Pedro Casablanc is powdering his resume…
The 53-year-old Spanish actor has been cast in BBC One’s drama Gunpowder.
The three-part Guy Fawkes-inspired thriller tells the real story of the Gunpowder Plot, the 1605 attempt by a group of provincial English Catholics to blow up the House of Lords and kill King James I in order to help restore a Catholic to the throne.
In addition to Casablanc, the cast includes Peter Mullan, Mark Gatiss and Liv Tyler.
Shooting is currently underway.
Casablanc, a Goya Award-nominated actor, has appeared in several Spanish-language films and television programs throughout his career.
