Gabriel Gilmour on set of Downton Abbey 2013 (Click to Enlarge)
Two of David Gilmour’s children have landed parts as extras in the hit TV drama Downton Abbey.
The fourth season of the period drama will have eight episodes and will be broadcast in the UK in the autumn on ITV, and early next year on PBS in the United States. There will also be a Christmas special.
The ITV period drama has Gabriel Gilmour, 16 and Romany Gilmour, 11, performing as extras in the hit series which should mean Sunday evening’s at the Gilmour’s Brighton home in the UK should be that much more fun! Filming for the new series started in February 2013 and should be concluding shortly. Picture on right is in Bampton, Oxfordshire.
Downton Abbey has attracted some of the largest TV audiences over the past three series and season four should be equally as popular.

Phil G William as Wilfred Owen
Liverpool icon and satirist John Gorman has written and directed the new touring version of Dean Johnson’s Wilfred Owen musical, Bullets And Daffodils.
The ex-Scaffold and Tiswas frontman joins a long line of illustrious contributors such as actor Christopher Timothy and guitar legend David Gilmour. The Pink Floyd guitarist has granted permission for a solo recording to be used as part of the show’s score.
Dean says, “Mr Gilmour wanted to do everything he could do to help and sanctioned the track There’s No Way Out Of Here gratis and waivering the licence and publishing fees, so it was in every sense a donation.”
John Gorman has been on board since day one of this project. He has always been at the vanguard of cutting edge projects.
Commenting on what drew him to the project, Mr Gorman said, “Wilfred Owen died a week before the end of the First World War: the war to end all wars. Owen’s poems demonstrate the gruesome awfulness that happened to these men through no fault of their own. Dean brings to the foreground the message that the war is not a good thing, which I’m behind 100%.”
A special preview of Bullets And Daffodils takes place at Fort Perch Rock, New Brighton on 8 March, and visits The Forum Theatre, Chester on 10 March, and The Citadel, St Helens, on 16 March.
