Good old Orange Mark is at it again, this time giving us a peek at the guest characters for episode 2 – Fathers and Suns. No new pictures have been released this time, but obviously the information I’m about to discuss could be considered spoilery by some, so you’ve been warned. Also, our usual spoiler policy for all the smug cunts who were at the recording applies as always.
The synopsis given is the same one we’ve previously seen, but now we have an actor to attach to this mysterious ‘Pree’, namely the excellent Rebecca Blackstone. She makes me want to do something, but I don’t know what it is! Whatever it is… etc etc. Blatant sexism aside, Rebecca gives a really fantastic performance as Pree. I predict she’ll be popular.
Also listed is Kerry Shale, who will be playing Medi-Bot (MEDI-BOT) and someone called Taiwan Tony, two roles that I really can’t comment on much until the episode airs. Let’s just say that these are two performances that are certainly going to be memorable for a number of reasons, especially considering Kerry is white, Canadian and tasked with playing a character called Taiwan Tony.
