The former Corrie actress explained: "Tom Edge has created a thrill of a story, set in a world I knew nothing about. The cast and crew World Productions have put together to tell this story is so exciting.

"Amy Silva is a brilliantly complex character, thrown into a highly charged situation where her authority is weakened."
