Hollyoaks star Callum Kerr lands Hollywood role in US series Glow and Darkness with Denise Richards


HOLLYOAKS’ Callum Kerr will star in big budget Hollywood drama Glow and Darkness.

The actor, who plays PC George Kiss in the Channel 4 soap, filmed his scenes for the medieval show earlier this year.

Callum shared a snap on set with his co-stars at Atlas Studios, Ouarzazate, Morocco.

According to IMDB, he plays Frederick VI (Of Swabia), and in his behind the scenes photo, he can be seen grinning in a yellow tunic.

He wrote at the time: “Another brilliant week of filming in the desert with these gents.”

Writer and poet Alejandro Gillermo Roemmers created the series, which is also being filmed in Madrid, Spain.

The nine-part series centres around the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, the 13th century Catholic Friar.

Last month HOAR revealed how another Hollyoaks star, Stuart Manning, had landed himself a major role in the series, alongside US actress Denise Richards and former Bond girl Jane Seymour.

Stuart, 41, has shared behind the scenes snaps on Instagram and he looks rather different.

Sporting a bushy beard, the former soap star looks worlds away from his Hollyoaks character Russ Owen.

Stuart shared a selfie with some of his co-stars in between takes and captioned the photo: “Working with these guys on #glowanddarkness has been a dream. I can’t wait to share it with you all soon.”

He also shared several videos as he basked in the Spanish sun and took it all in.

“I am blessed to be working as an actor on such a great programme. It’s been brilliant, so if you’re working, you’re blessed,” said in one of the clips.

The role comes after he revealed he was working as a vehicle delivery driver after being killed off from Hollyoaks in 2018.

The jobbing actor took to Instagram in 2019 to post a short clip, giving fans an update as he arrived at a Mercedes Benz garage in Hertfordshire for his first job of the day.

“Another day working! #grafting#workforyourdreams #iwillgetthere,” he posted.

Stuart is best known for playing Russ Owen in Hollyoaks

“Morning, morning morning. How is everyone this morning? I know it’s nice and early. I’ve been here since half 5. I’m at Mercedes, just waiting to pick up a car. So yeah, just cracking on with a bit of work, making a bit of money,” he added.

“Fingers crossed some castings will come in soon, we just have to wait and see. Life is how it goes, you just got to make the best of it.

“I hope everyone’s good. I hope everyone has a wicked day and I will catch you all later. Laters!”

Denise Richards also stars in Glow and Darkness

Filming of Glow and Darkness was postponed earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it’s unsure when the series will be ready for release.

Denise has also been teasing a number of elaborate looks from the international series on social media, which include her wearing medieval gowns and crowns.
