Anonymous: what is 'Suspects' and what is Emmett's role in it?

From the Channel 5 Suspects website

Shot in the style of a fly on-the-wall documentary, Suspects is unscripted, with the cast devising their own dialogue based on a detailed plot description.

Set in London, each episode is a self-contained story, starting with a news report, then following the team of three detectives as they investigate the circumstances the crime. The cases themselves are hard-hitting with contemporary themes.

The first series aired with very positive reviews in the press (like this one) and the cast is headed by Fay Ripley, Damien Molony and Clare-Hope Ashitey.

Judging by filming photos it looks like Emmett is playing a solicitor. The improvised dialogue will have made for a new acting experience for him so I’m excited to see it when it airs.

Anonymous: Have you any news about Personal Appearance ?

I haven’t, sorry. I can guarantee as soon as I know anything I’ll post about it! (I’m eager to see it again myself). At the premiere Toby Everett said the difficulty in releasing the DVD/downloads was that if it leaked online then it would be ineligible to enter any film festivals - so I think they were holding out for a while. In the meantime I’m sure if you tweet Toby he might be able to let you know.

"You’ve got Emmett Scanlan in [Charlie Casanova], giving an iconic performance. But Scanlan’s such a hateful prick as Charlie that you think it’s him, you think it’s real. Yet he’s one of the hardest working, most magnificent, blokes you could ever meet."
