Torchwood beauty Eve Myles has saddened the hearts of many a hot blooded person by upping sticks and moving to the bright lights and celebrity dreamland that is Hollywood in order to film the new ten part series of the Doctor Who spin off The New World.
Many tongues have been wagging recently to try and pin down the dates for when filming of Torchwoodâ€™s latest series would commence and now the facts can finally start emerging, www.walesonline.co.uk have confirmed the start date as January 11th 2011.
Myles commented that she never had Hollywood as a â€œgoalâ€ set in her sites but the draw of Torchwood and working with John Barrowman was just too much for her to resist:
â€œI always said I didnâ€™t think Hollywood was for me but it just happened…Iâ€™m not the sort of person to go out there and do networking. I would rather work for the RSC or the National Theatre. Iâ€™ve not ticked off a quarter of the boxes I want to fill over here yet…But to be out there for this project is just wonderful.
“What a brilliant little start in life for [her daughter] Matilda…Itâ€™s comforting that heâ€™ll [John Barrowman] be there too… I know weâ€™ll be doing something extraordinary out there and I want it to do really well.â€
Will the Hollywood lifestyle change the actress? Myles certainly seems to think not:
â€œIâ€™m not going to change â€“ if anything, I will be even more grounded as I will be fiercely protective of Matilda.â€
And in any case sheâ€™ll be back in Wales at the end of January for two weeks to film new scenes in Gower because this new Torchwood is going to be an all over the world affair so fear not, we havenâ€™t seen the last of her!
Torchwood: The New World will be airing in 2011 and is clearly going to be the best and most audacious series yet!
