An actor from Ellesmere Port has appeared as a murderer in a TV series on Britain’s darkest taboos.
Steve Peace, now 34, from Overpool, Great Sutton, started acting with Action Transport Theatre when he was 17.
On Sunday, March 23, he was seen on the Crime and Investigation channel’s Britain’s Darkest Taboos series as the murderer Carl Mills.
In September 2012, 27-year-old Mills murdered three generations of the same family in a house fire in Cwmbran, South Wales.
Mills set the fire then stood and watched as his six-month-old daughter Kimberley, her mother and his girlfriend, 17-year-old Kayleigh, and Kayleigh’s mum Kim all perished.
The channel said:“In this powerful and emotional episode we hear from Kim’s mum, Gwyneth Swain, who lost her daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter that night.
“We also had interviews with Kim’s partner Dai, her best friends and the neighbours who witnessed the fire that night.
“DSI Peter Jones, of Gwent Police, described the investigation that resulted in Mills being convicted of the murders and sentenced to 35 years in prison.
“With expert analysis from forensic psychologist Dr Keri Nixon and psychologist Emma Kenny, we examined Mills’s behaviour prior to the murders, plus we revealed the devastating impact familial homicide has on those left behind.”
Recently, Steve has appeared in Hollyoaks , Coronation Street , Emmerdale , a Brian May music video and has been cast in adverts with footballers Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney.
He has recently finished filming Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell for the BBC which will be shown in the New Year.
