The Mercury Mall’s back drop will be featured in Tom Paton’s fourth feature film, Stairs. The cast and crew including Shayne Ward and his partner Sophie Austin were recently in the centre filming amongst the stairwells.

Tom’s second feature film Redwood won an award at the Romford Film Festival held earlier in the year.

“I was meant to be in Corrie for six months but stayed for three years,” said Shayne who plays Will Stanton.

“I’m really excited, it’s my first film, so I can’t wait to see the end result.

“I used to live in East London and know Romford well and when Tom sent over the script to me, I was really impressed - it’s very creative.”

Tom’s successful horror film Black Site closes this year’s FrightFest at the end of August in central London.

The film producer said: “The Mercury had the right tone I was looking for, so I phoned centre manager, Spencer Hawken, whom I’d met at the Romford Film Festival and, as they say, the rest is history.

“We’ve been here for two weeks with a cast and crew of about 30, working twelve-hour days and weekend filming, and I’d like to thank the team at The Mercury as everyone has been very supportive during filming.”

Stairs will be released in 2019.
