All backers of Double Yay Productions’ Nutritiously Nicola!, who chose the “Guy Titt” special reward, should have received one of these personalized autographs in their letter box by now.
Since Andrew Gower sadly had to drop out of the project due to scheduling conflicts with Carnival Row, Double Yay Productions couldn’t use a production still from the set of Nutritiously Nicola! (as originally planned) and we feel honoured (and just a “little” chuffed) that they asked to use one of our shots of Andrew at Creation Entertainment’s Outlander Vegas convention.
According to Deadline.com, Andrew was cast in a recurring role in a new show for Amazon Prime.
Carnival Row is described as a fantasy-noir set in a neo-Victorian city. Mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population. The series follows the investigation into a string of unsolved murders that are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists. It’s slated for premiere in 2019.
Gower will play Ezra Spurnrose, the scion of one of the most prominent families in the Burgue. When a business deal sours he finds himself under financial straights and reluctantly agrees, at his sister Imogen’s behest, to enter into a partnership with a wealthy Puck who has moved in across the street. When he begins to suspect that Imogen is falling in love with the Puck, Ezra will stop at nothing to protect his family’s reputation.
We wish him all the best for his new project, which we can’t wait to find out more about.
ETA: Double Yay Productions assured us that everyone, who backed Nutritiously Nicola! during their Kickstarter campaign and chose one of the Guy Titt perks, needn’t worry. Andrew will fulfull this commitment and you’ll receive your autographs etc soon!
Ahead of Andrew‘s Q&A tonight, Double Yay Productions released some more information on his character Guy Titt:
Andrew will be playing Guy Titt, a male fitness, food and lifestyle instagrammer who approaches Nicola for a collaboration as he believes that she will be good ‘content’.
Guy has millions of followers, a book deal (despite the fact he can’t read or write) and an infectious enthusiasm which convinces people that he must be talking a lot of sense. He convinces people to follow his lifestyle through an incessant use of the word ‘bosh!’ and a dislike for wearing shirts. He sees constant opportunities of workout and is, indeed, constantly working out, often in very inappropriate moments.
He is a very important character within the series, as he represents the growing male obsession with body image/eating/exercise. The common misconception is that eating disorders and body dysmorphia are female issues, but it’s effecting a growing number of men. Guy Titt definitely has an exercise addiction, and possibly a form of orthorexia.
Part of the criticism leveled at the recent Netflix film ‘To The Bone’, about eating disorders, was that it focused on the stereotypical image of a white, female, thin, middle-class, anorexic. With ‘Nicola’ we want to show that this is a problem which effects a wide spectrum of people, including men.
Whilst that all sounds very serious – it’s worth pointing out that the whole show is fairly surreal and weird at times – and Guy Titt is probably the most surreal of the lot. He’s going to be hilarious.
