As grieving Without Sin character Stella, Vicky McClure smashes a car window and steals a bag.
Vicky McClure was seen smashing a car window and stealing a bag on the set of her new thriller Without Sin, and the first scenes have been released.
Last week, the Line Of Duty actress, 38, was spotted on the set of the new ITV miniseries in her hometown of Nottingham, where she played DI Kate Fleming in the BBC drama.
Vicky found herself faking a crime while filming her scene as grieving Uber driver Stella Tomlinson, who had lost her 14-year-old daughter Maisy three years before.
As Stella, Vicky looked tense as she got into a red Volkswagen Golf and drove away in a grey taxi.
Vicky was seen filming on a dark night in the city, wearing a long grey coat and a wooly hat.
Without Sin, a four-part psychological thriller set to be released later this year, follows grieving mother Stella as she explores a developing relationship with the man she believes murdered her daughter.
A hooded Charles Stone stood over Maisy as she was found dead at the family home.
Johnny Harris, 48, who recently starred in BBC drama The Salisbury Poisonings, will play Charles alongside Vicky.
Vicky and Charles will be reunited on-screen for the first time since the 2010 Channel 4 drama This Is England ’86. Without Sin is written by Nottingham-born Frances Poletti.
Vicky’s character Stella’s life has been complicated by the loss of her daughter, and she has chosen to work as an Uber driver at night to make ends meet.
She spends time away from her estranged husband Paul, who still lives in the house.
Maisy’s parents are contacted by Restorative Justice, and they are brought together to listen to tapes recorded by Maisy’s killer, who they believe wants to apologize for her death.
Stella returns to the Millfields estate, where she grew up, to see her mother Jessie and best friend Remy in the hopes of gaining some stability before paying a visit to Charles in prison, but she is unprepared for what he has to say.
‘Without Sin is a brilliantly compelling story while carefully dealing with a mother’s grief at the loss of her daughter,’ ITV head of drama Polly Hill said of the series, adding, ‘It’s hard to believe this is Frances’ first drama series commission.’
‘Watching Vicky and Johnny in their roles as Stella and Charles will be addictive.
‘I’m thrilled to be collaborating with BYO Films and Left Bank Pictures to bring this to ITV this year.’
