Silent Witness’s Liz Carr is making serious moves in Hollywood following her sensational exit from the BBC show in last night’s series 23 finale.

Following Dr Thomas Chamberlain’s heartbreaking death, emotional scenes from the episode showed her character, Clarissa Mullery, bow out after eight years, prompting the 47-year-old actress to announce she’d landed her first-ever blockbuster film role not soon after.

‘Yes, I have left Silent Witness,’ she tweeted as she shared an interview delving into what she’s up to next.

Liz has bagged a part alongside A-lister Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming sci-fi film Infinite, which is due to hit cinemas this August.

The movie has been directed by Antoine Fuqua, the man behind the likes of Training Day and The Magnificent Seven, and Liz plays a character named Garrick.

‘It’s a great role. I’m ecstatic,’ Liz enthused. ‘I thought, I bet they’re just going to audition wheelchair-users and then they’re going to give the role to Tom Cruise.’

Filming began back in September, with scenes being shot in Cardiff, an indoor ski centre and Farnborough airport.

Hollywood blockbuster aside, Liz is also set to return to the small screen once again for huge American drama Devs, which is set to premiere on Hulu in March.

Liz is set to showcase her talent alongside several huge names in the eight-episode show, including American Horror Story and Star Trek Picard star Alison Pill and Parks And Recreation’s Nick Offerman.

This, however, won’t be the first time Liz has taken American television by storm.

Last March, the 47-year-old actress played Dr Marlow Rhodes in the Netflix phenomenon The OA, next to The Office’s Phyllis Smith, Jason Isaacs and Zendaya (to name but a few).

Ahead of the second season airing, she tweeted: ‘I’m ridiculously excited to be watching it @netflix today! To be part of the beautiful enigma that is #TheOA is truly a thrill & honour.’

Sadly, the Netflix show was cancelled in August leaving both cast and fans devastated.

Addressing the news, Liz said: ‘The show was groundbreaking in so many ways and because of how it reflected the reality of our world and the glorious people who make up this world and other worlds we may live in.’

Despite the cancellation, it’s clear that Liz’s career has gone from strength to strength and we can’t wait to see what Liz gets up to next!

Silent Witness is available for catch-up on BBC iPlayer.
