Patrick Malahide in Channel 4′s New Worlds

Patrick Malahide to be John Francis in Channel 4’s New Worlds

“Patrick Malahide to appear in New Worlds?  I better learn how to program that recorder now, sir.”

Back in August, we posted that Patrick Malahide was probably going to be in Channel 4’s upcoming New Worlds drama.  Well, Power, a co-producer of the production, was kind enough to answer our query and let us know that Mr. Malahide will indeed be appearing as a character named John Francis.

That is all we know at present, but it is great to know we have something new to look forward to in 2014.

We wonder what sort of guy will John Francis be?  Good? Bad? Somewhere in between?

From Power’s website:

The story is set in the turbulent 1680’s and follows the bitter struggles of two young men and two young women caught up in the events of the time in England and America.  New Worlds is a gripping story of love, loss and the human price paid for the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today on both sides of the Atlantic.

Sounds promisng! Maybe he’ll be dashing and heroic, like Sir Myles (wrong century, but lets go with it anyway).  Or perhaps scruffy and a bit crazy like Uncle Ebenezer or Balon?  Maybe he’ll be all gentrified like Gov. Ainslee (right century too).

Or maybe he’ll be like none of the above whatsoever! Oh – What if he’s a weird Sir Myles/Ebenzer combo?  That would rock! 😉  Hopefully, we’ll soon be finding out a lot more.

Watching Byrne and Strang escape over the rooftops when...

Dashing freedom fighter.

Slightly less dashing freedom fighter.

Charles the II’s henchman.

What’s he doing here?
