Who is in the cast of BBC drama The Nest? – The Sun

THE Nest is the dark new BBC drama that follows the story of one couple's tragic surrogacy journey.

Here's who's in the cast of the new thriller.

Who stars in The Nest?

Martin Compston (Dan)

Line of Duty actor Martin, 35 stars as Dan, husband to Emily.

He is a self-made man who, apparently, owns half of Glasgow and drives around in a Bentley.

A local hero, he even forked out for a massive sports stadium for underprivileged kids.

The couple appear to have it all – besides a family of their own.

When they hire Kaya (Mirren Mack) to be their surrogate, Dan has growing suspicions about the troubled teen.

Compton tells iNews he found it "liberating" not having to curb his Scottish accent after growing up in Greenock in the Scottish Lowlands.

Adding, "To be on set and not be worried about someone saying, 'Could you just clip the 'T' on that? or 'can you change that' …That's very freeing as an actor because you can just get on with it."

Sophie Rundle (Emily)

British actress, Sophie is best known for her roles on Peaky Blinders, Gentleman Jack and Bodyguard.

She plays Dan's beautiful wife Emily.

Emily has struggled to conceive, suffered numerous miscarriages and will literally do anything to have a family of her own.

During an interview with whatsontv Sophie explains, "It's such a brilliant script…bYou've got three people who all need each other."

She adds, "It asks what money can buy.. and how easily you can exploit people when you want something so badly."

Taking on the role of 18 year-old Kaya in The Nest is newcomer Mirren Mack.

She is a Scottish actress who has previously appeared in Netflix's hit series, Sex Education, playing asexual school actress, Florence.

In the series, she offers to become a surrogate for the couple after a chance meeting with Emily but are things as they appear or is there something shady about her?

James Harkness (James)

James, 31, grew up in Glasgows Gorgals.

On his 18th birthday he landed in hospital after an axe fight that took place in an elevator on the south side of Glasgow that made him all the more determined to focus on his acting career.
