Sherlock star Andrew Scott has joined the cast of Pride, British director Matthew Warchus’s gay pride comedy film.
Scott plays a character called Gethin in then movie, which centres around gay and lesbian activists and their support for Welsh miners during the infamous strikes of nearly 30 years ago.
Set during the summer of 1984, the film follows a group of gay and lesbian activists who decide to raise money to support the families of striking National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) members.
The union’s embarrassment at the donation prompts the activists to travel to a mining village in a minibus and make the donation in person.
Other cast members include Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West and Paddy Considine.
Best known for his Bafta-winning role as Moriarty in Sherlock, Scott can also be seen in current Irish comedy release The Stag.
