'White Gold' Cast: All The Familiar Faces From BBC Two's Brand New Comedy Drama

1980s Essex is brought to screen.

‘White Gold’ arrives on BBC Two this evening, with writer Damon Beesley hoping he can repeat the success of his previous project ‘The Inbetweeners’, with this tale of tireless double-glazing salesmen on the make in 1980s Essex.

The set-up is inspired by the trials and tribulations of the father of Damon, who told HuffPostUK - even as he despaired of finding the right person for the central role of Vincent Swan - “I needed a 30-year-old actor who thought he was a film star - and than an actual film star walked in.”
