Grahame Fox

Grahame Fox - Answer our questions

Grahame plays the character of “Gilroy” in episode 4 of the new season.

Grahame was born in Cardiff, South Wales. Throughout his school days he was actively involved in drama production both in school and out. On leaving school he detoured and became an artist for a while before rediscovering the stage and later formed his own theatre company. He has worked extensively in Theatre and is a busy voice artist.

His credits include films “Judas Ghost”, “Chosen”, and TV shows "Game of Thrones", “Endeavour”, “Midsummer Murders” and “Casualty”.

How did you get the part in the show?
Simon Pearce (director of episode 4) and I first worked together on horror film, ‘Judas Ghost’, and have been looking forward to working together again ever since. He’s great to work with, so when Simon got in touch and asked if I would be interested in playing ‘Gilroy’, the answer was of course! I think Vin Diesel was unavailable.

What were the highlights from the shooting of the show? Things you haven’t done before etc?
Well, I’ve never filmed in a working morgue before. That was a first. The highlight was definitely working with Simon, Paul and the team. They’re very well versed and enthusiastic.

What was the hardest part of working on the show? Lots of lines, working with VFX, action stuff?
After a long day, probably trying to keep a straight face! Bearing in mind where we were filming, corpsing felt more inappropriate than ever... it all started with a bit of ink.

Regarding the craft of acting, what did you learn about or what might you do differently?
Learn your lines from the same script as everyone else... it saves time. And never get distracted by a wardrobe malfunction, it ends in tears!

Finally, what would you do if the events of the show really happened?!
If I came into contact with them, I’d say, “if you’re still doing that probing thing you do, then this is the man for you”, and give them a picture of Trump. They might feel sorry for us.
