Scott Fletcher and Bobby Rainsbury join the cast of Scottish soap River City, starring as the teenage children of new resident Alan Lindsay, played by Stephen McCole, a local builder driven by success.
Glasgow-based Scott Fletcher plays his thrill-seeking son Angus. Charming but irresponsible, Angus likes to live life in the fast lane. A
trained mechanic, Angus loves fast cars and his arrival in Shieldinch
will see him form an unlikely, and potentially risky, friendship with
garage owner Bob Adams (Stephen Purdon).
For Scott, joining River City is a family affair as his
brother, Ryan, played bad boy Vader in the early years of the drama:
"I'm delighted to be joining the cast at this exciting time for the
show, and thrilled to joining alongside some brilliant actors. Ryan
loved his time on River City so I know I will too. I'm really looking
forward to filming starting and can't wait to see what the future holds
for the Linsday family."
Bobby Rainsbury (represented by Lee Morgan Management) plays Alan’s troubled teenager daughter, Kirsty. A fresh start in Shieldinch is the last thing 15-year-old Kirsty Lindsay
wants. Smarting from her parents’ recent split, Kirsty arrives feeling
emotionally insecure, withdrawn and headed for self-destruction.
RSAMD graduate Bobby said of her new role:
"I’m really excited to be joining such a great cast. I’m looking forward
to playing a dynamic and complicated character who will no doubt be
facing a lot of challenges over the course of the next few months!"
Stephen McCole will be the first to join the cast of River City when he
starts filming next month at BBC Scotland’s Dumbarton Studios for scenes
which will air at the end of April. Scott and Bobby make their River
City debuts in May this year.
