V SIGN

Anyone following me on Twitter may have read some bizarre tweets towards the end of March – ‘Another day chasing aliens in Carrickfergus’, for instance. No, I hadn’t gone mad, but in fact was filming a BBC sci-fi sitcom pilot called V SIGN.

V SIGN  follows a group of human survivors fighting off the universe’s most incompetent alien invasion force. I’m playing the role of Neil, one of the hapless group fending off the aliens.

The pilot was filmed in Northern Ireland by production companies Retort and Green Inc. It was written by Steve Turner (Tracy Beaker) and directed by Ed Tracy (Fonejacker, Facejacker).

It was awesome week of filming with a great cast and crew. Fingers crossed we get to do more soon!
