Theo Stevenson who played Toby was one of the ones being interviewed.

ARP: I’m sorry Theo, but I can’t do this interview and not ask about a third series of Humans, is there anything you can reveal?
STEVENSON: We are shooting the third series this summer and I can’t wait! I’m very excited to read the scripts soon.

No more info on whether Colin's character, Leo, will return or not.

According to various outlets, John Hurt has died at the age of 77.




Sir John Hurt - one of the defining actors of his generation - has reportedly died. He was 77.

The Doctor Who and Alien star passed away on Friday (January 27) after battling pancreatic cancer in the last few years of his life, according to The Mirror. He'd celebrated his birthday on January 22.

A near-ubiquitous presence on TV, film and the stage across six decades, Sir John earned four BAFTAs, a Golden Globe and was nominated twice for an Academy Award.

Sir John's many memorable movie roles over the years include voicing Aragorn in the original animated Lord of the Rings movie, the reluctant rebel Winston in 1984, an oppressive dictator in V for Vendetta and the wand-maker Mr Ollivander in the Harry Potter movie series.

He reached an entirely new generation of fans as the lost War Doctor in Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special 'The Day of the Doctor', a role which he reprised for a series of Big Finish audio dramas.

Bradley James is in New York City this weekend. I don't know why but he posted a picture on twitter.

Tweet: Sorry guys. On a mission. Absolutely cannot divulge where I've landed. Super top secret. https://twitter.com/BradleyJames/status/817711236808867840

In other news,
In Too Fab magazine, Theo James (the lead) said this about the next Underworld movie:

Theo James: I think David's storyline is done. I think his arc has been fully realized. I think now is the time for the new characters that have been introduced to the story to take the helm, mainly Bradley James, who will be the next lead.

However, Sony denies it.

Bradley James appears as the villainous Varga in the new film, but Sony told us Theo's suggestion of him taking over the franchise is "not true."

So take that with a grain of salt.

Scifinow.co.uk was able to snag an interview with our own Sir Gwaine while he was promoting Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. What he had to say was interesting at the very least. https://www.scifinow.co.uk/news/merlins-eoin-macken-gwaine-isnt-dead/

“I don’t think Gwaine actually died, that’s my opinion on it.” Is Eoin Macken’s answer when we ask him what it felt like to ruin Christmas for millions of Merlin fans worldwide in 2012. (For those not in the know, a whole string of the big characters died within a couple of minutes of each other mere hours before Santa was due to come down the chimney.) Four years on, and, honestly, we’re still not over it.

Oh, Eoin. He's something else, he is. I wish he was serious but I think he's just having us on. Anyway, it made me grin to think of all the possibilities.
Tomiwa Edun is in the Doctor Who Christmas special this year, The Return of Doctor Mysterio. He plays Mr. Brock.
