British actor Nick Moran was shocked to learn CSI: MIAMI is filmed in Los Angeles, after he landed a guest role on the hit detective TV show.

The LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS star appeared in an episode of the programme in December (05), and admits he was looking forward to relaxing on Florida's Miami Beach.

Moran says, "I thought we'd be spending most of the shoot in Florida after a couple of days prepping work in LA and I was looking forward to hanging out on Ocean Drive.

"But when I got to California, I learned that they shoot the entire show in an LA studio and simply use a backdrop whenever they need to get in a picture of the Miami skyline. I was a bit disappointed - getting to hang out in Miami was part of the reason I took the job."
