Love/Hate star lands major role in upcoming Halo TV series
We're very excited for this.
Remember how many hours you spent playing Halo growing up?
Maybe you were a solo player who loved a good old fashioned story mode campaign?
Or maybe you preferred to play online with a group. Either way, we'd wager that if you owned a game console in the 2000s, you also played a Halo game at some point.
But if you were a die-hard fan of the gaming franchise, you'll surely be buzzing for the new television show that is based on the games.
And the best thing about it? It's got a touch of Irishness in it.
Charlie Murphy, best known for her roles as Siobhan in Love/Hate and Jessie Eden in Peaky Blinders, will play Makee, an orphan raised by the alien Covenant that harbours a hatred of humans.
The character appears to be an original creation for the series, and not one that appears in the Halo games.

It was announced in June of 2019 that Showtime had ordered a 10-episode series based on the beloved video game, though its order has since been trimmed to nine episodes.
There's no exact release date for the show, but with production about to begin, it is expected to reach our screens in 2021.
Bring it on.
