Sir Trevor Macdonald will play the role of GamesMaster in the upcoming revival.
This classic British TV show returns after a 23-year absence. It will allow celebrities, game characters and fans to compete with each other in a series of challenges for the golden rocker trophy. The game is hosted by GamesMaster, and prompts the players.
MacDonald is a well-known British journalist and news announcer. He said that he is “very happy to play this iconic role for a new generation of viewers.” Later this year, he will meet with hosts Frankie Ward and Raab. Florence and Ty Logan starred in three 60-minute episodes.
The GamesMaster originally ran from 1992 to 1998, with astronomer Sir Patrick Moore playing the nominally incorporeal head. This was one of the first programs to bring video games to mainstream TV programs in a dedicated format, and became the main program for many people at the time.
