Georgina Rylance will not be relocating to Gracepoint after all.
The English actress, who was set to play flirty hotel owner Gemma in Fox’s Broadchurch adaptation, is leaving the 10-episode mystery-drama for creative reasons, TVLine has learned. The role will be recast.
Gracepoint, which began filming last month on Vancouver Island in Victoria, boasts an impressive cast that includes Doctor Who‘s David Tennant (who also headlines Broadchurch), Breaking Bad‘s Anna Gunn, Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Michael Peña and Nick Nolte.
It’s scheduled for broadcast during the 2014-2015 season.
