Titanic’s ensemble cast adds Canadians


Titanic, the UK-Canada-Hungary co-produced mini-series, has added Canadian actors Noah Reid, Linda Kash and David Eisner to its cast for an upcoming shoot that starts May 9 in Budapest.

Those Canadian elements come on top of an international cast for the Global Television and ABC four-parter that will star Linus Roache and Geraldine Somerville.

Titanic, which is employing mainly British creative talent, was written by Julian Fellowes (Downtown Abbey), while Jon Jones will direct.

The mini-series comes from Deep Indigo Productions and Lookout Point in the UK, Sienna Films in Canada and Hungary-based Mid Atlantic Films.
