CHARLOTTE RAMPLING HONORED WITH
SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARD® NOMINATION
FOR HER PERFORMANCE IN THE SUNDANCE CHANNEL ORIGINAL MINISERIES, RESTLESS
New York, December 12, 2012 – Charlotte Rampling was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award® today for her performance in Sundance Channel’s critically-acclaimed original miniseries, RESTLESS (which premiered earlier this month). Rampling received her first SAG nomination in the category of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries. The two-part miniseries (the second installment will air Friday, December 14th at 9 PM et/pt), directed by Edward Hall and penned by celebrated novelist William Boyd based on his novel of the same name, tells the thrilling story of a daughter who discovers that her mother was recruited as a spy during World War II.
Touted by The Hollywood Reporter as “superb…with an excellent cast and a stirring story… with enough intrigue, deceit, twists and lingering suspicions to lure you into its web,” the World War II spy thriller was also described by The Wall Street Journal as “richly textured.”
RESTLESS featured a dream cast made up of some of our industry’s finest talent,” said Sarah Barnett, Sundance Channel Executive VP and GM. “We congratulate Charlotte on her incredible performance and are so proud that her work has been recognized by the distinguished Screen Actors Guild.”
RESTLESS made its US premiere on Sundance Channel in December 2012. RESTLESS is made by Endor Productions in association with Sundance Channel for BBC One. The series is produced by Hilary Bevan Jones and Paul Frift for Endor and Executive Producers are William Boyd with Matthew Read for BBC and Christian Vesper for Sundance Channel.
