Curfew and Sean Bean 5 - pic by David Bloor Photography

These pictures capture Game of Thrones screen star Sean Bean and his Sky TV team in Crewe as they film the new drama series, Curfew.

Bean and his co-stars Adrian Lester, Robert Glenister, Phoebe Fox and Malachi Kirby have been in South Cheshire for two days and nights filming scenes from the new series due on Sky One.

Local photographers flocked to the area of the town centre cordoned off by film crews close to the Bus Station, Charles Street and Victoria Street where scenes were shot.

The drama series sees contestants going head to head in the ultimate driving contest.

Richard Ross, of Thunderbolt Photography, and David Bloor, of David Bloor Photography, were two of the photographers who captured Bean with co-stars and scores of film and set crew last night.

Production company Tiger Aspect Productions had issued letters to local residents before arriving on set last night.

Cherry pickers have been positioned in Delamere Street and behind Vernon’s fish and chip ship to film the action.

Night scenes have involved some stunt driving, with Charles Street and part of Victoria Street closed to vehicles and pedestrians.

More filming is due to take place tonight and through until 4.30am tomorrow (March 23).

The eight-part Sky production is scheduled to be screened on Sky One and TV streaming service NOW TV next year.

It follows the story of ordinary people competing in the world’s fastest, most furious, illegal night-time street race.

Challengers risk everything as they race through the night from London to northernmost Scotland in their pimped-out, weaponised vehicles to win the ultimate prize — freedom from the totalitarian government curfew that controls their lives.

Sky’s head of drama Anne Mensah said: “When Sky does dramas about car races, we do them like no other broadcaster.

“Funny, emotionally truthful, visceral and above all fast – Curfew is the perfect Sky One show.

“Matthew Read has created fantastically memorable, sometimes shocking, always fascinating characters. You’ll want every single one of them to win the race of their lives.”

Matthew Read, executive producer and writer, said: “Sky have been incredibly supportive throughout the development of such a bold and ambitious show and I couldn’t be more pleased by the creative team that has been assembled to deliver a story that we have filled with as much excitement, emotion and dynamism as possible.”
