November 28, 20233 Mins Read

Eagle-eyed fans of the Rise of the Footsoldier franchise may have spotted the Adventure Island and Stockvale boss in the opening scenes of the latest film, Vengeance.

Mr Miller appeared as an extra in the opening scene where an injured man can be seen riding the Mighty Mini Mega ride at the seafront theme park. 

The cast and crew for the film had been spotted across Southend filming throughout October last year, with star of the show Craig Fairbrass, who plays Pat Tate, sharing images on social media of the production at the time.

Taking to Twitter, Mr Miller joked: “Who needs the seafront, Hollywood here I come”.

During the filming, he was on-hand to take the cast and crew around the park and up to the ride where he got to be a part of the action.

He said: “We enjoyed having the film crew at Adventure Island after hosting countless films shows over the years.

“It made a pleasant change to be a part of the action.

“I’ve yet to watch it although one of my guards showed me my clip which was interesting.

“I doubt if I’ll give up my day job although in saying that if Brad Pitt needs a replacement I could be persuaded.”

It comes as the park filmed a Doctor Who reunion trailer for the programme’s The Collection Blu-ray range back in July.

The Rise of the Footsoldier series is a British crime and gangster film franchise known for its brutal violence and gritty depiction of underworld crime.

In the series, Fairbrass plays Pat Tate, the notorious real-life Essex drug dealer who was found dead alongside two other drug dealers in a Range Rover near the village of Rettendon on December 6, 1995.

The sixth film, which has a rating of 6.3 out of 10 on IMDB, follows Tate as he goes on a rampage to avenge his loyal and trusted footsoldier’s violent death.

To track down the killer, Tate ventures beyond his comfort zone of Essex and into the dark side of 90s Soho – although many scenes were filmed in Essex.

Alongside Fairbrass, the film also features movie stars including Phil Davis, Josh Myers, Geoff Bell, Emily Wyatt and Jamie Foreman.
