Casualty pay tribute to Series Designer Owain Williams

Casualty has paid tribute to their Series Designer Owain Williams – someone who worked on the medical drama for many years.

As a former Wales, Cardiff, Bridgend and Glamorgan Wanderers rugby player, Owain’s death follows his older brother Gareth, who died in 2018.

During his career, Owain captained Wales and spent a season playing for leading Australian team Queensland.

Away from his sporting success, Owain worked as a television set constructor and spent many years on the set of BAFTA winning Casualty.

Yesterday (September 13), the BBC Casualty Twitter account posted their tribute to Owain, writing: ‘Very sad news today at the passing of our dear friend and Series Designer of many years, Owain Williams. We’ll miss you Ow.’

The account re-shared a video from 2018 that saw Owain show viewers the wonderful world of sets and design aspects that it takes to create an episode of Casualty.
