 2005 film Brothers of the Head. He made his first television appearance the following year as Adam Solomons in eight episodes of The Innocence Project. Other roles have included Theo in the TV movie Clapham Junction, Eddie in ten episodes of Mist: Sheepdog Tales and Brewis in the 2011 science fiction film Attack the Block.

In Thirteen Steps Down he joins a star-studded cast including Geraldine James, Anna Calder-Marshall and Gemma Jones, the ladies who live in the dilapidated Notting Hill house where he rents the top floor.

Starring alongside him as the beautiful model Nerissa who Mix adores, idolises and stalks, is Elarica Gallacher (represented by Piers Nimmo Management). Elarica spent her teenage years travelling the world as a model, so the part seemed tailor-made for her. She has acted as well since she was six year old, she played Sophie in Channel 4's Top Boy, and also stars in the up-coming indie horror The Forgotten.

23 year old Victoria Bewick, a Manchester School of Theatre graduate plays Danila, Mix's girlfiriend who dates to criticise Nerissa, unleashing his pent-up violence.

Thirteen Steps Down begins on ITV1 on Monday August 13 at 9.00pm
