Natasia Demetriou joins Alice Lowe's Timestalker

Rom com with an epic theme

Natasia Demetriou has joined the cast of the next film from Prevenge director Alice Lowe.

Timestalker is an epic story a woman’s unrequited love spanning centuries, from 1680s Western Scotland through 1790s rural England, 1980s Manhattan and the apocalyptic future. 

Lowe – whose acting credits include Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place and the comedy-thriller Sightseers – will also be starring.

In each time period. her character falls for the wrong guy, dies a grim death then gets reincarnated a century to start the cycle anew.

Lowe said: ‘It’s so exciting to be working on a grander scale on Timestalker –  but with the same crafting of script and comedy improv and brilliant actors. 

‘This film is my homage to the most romantic epics. Lavish, lush and overflowing with emotion! 

‘This film is going to be shameless. All blusher and petticoats and suicidal lovers. The romantic era we all need a pinch of right now! Romance isn’t dead

Also joining the cast are Sam Riley, recently seen as Pierre Curie in the biopic Radioactive, and  Jacob Anderson, who played Grey Worm in Game Of Thrones.

Gabrielle Stewart, of distributors HanWay Films added: ‘Alice Lowe is part of a wave of exciting fresh female talent coming out of the UK at the moment. 

‘At a time when we need laughter and romance, with Timestalker she delivers all of that but then twists it and subverts it to give us something truly fresh, irreverent and playful. 

‘The rule book is out the window here, and anything is possible.’ 

Timestalker will be touted to possible buyers at next month’s European Film Market.
