Newcomer Elizabeth Dormer-Phillips landed the role of 10 year Carrie Morgan. Elizabeth, from Leigh-on-Sea, attends the Pauline Quirke Academy in Southend and this is her first major TV role.
Fortitude is described as a place like nowhere else. Although surrounded by the savage beauty of the Arctic landscape, Fortitude is one of the safest towns on earth. There has never been a violent crime here. Until now. In such a close-knit community a murder touches everyone and the unsettling, mysterious horror of this crime threatens the future of the town itself.
The series has an all-star cast including Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Sofie Grabol, Richard Dormer, Jessica Raine, Luke Treadaway, Nicholas Pinnock and Johnny Harris.
Created and written by Simon Donald, Fortitude is currently filming in Iceland until June, and will air exclusively on Sky Atlantic in late 2014.
