Following the teaser trailer released two months ago, the official trailer for Rose’s upcoming TV show « Vigil » is now out ! It looks intense and absolutely amazing.
Rose plays DS Kirsten Longacre who will lead an investigation on land into a conspiracy that goes to the very heart of Britain’s national security, following the mysterious disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death on-board the submarine HMS Vigil.
It has also been announced that « Vigil » will open the television festival « Series Mania » in Lille (France) where it will get its world premiere ! The festival will be taking place on August 26 – September 2. No release date has been announced yet but we can hopefully expect the show to come to our screens in September.
A first teaser trailer and first look pictures of Rose’s upcoming series « Vigil » have been released ! A premiere date hasn’t been announced yet, but the six-part series will soon air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. Rose plays Kirsten Longacre, a detective on her first murder investigation : “She’s finding her feet but she’s gung-ho and very willing and determined, which is a fun character to play.”
