‘Game of Thrones’ Actress Natalia Tena Joins ‘The Refugees’

BBC Worldwide and Atresmedia Television co-produce new English-language sci-fi drama

CANNES — “Game of Thrones” actress Natalia Tena will star in “The Refugees” – a new English-language sci-fi drama co-produced by BBC Worldwide and Atresmedia Television.

The British actress of Spanish heritage is best known for her role as Osha in “Game of Thrones,” but she also played Nymphadora Tonks in the “Harry Potter” films.

“The Refugees” will begin filming this summer before premiering on La Sexta in Spain in the autumn. BBC Worldwide will act as co-producer, commissioner for international channels, and global distributor. The director and remaining cast will be announced in due course. Tom Grieves (“Law and Order UK,” “Being Human”) is acting as a script consultant on the series.

“The Refugees,” which has been created by Ramon Campos, Gema R. Neira, Cristobal Garrido and Adolfo Valor, will be produced by Bambu Producciones, producer of “Grand Hotel,” which airs in the U.K. on Sky Arts.

The series explores the impact on a small rural community after millions of refugees from the future travel back in time to seek shelter in the present.

Atresmedia Television has been part of hit series such as “El tiempo entre costuras” (Time and Needlework), “Galerias Velvet” (Velvet), “Gran Hotel” (Grand Hotel), “Luna” (Moon), “El Internado” (The Boarding School), “El barco” (The Ship) and “El secreto de Puente Viejo” (The Secret of Puente Viejo), among others.
