The beloved actor went to add: “I would love to get Dame Judi Dench in as a character. That would be a laugh, or Sir Ian McKellen.

“I was blindsided by that,” he told The Telegraph.

“I thought there would be a lot of things that would come off the back of this part but definitely not being a sex symbol.”

What happens in Line of Duty series 6?

Last week, fans were treated to an exciting preview of the upcoming season.

In the trailer, Superintendent Hastings, says: “Gail Vella’s murder is this force’s highest-profile investigation.”

It also featured DCI Joanne Davidson (Kelly Macdonald) speaking with DI Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure).

She says: “Her life cut short… and whoever did it has got away with it.”
