TWO talented Stourbridge drama school pupils have won parts in a new BBC police corruption drama starring Neil Morrisey and Gina McKee.

Gregory Piper, aged 13 and Jordyn-Eve Davis-Greene, 11, have clinched parts in the five-part BBC2 show Line of Duty.

Written and produced by the creator of Bodies and Cardiac Arrest, Jed Mercurio, the series, based on a mistaken police shooting, will air early next year.

Windsor High pupil Gregory, of Haden Close, Dudley, will play Ryan Pilkington, a troubled youngster who gets caught up in the action.

Jordyn-Eve, of Whittington Road, Stourbridge, plays Natalie Tate, the daughter of a corrupt detective inspector played by Lennie James.

Both attend the group Dramaworkshop, run by Esther Stanford and based at Chawn Hill church in Stourbridge.

Esther said: “I’m so proud of them.

“They have done fantastically well. Gregory only joined us about three months ago. They have just done brilliantly.

“I’m ecstatic for them - it was the first audition for both of them.”

Dramaworkshop is linked to First Act Workshops in Birmingham, which it gets its auditions through.

Gregory and Jordyn-Eve, who starts Redhill School in Stourbridge in September, will be busy filming for the show in Coventry until November.
