****UPDATE: July 31. He is playing the Viceroy! At least that is what his IMDB is saying. Looks like our guess was good. 😉
We don’t have a huge amount to go on, but here are a couple of references to Patrick Malahide’s involvement in a new epic series currently being filmed called Indian Summers. It also stars Julie Walters (Mrs. Weasley!) and is being co-produced by the very lovely and talented Indira Varma, so it is shaping up to be pretty spectacular.
For more information on Indian Summers, click here. If doesn’t reference Patrick Malahide specifically though it does make mention of a “Viceroy” character. That sounds a suitably important role, so maybe that will be his part. I certainly hope he has lots of scenes with Julie Walters because she is fantastic. Of course, they have already worked together in A Short Stay in Switzerland, so you know they’ll have great chemistry.
