A FYLDE coast actor is to star in a multi-million dollar Channel 4 production.

Former King Edward VII and Queen Mary School student Jason Langley, 28, features as monk Brother Matthias in the six-part series World Without End on Saturday.

Jason, who now lives in London said: “It’s an adaptation of Ken Follett’s novel and the sequel to the award-winning Pillars of the Earth.

“Ridley Scott is the executive producer and the cast includes Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon and spy drama Spooks actor Peter Firth.

“Set 200 years after Pillars of the Earth, in medieval England, it is the epic story of the people of Kingsbridge and their battles with the church and the crown.

“The series was shot in Hungary, Austria and Slovakia for more than six months, at a cost of $46m, which equates to around £28.5m.”

Jason, whose parents live in St Annes, has had a varied career, including roles in pantomime starring as Dick Whittington, as well as a stage tour for play ENRON, about the bankruptcy of the multi-billion dollar American energy company.

He added he already has plans for the future with his next role.

He said: “Later this year I can also be seen in Da Vinci’s Demons, a big budget series based on Leonardo Da Vinci from the mind of David S Goyer who wrote the recent Batman Trilogy.”
