Exciting announcement!

We can finally reveal that our wonderful SHYKO AMOS will be joining the cast of much beloved BBC One Caribbean crime drama Death In Paradise as a new regular character for the show's eighth series, currently filming in Guadeloupe.

Shkyo will play Officer Ruby Patterson. Fresh out of police college, Officer Patterson is more than just an eager new recruit – she’s also Commissioner Patterson’s niece, which presents the team with a challenge or two. While they get to know their new arrival, Ruby quickly realises that life as a police officer in Saint Marie is far from quiet...

In an official press release for the show, Shyko said: "...it hasn't quite sunk in yet that I’ve joined such a massively popular show. It's given me a butterfly or two but I'm very excited! Officer Ruby Patterson is a bundle of joy! I am very excited for viewers to experience her as the new member of the already amazing law enforcement team of Saint Marie".

Executive Producer, Tim Key, said: We’re delighted to welcome Shyko to the team. She’s a really exciting young actor who has already made a huge impact on set as Officer Ruby Patterson”.

Series Eight will air on BBC One in 2019. We can't wait!
