WARREN BROWN ON GOOD COP
Rising star Warren Brown, hot on the heels of Luther and Inside Men, has the lead role in another quality BBC crime drama – Good Cop – which starts on BBC-1 later this month. Here he talks about what drew him to the role.
Of the production he says “As soon as I read the script I knew I wanted to be part of this project. Good Cop is fantastically written and to be given the opportunity to play such a complex character is something every actor dreams of.”
Talking about taking on the role, Warren says: “It was certainly the biggest thing I’d done to date. It’s the hardest I’ve ever had to work, but I loved the challenge and thrived off it. I was pretty much in every single scene, so I was first in and last out! “
Warren is also known for playing DS Justin Ripley in BBC One’s Luther. Some of the drama’s crew members went on to work on Good Cop, including director Sam Miller, who directed the first two episodes.
Warren says: “I had the confidence and felt safe in the fact that I knew the director starting it off. Sam’s such a fantastic director and I wholeheartedly trusted him. Everyone in each department we were working with were great so that makes you feel a bit more secure.”
Talking about the character he plays Warren had this to say “Sav does his job to the best of his ability and he’s an honest man. He’s got great values and you also get to see his relationship with his dad (played by Michael Angelis) who he’s caring for. But there’s a circle of events that start and Sav gets drawn into a situation where he has to make a decision, and the decision he makes affects the rest of his life and how it’s going to play out.”
Good Cop is a four parter that will air on BBC-1 later this month.
