WARREN Brown is set to star in his biggest role yet.
The Luther actor, who will start filming for series three at the end of the year, is the lead in Good Cop which debuts on BBC One next Thursday, August 30, at 9pm.
Thirty-four-year-old Warren, who was born in Great Sankey but grew up in Westbrook, said: “You read a lot of really, really good scripts, but every now and again one really sticks out.
“From the minute I read the first episode it was like, ‘right, I need to be involved in this project and I need to see more’.”
He plays John Paul Rocksavage, aka Sav, a Liverpudlian beat cop whose life is thrown into disarray following one eventful day. After a tough thug by the name of Finch (played by Stephen Graham of This Is England and Boardwalk Empire fame) swears violent retribution against the officer for intervening in a conflict at a diner, Sav’s partner is subjected to a violent beating during the pair's next shift.
l Meanwhile former Britain’s Got Talent George Sampson stars in the latest series of comedy drama Mount Pleasant.
It started on Sky Living yesterday, Wednesday, and sees the former Birchwood High School student play Bianca’s stepson student Gary.
He will be joined in the show by Robson Green and Angela Griffin in the series. The 19-year-old former Waterloo Road star said: “I just auditioned like everyone else and I got really lucky in the audition because the part is for a kid who loves football, and I’m quite good at football.
“They had a football and they made us do 20 keepie uppies. On any other day I wouldn’t have been able to do it, but on the day I nailed it. I think that’s why I got the part.”
