Holliday Grainger joins co-star Tom Burke on the set of new Strike thriller Troubled Blood as she returns to work nine months after giving birth to twins


Holliday Grainger was joined by Tom Burke on Saturday evening as she returned to work little more than eight months after giving birth to twins. 

The actress filmed early scenes for Troubled Blood, the third in a series of TV adaptations based on the popular Strike book franchise from Robert Galbraith – the literary pseudonym used by Harry Potter author JK Rowling. 

Preparing for an after-dark location shoot in Buckinghamshire village Fulmer, Holliday, 33, was accompanied by leading man Tom, 40, and a small crew as they waited on a residential street.

The actress will return as crime-solving secretary Robin Ellacott in the new series, which is expected to air later this year, while Tom reprises his role as jaded detective Cormorant Blue Strike. 

With cameras rolling, they were seen exchanging words with an elderly woman after climbing from the front seats of a parked Land Rover Defender. 

Principal photography for the new series began in London at the turn of the year, with work expected to run for a maximum of 11-weeks. 

Troubled Blood is the fifth book in Galbraith’s noir-inspired Cormorant series and the third to be adapted for the screen.

Holliday and her actor boyfriend Harry Treadaway welcomed twins in May 2021. The couple have been dating since 2015. 

The doting parents were spotted enjoying a stroll with their newborns in Devon, where they moved soon after Holliday learned that she was expecting, shortly after their birth. 

The couple cradled the babies in papooses to protect them from the weather as they went window-shopping before having lunch at a small café.

Last September, The Mail on Sunday revealed that work on the second series of her hit BBC drama The Capture had been put on hold due to her pregnancy. 

However, it was not known until May that the actress was expecting twins.

For boyfriend Harry, who played Princess Margaret’s toyboy Roddy Llewellyn in The Crown, the new arrivals were an extra-special occasion as he is a twin himself. 

His identical twin Luke is also an actor, last seen in the ITV drama The Singapore Grip.
