A new two part drama from ITV which stars Herminone Norris as a mother who suspects that her son might have murdered a teenage girl.
Nicola has a guest role in this programme, as DC Sue Upton. This may or may not be the same role which Nicola auditioned for previously. A few months ago, a Google Alert put us on notice that some audition clips were available on video sharing site Vimeo relating to A Monther’s Son. Nicola’s audition for the role of a policewoman was amongst the clips which we saw. However, a few days later, the entity responsible for uploading these clips realised they must have made a mistake and made the clips “private”, i.e. the clips are not available for viewing by the general public. In the clip which we saw, Nicola was asked to read a scene where she asked questions of the mother of the suspect. Several other actresses also read the same scene and their clips were also available. As of this writing, we have no idea whether the role Nicola ended up with is the same one for which she auditioned, and how big a role this part is.
We won’t have long to wait to find out. The first episode will air on Monday, 3 September 2012 at 21:00 GMT, with the second episode to follow on Tuesday at the same time slot. Interestingly, Nicola will also be appearing in her guest episode of New Tricks on Monday, 3 September 2012 at 21:00 GMT, but that show is on BBC One. If Nicola also appears in episode one of A Mother’s Son on Monday, 3 September 2012, then it will be a historic first where you can watch her on two channels in two programme at the same time!!!
Screencaps of Nicola in the two episodes of this programme can be viewed HERE.
Herminone Norris was in Series 5 of Spooks [TV] with Nicola.
