Sean Bean's World On Fire film crew came to Manchester to shoot rainy scenes - and it was sunny
Quote
Castlefield was turned into the backdrop for a World War Two drama on Sunday.

Set around Duke Street and Castle Street, filming got underway for BBC series World On Fire, starring Sean Bean and Helen Hunt.

While the two leading actors were nowhere to be seen, others were snapped in character donning authentic attire, while classic motor vehicles and buses could be seen dotted along the cobbled streets.

As can be seen in these striking images, Manchester weather delivered (for once!) to offer the perfect lighting to capture candid moments during filming, including a man in a trilby style hat reading a newspaper.

But sadly for the film crew, this wasn't what they had in mind - they'd hoped to film some drizzly scenes for the hotly anticipated series.
It was an amusing irony to see a member of the production crew using a water hose to create rainfall - on one of the few days in the year when it doesn't chuck it down somewhere in Greater Manchester (probably).

War epic leads ITVSGE spring drama slate
Quote
The distribution arm of ITV Studios (ITVS) today unveils its spring drama slate, spearheaded by Peter Bowker’s epic story World on Fire, adaptation Noughts + Crosses and Rob Lowe-led police procedural Wild Bill.

ITV Studios Global Entertainment will welcome hundreds of buyers from around the world to its second annual Drama Festival today, with MD Ruth Berry noting that each new drama has been backed by the distributor from its inception.

“Our drama festival is the perfect setting for buyers to be immersed in these incredible stories and to see and hear first-hand from their talented creators what it has taken to craft them into the masterpieces they see on screen today,” she said.

The slate is led by World on Fire, a seven-part drama produced by ITVS-owned Mammoth Screen for BBC1 that tells the story of the Second World War through the lives of ordinary people from all sides of the global conflict. The show is written by Bowker (The A Word) while Helen Hunt, Sean Bean and Lesley Manville lead the ensemble cast.

Writer Peter Bowker said: “World On Fire tells the hidden human stories within the big historical events we think we know …  the stories of the ordinary people who shaped our world.
“Stories of loyalty and brutality, courage and fear, hopes, stories of love and loss, hopes and dreams forged in extraordinary times.”

...and that’s a wrap on series one of ‘World On Fire’ The most incredible and life-changing experience of my career so far. 4 months with thee best team, most of them now friends for life. I still don’t know how I landed the honour of bringing Lois Bennett to life but every second of living in 1939/40 has been beautiful. I cannot wait for everyone to meet Peter’s diverse characters and watch how their ordinary lives turn into extraordinary stories in the face of WW2... and I cannot wait to hopefully rejoin them in 1941 and do it all again soon 🎥💖 Stay tuned for lots of photos and behind the scenes (when we are allowed to post them!) September can’t come quick enough 📺 @bbcone @mammothscreen @worldonfiretv #WorldOnFire #BBC #MammothScreen

What’s been your most challenging role so far?

The one I’ve just done actually, World on Fire, which is a World War II drama and the first series is spanning the first year of the war. I was playing one of the leads, Lois Bennett, who is a Manchester factory worker and singer. I was lucky to grow up with stories from my grandparents of World War II. I also had a great history education at school, I just didn’t know the minor details of what these people had to face day by day and the research I did before the shoot taught me so much. Taking on that role was so challenging because I knew I had to do my research properly, I couldn’t take it light-heartedly. I was also singing, I had copious jazz songs to learn and record in the studio. It was a dream role for me but I realised that I had to do it properly. The show’s release (September 19) is to mark the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II so there’s going to be a lot of exposure and we’re lucky as a small percentage of the viewers might be people who were alive at that difficult time. It was so important to get it right, it’s a big responsibility, but a great one.
 
I’m really excited for the release of World on Fire, I hope that’ll be a springboard for me. I’ve been really lucky in the last two years, I feel like the ball’s started to roll for me. Hopefully there will be another series of World on Fire, it would be a great pleasure to go back and tell more of our characters’ stories. I hope for more acting opportunities and to meet new people, I’ve been so thankful for who I’ve met this year and I hope that those friendships in the industry continue. Hopefully I can take a nice holiday too!

Julia Brown, the actress who is being interviewed in the article Patch quoted, says she is playing a jazz singer in World on Fire.

In one of the photos I've seen from World on Fire, Sean is dressed as a bus conductor, so that's probably the part he's playing.

Your RIGHT Janice, and I'm VERY DISAPPOINTED, because that sounded like a GREAT PART FOR SEAN !!! However, I'm hoping his part will be just
as INTERESTING.
