Sienna Guillory joins Idris Elba in the third series of Luther



Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil, Inkheart, Love Actually, Eragon) has been cast to play Luther’s new love interest in series three of Neil Cross’s critically acclaimed drama series, which started filming last week.

Luther is back under intense pressure, with two conflicting crimes to investigate and a ruthless ex-copper determined to bring him down.

Luther’s life is his job; that is, until love crosses his path and offers him a chance of happiness. Guillory plays Mary, who works in a vintage clothes shop. She meets Luther in a chance encounter.

Guillory says: "You realise why Luther is so good when you read Neil Cross’s scripts, and then you meet Idris and understand what 'untamed' means. There is no other set I'd rather be on, and I love the disastrous fun of being Mary Day, the right girl in the wrong place."

Idris Elba, playing Luther, adds: “I want to thank the fans for waiting so patiently for the new season. We’re thrilled to deliver it to you. Here comes John!”

Warren Brown (Good Cop) returns as DS Justin ‘Ripley’, Nikki Amuka-Bird as DS Erin Gray, Dermot Crowley as DSU Martin Schenk and Michael Smiley as Benny Deadhead. Further guest stars include Lucian Msamati (Game of Thrones) and Ned Dennehy (Parade’s End, Tyrannosaur).

The third series of Luther is due for transmission on BBC One next year.
