Tanya Fear

Brit actress Tanya Fear is a member of the ensemble cast of French pay-TV group Canal Plus' London-set crime drama series "Spotless," with StudioCanal's Tandem Communications producing in association with Rosetta Media.

Co-created by British writer/producer Ed McCardie ("Shameless") and American Corinne Marrinan ("C.S.I."), "Spotless" is described as a “dark, sexy one-hour crime drama peppered with black humor.” It tells the story of a troubled man whose tidy life is turned upside down when his outlaw brother crash lands into his world, and gets both of them fatally involved in organised crime. 

The brothers are different – Jean is a conservative and successful French immigrant to London; Martin is a visceral and libidinous wanderer; their lives marked forever by a violent killing that took place almost 30 years ago.

The series plays out against a backdrop of Jean’s niche Crime Scene Cleaning business, with gangsters, corruption, drugs and death a constant hazard.

Ms Fear joins Marc-André Grondin ("Crazy"), Denis Ménochet ("Inglourious Basterds"), Miranda Raison ("24: Live Another Day"), and Brendan Coyle ("Downton Abbey").

Stateside audiences will remember her as Harlow in "Kick-Ass 2." Additionally, readers of this blog would have watched her star in Brit filmmaker Shola Amoo's futuristic short film "Touch," which we featured in April. 

"Spotless" is set to begin shooting this summer in London, with French director Pascal Chaumeil attached to direct the first two episodes of the series.
