CHANNEL 4 TV’S “BORN TO KILL” FILMS BENEATH PENARTH PIER

Will she or won't she succumb to Sam's suggestions? ...which probably not what the audience might have expected them to be.

Will “Chrissy” (played by Lara Peake)  succumb to the suggestions of 15-year-old “Sam”  (played by Jack Rowan)? And no, they’re not at all what the audience might have expected them to be.

A full size film crew was on Penarth Esplanade today shooting scenes underneath Penarth Pier for a new Channel 4 drama series provisionally called “Born to Kill”. 

The series – written by Tracey Malone & Kate Ashfield –  is a four part  psychological thriller  about a 15-year-old boy called Sam who’s fallen in love with fellow school pupil Chrissy.

Little does Chrissy know it – but, without giving too much away –   “Sam” is concealing a darker side of his personality and needs to know whether his new girl-friend is prepared to share his grisly inclinations  – to kill people.

Sam is played by Jack Rowan and  Lara Peake takes the role of his girl-friend.

Born to Kill is called “BTK ” for short on the fluorescent  indicator arrows (strategically placed around Penarth to help disorientated crew members find their way to the location) .

    Recall when filming was a novelty and we all turned out to look-nowadays it is -more filming-“whatever”. Very impressive was actress Eva Langoria who made a point of meeting local people when filming here and apparently still speaks fondly of South Wales friendliness.

  2. Dan says:

    Filming is worse than ‘whatever’. It’s a damn nuisance.

      Yes all those young people working hard to create something. How very dare they! Don’t they realise they are filming in “God’s waiting room”!

      • Aaron says:

        Always such a bore when people bring age into it as though that’s all that counts (and not all of them are that young in any event).
