Alfie Boe to guest star in Mr Selfridge

Wednesday July 17, 2013

Singer Alfie Boe will make a special appearance in the new series of Mr Selfridge.

"I'm a huge fan of Mr Selfridge and am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the series," he said.

"I'm looking forward to seeing the set and meeting the cast."

The professional tenor will join Jeremy Piven, Katherine Kelly, Frances O'Connor and Amanda Abbington for one episode, midway through the series.

Alfie will put his musical experience to work as Richard Chapman, a tenor who used to be top of the bill at Gaeity. Richard is an old friend to Lady Mae Loxley and provides comfort and wisdom to her when she needs it most.

"As soon as we introduced the character of Richard Chapman we knew Alfie Boe would be the perfect person to play him," Kate Lewis, executive producer for ITV Studios said.

“We were delighted when he accepted the role and we’re looking forward to welcoming him on set.”
