Death in Paradise announces very familiar faces joining season 12 – and fans are thrilled | The Sun

DEATH in Paradise has announced some very familiar faces to join the sun-drenched drama – and fans are in for a treat.

The upcoming run of the BBC favourite confirmed three more actors on Thursday, including Games of Thrones, Sanditon and Nighty Night star Kevin Eldon.

Also announced were Amit Shah, who has appeared in The Long Call, The Witcher and Last Christmas, and Chelsea Edge, who is specifically announced as playing a guest role.

The trio join a list of already announced actors for series 12, including Doctor Who and Holby City star Jo Martin, Derry Girls' Sister Michael herself, Siobhan McSweeney and Les Dennis.

Meanwhile, fellow Derry Girls alumni Dylan Williams has joined the cast of Death in Paradise spin-off Beyond Paradise, alongside former EastEnders star Zahra Ahmadi, and another Nighty Night star, Felicity Montagu.

Unlike the latest castings for the main show, we know who this trio will be playing.

Kris Marshall is making the move from the main series to the spin-off, and he recently spoke about the differences between the two shows.

"It's carrying on from where we left Humphrey Goodman and Martha, with their new bucolic south-western lifestyle," Marshall said.

"The classic Death in Paradise way of wrapping up the show is spun on its head a bit – not every episode is a murder – so more sheep rustling and stuff like that!
