Playing a 'smart cookie' coder

Isy Suttie has joined the cast of the next Wallace & Gromit adventure, alongside Miriam Margolyes and Jim Carter.

The new project from Aardman animation is an augmented reality app that lets players join in the story as the inventor and his faithful dog win a contract to fix up the streets of Bristol.

Margolyes plays Beryl, an artificial intelligence bot, while Downton Abbey’s Carter takes on the role of pompous  puffed pie magnate Bernard Grubb. 

Suttie will play young Lily Hackerby, described as a ‘smart cookie with her own successful programming business,’ whom Grubb invests in.
Newcomer Grace Ahmed plays Clarissa Kent , an ambitious would-be journalist, breaking stories on social media. She will become the first real person to features in a Wallace & Gromit animation. 

The app, due to launch in the autumn, will mix multi-user artificial reality gameplay, new CGI animations, in-character phone calls, comic strips, and ‘extended reality portals’.

Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park said he was ‘delighted to welcome this wonderful voice cast to Wallace & Gromit’s new augmented reality world.’
