Will Attenborough plays her son, David Brindsley. Will has just wrapped on Apocalypse Slough for NBC playing a guest lead, and is currently filming as the lead in Midwinter of the Spirit for ITV opposite Anna Maxwell Martin.

Adam Long plays Jack Heaton. Last year he was seen in another World War drama, playing Anthony in the BBC's Passing Bells. Adam will soon be seen as Tom, the lead role in Jack Thorne's new BBC Three drama My Baby.
