Fionn Whitehead stars in new ITV supernatural series HIM

Newcomer Fionn Whitehead, Katherine Kelly, James Murray, Patrick Robinson and Simona Brown are set to star in ITV’s three-part “domestic horror” drama HIM. Written by the multi award-winning screenwriter Paula Milne (The Politician’s Wife, The Virgin Queen) it begins filming in suburban London later this month.

The story focuses on a 17-year-old boy, (known only in the drama as “HIM”) who is caught in the limbo between childhood and adulthood. But he’s also trapped in a limbo between the two homes of his divorced parents, each now remarried with new families. On top of all that, he’s engaged in a struggle to contain the terrifying secret of a supernatural power he inherited from his grandfather.

Acting newcomer Whitehead takes the lead role, joined by Kelly (Mr SelfridgeThe Sound Of Music Live) as mum Hannah, Murray (Suspects, CucumberPrimeval, Defiance) as dad Edward, Robinson (Mount Pleasant, Casualty) as step dad Victor and Brown (The Casual Vacancy, Murdered By My Boyfriend) as stepsister Faith.
