Generations of Thunderbirds fans remember him as the devoted chauffeur behind the wheel in Lady Penelope’s pink Rolls Royce in Thunderbirds.
Now it has been announced that the actor who uttered those familiar words “Yes M’Lady” is to reprise the role in a remake of the 1960s TV series.
David Graham is the only original cast member to return in Thunderbirds Are Go! which will air on ITV in 2015.
Former Bond actress Rosamund Pike will play Lady Penelope.
The new show, now in production, will be a mix of CGI animation and live-action miniature sets.
“I am triple chuffed to be on board the new series of Thunderbirds Are Go! and reprising my role of dear old Parker with such a distinguished cast,” said Graham.
“My driving skills are in good nick and I am delighted to be behind the wheel again with M’Lady.”
Rosamund Pike, who starred in 2002’s Die Another Day and the recent sci-fi comedy film The World’s End, said she was “very excited to bring Lady Penelope’s wry wit and taste for adventure” to a new generation.
“Exploring the scenes with David Graham has been an absolute delight. The scripts are very modern, very fresh and very funny. We’re all eagerly anticipating our next stint in the recording studio!”
Thunderbirds, created by Gerry Anderson and his second wife, Sylvia, was first broadcast on ITV in 1965. Anderson died last year aged 83.
We’ve got our first look of Rosamund as Amy Dunne on the set of Gone Girl. She was spotted shooting a scene on September 20. Three photos have been added to our gallery!
Five middle-aged friends set out to relive a beer-fueled odyssey from their youth, and end up in an epic battle to save humankind in the outrageous comedy The World’s End, available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, including Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD with UltraViolet, DVD and On Demand on November 19, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

Directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), The World’s End’s irresistible humor has made it the toast of film reviewers across the nation.

This is the third and final film in Wright’s The Ultimate Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy, which also features hits Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz starring Pegg and Frost, available exclusively on Blu-ray November 19th.
The World’s End also stars Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes), and Rosamund Pike (Jack Reacher). The Blu-ray Combo Pack serves up more than two hours of bonus content, including a gag reel, feature commentary with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and an insider’s look at the making of the funniest reunion picture ever made.
