Vera star reveals all about axed scenes that will never make it to air ahead of series finale

March 4, 2022

VERA star Ibinabo Jack has revealed the ins and outs behind axed scenes ahead of the series finale.

The remaining episodes of series 11 of Vera are expected to air on ITV later this year and will see DCI Stanhope back to solve a string of murders.


However, Vera will not be on her own, as they also have DC Mark Edwards and DC Jac Williams to help them behind the scenes.

Ibinabo Jack landed her role in the ITV series in 2018 and has played DC Jac Williams ever since.

Before Vera, the actress had never worked in TV before although she had featured in many West End Show including the likes of Dreamgirls and The Bodyguard.

Speaking to the Daily Express, Ibinabo explained some scenes don’t make the final cut because of a number of blunders.

She went on to detail one particular shot, where Kenny had to “fake” a scene.

The actress began: “There are so many things that happen that don't make the final because we couldn't keep it together or certain shots that just looked funny.

“Kenny had to do a thing of pretending to walk down a flight of stairs.

“The stairs didn't exist, so we had to fake that he was going down the stairs and on set it looked ridiculous, but brilliant when we watched the episode back.”

On working with lead lady Brenda, the 39-year-old said she loves that the actress is nothing like her character.

“She's very good at welcoming people and I do see it now that I'm a regular,” Ibinabo explained.

“And when you've got guest actors in, she's very good at putting people at ease and she's very open-hearted and makes everyone feel comfortable.”

Vera is expected to air on ITV later this year.
