Jason Wong joins Silent Witness

Wong has joined the cast of BBC One’s long-running drama Silent Witness, which is currently filming its 24th series and will star alongside Emilia Fox.


The explosive conclusion of Series 23, in February 2020, shocked audiences with the departure of two of the series’ regular characters, Clarissa Mullery and Dr Thomas Chamberlain, played by Liz Carr and Richard Lintern.


Series 24 finds Dr Nikki Alexander and Jack Hodgson looking forward to the future. However buried secrets and memories soon surface, and, when ghosts from the past emerge, the two are forced increasingly close to one another.


The arrival of Jason Wong's character, Adam Yuen, disturbs this new dynamic. A confident, bright and keen pathologist who’s constantly striving to be the best, he immediately rubs Nikki and Jack up the wrong way. Will Adam find his own way to fit in and last at the Lyell?


Speaking about joining the show, Jason Wong said "I am so excited to be joining Silent Witness, like everyone else I have been a huge fan of the show for years and to be becoming part of the family feels like a huge privilege. I can't wait for audiences to see all we have in store for them in this new series."


To which Emilia Fox added "It’s fantastic to be back filming Series 24 of Silent Witness with five terrific new storylines, our wonderful crew, great new casts for each story and to be welcoming the very lovely and talented Jason Wong to the Lyell team, who is an absolute joy to work with!"
