Herald on Sunday - - SPY NEWS -

Straight out of Fern­dale, Spy can re­veal the new-look cast for 2018.

Each year the team cre­ates a lit­tle snap­shot of his­tory from the show. Last year, the cast were cap­tured in a glam­orous shoot in tuxe­dos and sparkles for the show’s 25th an­niver­sary.

Now, the pro­duc­tion team has de­cided

to take the fo­cus back to the se­rial's cen­tral med­i­cal-based drama, scrubs and all. We hear there will be a lot more hospi­tal crises in the sto­ry­lines too.

“It’s al­ways a big one to put to­gether,” says the show’s se­nior pub­li­cist, Rae­gen Houldridge, who is charged with cre­at­ing the an­nual snap­shot, de­cid­ing who is in it, and what the look should be.

“The jug­gle re­ally hap­pens try­ing to sched­ule the shoot in be­tween film­ing and the avail­abil­ity of the 18 cast mem­bers, but it’s al­ways a fun project to work on,” she says.

You may no­tice one key per­son miss­ing from the shot. Where is re­cep­tion­ist Leanne Black? Spy can con­firm that fans shouldn’t worry — she’s not go­ing any­where just yet, was away for an ex­tended pe­riod star­ring in a play and hav­ing a break, so was un­avail­able for the pho­to­shoot.
