Merlin star Colin Morgan has been cast in series two of BBC Two’s bafta nominated drama The Fall.
Colin is playing DS Tom Anderson, an officer involved in the hunt for serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan). Morgan will join the cast, currently filming in Belfast, for the final three episodes of the second series and his character will work closely with Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson).
On his new role, Colin said: “I’m delighted to be joining the cast of The Fall for what is going to be an exciting and gripping second series. Allan Cubitt has written exceptional material and I feel very privileged to be working with him and the very talented cast.”
Colin’s arrival follows exciting news this week that The Fall has received two bafta nominations for series one. The Fall has been nominated for ‘Best Mini Series’ and Jamie Dornan is in the running for the coveted title of ‘Leading Actor’.
The Fall is a Fables Limited production in association with Artists Studio. It is written and directed by Allan Cubitt, produced by Gub Neal and Julian Stevens with Gillian Anderson, Justin Thomson-Glover and Patrick Irwin acting as executive producers.
The series was commissioned by Janice Hadlow, outgoing Controller of BBC Two and Ben Stephenson, Controller of Drama Commissioning, and executive produced by Stephen Wright through BBC Northern Ireland.
