A HOST of vampires, werewolves and ghosts have returned to Barry!

Cast and crew from BBC supernatural drama Being Human are back in the town to film the fourth series of the cult hit, after basing themselves here for the third series last year.

And Barry resident Gary Rowe has once again welcomed them all into his home, which earlier this year featured on screen as the main characters’ guesthouse of choice.

Mike Gallivan, 3rd assistant director on Being Human series two, three, and now four, said: "I think series three was our strongest. Barry accepted us and we couldn't have picked a better place to go.

"We are very excited about series four. There is so much going on I don't know where to start.

"We've got some great new locations and all the crew are glad to be back," he added.

"Barry and Barry Island have become really popular on Twitter and I think it's good for the town."

Gary Rowe, who owns the house where the characters live, welcomed the return of the cast and crew.

"We get on well with them, but what takes you aback is how much work goes into a ten-second shoot," he said.

"It's a bit of a buzz to see the house on screen."

Filming is ongoing with series four expected to air in 2012.
