BBC Press release on ‘Stolen’


  • The BBC Press Office

    has more on the BBC One film Stolen:

    Damian Lewis plays Detective Inspector Anthony Carter in a fast-paced thriller about human trafficking in Britain today, where

    children are brought here for a better life but end up working illegally outside the system.

    It’s a story of modern child slavery that demonstrates the broadening scope of single dramas on BBC One.

    Stolen follows the story of one man, Anthony (Lewis), and three children.

    Anthony works in the Human Trafficking Unit, battling to make a difference to the plight of exploited children being smuggled

    into the UK and from there, to anywhere and to any fate.

    Anthony has a wall of snapshots in his office of unknown children, children without passports, without identity, without

    family, without hope, who have been smuggled into this country to be enslaved and exploited: Rosemary 11, is a terrorised young

    girl from West Africa, who thought she was coming to England to be educated. She is sold as a house servant; Kim Pak, 15, is a

    gardener in a Vietnamese cannabis house, imprisoned in a semi in suburbia; Georgie, 14, from the Ukraine, is put to work in the

    food industry, making sandwiches.

    If Anthony could save just one of those faces on his wall, it would be worth it.


  • According to the online magazine, Blast, Damian Lewis has signed a limited amount of special edition art prints of Brian Fox’s portrait of Major

    Richard Winters. The portrait is part of The Major Richard Winters Leadership Project, a campaign to raise money for a monument

    in Normandy and a documentary film that will focus on Major Winters’ leadership during WWII. Damian Lewis will narrate the film.

    The actor will play a police officer tracking down trafficked children in Stolen on BBC1 next year.

    The film, directed by Justin Chadwick who made The Other Boleyn Girl starring Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson, follows the lives of three modern-day child slaves including a teenager forced to work in a cannabis factory and an 11-year-old girl sold as a house servant.

    Executive producer Polly Hill said: “It’s a thriller with an important story to tell and this combination makes for a very exciting drama, and one which we are thrilled has attracted Justin back to television.”

    From Digital Spy:

    Damian Lewis has signed up to star in a new BBC One thriller.

    Stolen focuses on Lewis’s character Detective Inspector Anthony Carter, who works in the human trafficking unit.

    The story follows Anthony as he tries to save three children who have been smuggled into the UK.

    The show’s executive producer Sita Williams said: “We have wanted to make this film for a very long time, and I’m delighted that the BBC has commissioned it – to bring this subject to a wider audience.”
