Filming News: Line of Duty

 

 

Filming on Line of Duty series 3 has begun!

Speaking about the role, Daniel Mays says: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the unbelievably talented cast of Line Of Duty series three. Jed Mercurio has once again delivered a thrilling and emotionally raw script, which I feel incredibly honoured to be a part of.”

Daniel Mays will play Sergeant Danny Waldron, the highly proficient leader of an Armed Response Unit whose unpredictable behaviour is becoming a threat to colleagues and suspects. When AC-12 are called in to investigate Danny’s conduct, even they could find themselves in the firing line. Mays joins returning cast Martin Compston as Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott, Vicky McClure as Detective Constable Kate Fleming and Adrian Dunbar as Superintendent Ted Hastings.

The Red Lion 

Daniel Mays in his National Theatre debut!

The Red Lion

Passion. Loyalty. Salvation. 

Small-time semi-pro football, the non-league. A world away from the wealth and the television cameras. A young player touched with brilliance arrives from nowhere. An ambitious manager determines to make him his own. And the old soul of the club still has dreams of glory.

A haunting and humorous new play about the dying romance of the great English game – and the tender, savage love that powers it.

Patrick Marber returns to premiere a fifth play at the National Theatre, where his previous work includes Dealer’s Choice and Closer.

The Red Lion is now booking for performances beginning 3 June.

Seekers is a sitcom about a Job Centre in the Essex town of Rayleigh. Daniel Mays portrays Joe: Joe doesn’t need a job – winding up Stuart is a full-time occupation already.
