According to WalesOnline, West End Phantom of the Opera star John Owen-Jones has been cast in a new TV drama series about zombies, In the Flesh. The series will air on BBC Three next year.
"My role is only a small one but it's important to the setting up of the story which tells of how, after a freak occurrence re-animates thousands of dead people one night, all these zombies have to be rehabilitated back into society somehow," Owen-Jones told WalesOnline.
