Bryn twins land role in BBC hit Atlantis
THESE cheeky chaps have landed a starring role in a brand new TV drama.
Ten-month-old twins Ethan and George James from Amanwy in Bryn, have been chosen to play the special role of the King and Queen's son in the BBC show Atlantis, which aired for the first time on Saturday.
The boys' mum, Jessica Bolton, was told of the opportunity by a friend, and she contacted the Mark Jermin agency to express their interest.
She said: "The agency was looking for five to six month old twins to be part of a new series called Atlantis, filmed by the BBC.
"I contacted the agency and they explained they would need the twins' details and picture and if successful they will call me back.
"A couple of days later the agency contacted me to say my twins Ethan and George had the part in Atlantis."
The show is a fantasy drama set in a world of legendary heroes and mythical creatures.
The family travelled to Chepstow and Gloucester, where the twins took on 12 days of filming with the three lead actors Mark Addy, Jack Donnelly and Robert Emms.
Ms Bolton, who also has an eldest son named Reagan, said: "The twins adapted very easily to their parts. The cast and the directors told us they had natural ability for the cameras in filming and to move forward in their career.
"One of the main directors forwarded them on to a children's agency in London.
"The experience we had working with the BBC team, cast and directors was amazing and enjoyable.
"Ethan and George enjoyed all the fuss from the BBC team. They were very supportive and caring towards the twins.
"Hopefully in the future they will get to work with the BBC again."
The series will next air on BBC One on Saturday at 8.25pm.
