First look at The Woman in Black: Angel of Death

Shooting started last week on The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, the next instalment of the most successful British horror film of all time.

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death stars Phoebe Fox as Eve, in her first leading role in a feature film. RADA-trained Phoebe (represented by Curtis Brown) who was picked as one of Screen International's Stars of Tomorrow 2011 for her theatre performances, recently starred as Grace in ITV2 witch drama Switch. She previously worked with director Tom Harper on War Book alongside Sophie Okonedo, and will also be seen in Aisling Walsh’s Dylan Thomas project A Poet in New York with Tom Hollander and BBC’s The Musketeers.

Phoebe is joined by Jeremy Irvine (represented by Hatton McEwan) playing Harry. Jeremy shot to fame when he was cast as Albert in Steven Spielberg's War Horse. He has since starred alongside Dakota Fanning in Now Is Good and as Pip in the film adaptation of Great Expectations. His recent film work includes A Night in Old Mexico with Robert Duval, and The Railway Man with Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.

Also joining the cast is 8 year old  Oaklee Pendergast (represented by Sylvia Young Agency) who played the youngest brother Simon in tsunami drama The Impossible.

The rest of the young cast includes:

Jude Wright (represented by Troika), who starred in the Sky1 Comedy drama Spy, as Tom.

Leilah de Meza (represented by Curtis Brown), who played young Vivien in the ITV drama Lightfields, as Ruby.

Amelia Pidgeon (represented by Louise Johnston Management), who appeared as young Natascha in the Natascha Kampusch kidnap feature film 3096 Days, as Joyce.  

With newcomers Alfie Simmons (represented by Abacus) as Alfie,

 Pip Pearce (represented by Abacus) as James
and Amelia Crouch (represented by Curtis Brown) as Flora.

The Woman in Black: Angel Of Death continues the original film’s story: four decades have passed since Arthur Kipps, as played by Daniel Radcliffe, travelled to Eel Marsh House – and now, a group of children are evacuated with their teachers from the perils of Blitz-era London. The group soon awakens Eel Marsh House’s darkest inhabitant.

The film is directed by Tom Harper and will shoot at multiple locations throughout England and Pinewood Studios.

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death is set to be released in the UK on Friday 13th February 2015.
