Actor Brian Capron, who is starring this week in the Talking Scarlet production Strictly Murder at Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne, has said he would love to play the compassionate copper in local author Tony Flood’s thriller Triple Tease.
Flood’s book has been endorsed by best selling author Peter James, and talks are being held to turn it into a stage play like some of James’ own thrillers.
Capron, who lives in Hove and starred as killer Richard Hillman in Coronation Street, declares: “If Triple Tease makes it to the stage or screen DCI Livermore would be a great character to bring to life, with me playing him, of course.”
Eastbourne author Flood adds: “If that did happen I would be delighted to see Brian play DCI Harvey Livermore. He would be ideal for the part of a policeman faced with the ethical dilemma of ‘do the ends justify the means?’
“DCI Livermore is challenged by gorgeous heroine Katrina Merton to ignore the rule book and let her help him nail a serial killer by acting as the bait in a honey trap.”
Director Alan Baker says: “Triple Tease would make a first-class TV thriller, and I can see actors like Brian Capron and Stephen Tompkinson queueing up for the lead male role of the under pressure, tough yet vulnerable DCI Livermore.”
Signed copies of Triple Tease can be obtained for the specially reduced price of £6.99, including postage, by sending a cheque, payable to ‘Sportsworld Communications’, to Special Book Offer, 24 Brisbane Quay, Eastbourne, BN23 5PD.
* Brian Clemens thriller Strictly Murder is at Devonshire Park Thursday from April 6th to Saturday April 8th.
