British drama Heartbeat is currently shooting an episode on the Gold Coast this week with actors Joe McFadden, Clare Wille and Lisa Kay, with Blair McDonough in a guest role.
The production is in Australia for two weeks.
“We were over in a really interesting place last week near Casino which hadn’t changed much since the 1960s,” McFadden told news.com.au. “Filming is going so well there is talk at the moment of perhaps doing a spin-off.
“I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I might be involved.”
McFadden, Wille and Kay play PC Joe Mason, DS Rachel Dawson and nurse Carol Cassidy respectively. Blair McDonough will play an Australian shepherd who lured Aidensfield’s Rosie Cartwright from the Yorkshire moors to warmer pastures.
The episodes aren’t expected to appear on Channel 7 until at least next year.
