Filming begins on Baptiste, Jessica Raine joins cast

One thing we’re looking forward to is Missing spin-off, Baptiste, starring the fabulous Tchéky Karyo as the taciturn but very loveable, wise-old detective, Julien Baptiste.

We now hear that the Williams’ brothers new series has started filming and that Jessica Raine has joined the cast.

Furthermore, we’ve got some plotlines: When Julien and his wife are on a visit to Amsterdam, the Chief of Police – who also happens to be an old girlfriend – seeks out his help due to his renowned and methodical crime-solving skills.

Baptiste is rapidly embroiled in a case that looks beyond the beautiful streets, canals and houses of Amsterdam to the seamy underworld beneath.

Karyo, Hollander and Raine are joined by a stellar cast including Alec Secareanu (God’s Own Country), Clare Calbraith (Downton Abbey), Nicholas Woodeson (Taboo), Anastasia Hille (The Missing) and Talisa Garcia (Silent Witness).

Local Belgian talent includes Barbara Sarafian, Boris Van Severen, and Martha Canga.

Harry and Jack Williams said: “We are so pleased to welcome Jessica Raine to our brilliant cast; her talent and commitment are perfect for Genevieve and we’re really excited to see what she does with the character.”

Expect this early next year.
