Dakota Blue Richards (The Golden Compass, Skins), Sam Hazeldine (Bridget Jones, The Raven), Jill Halfpenny (Eastenders, Waterloo Rd), Kris Marshall (Love Actually, My Family), Danny Miller (Emmerdale), Antonia Clarke (Skins, A Mother’s Son), Lucy Cohu (Gosford Park), Danny Webb (Life Begins), Neil Jackson (Upstairs Downstairs), Karla Crome (Misfits) and Sophie Thompson (Four Weddings and a Funeral) all join the cast.
Lightfields is a brand new story and original script from writer Simon Tyrrell (She’s Gone, The Vice) following on from the hugely successful drama Marchlands which debuted on ITV in 2011 and secured a place in the top ten most watched dramas on television across all channels that year.
