All-singing Kiruna Stamell in a BBC One drama
Aussie actress Kiruna Stamell is set to appear in a major new BBC One drama called All The Small Things. In the six part series, she stars in an ensemble cast alongside Sarah Lancashire and Neil Pearson as one of the members of a community choir in which the arrival of a new member causes a rift in the group.
... and before you ask, the title has nothing to do with her short stature, it's a reference to a Blink 182 song, sung by the choir.
The producers have promised "rousing choruses, joyous harmonies and booming basslines". Kiruna assures me there are a good few laughs as well.
This is the second time she's been on the BBC in a week, following her recent turn as a special needs teacher in EastEnders.
You can catch her debut on the show tonight at 9.00pm on BBC One, or afterwards on iPlayer. Plus, if you can't get enough of Kiruna, she is also presenting April's Ouch! Talk Show - download it from this Thursday.
