Line Of Duty star Vicky McClure says she 'always' fears being killed off

Writer Jed's got the whole cast worried!

Line Of Duty star Vicky McClure has revealed that she is "always" worried her character will either be killed off or exposed as a baddie.

Asked if she was worried about being written out, Vicky told Red: "I think we all are. We all know we're always teetering on the vulnerable side of life because Line Of Duty always delivers a sort of completely shocking killing or complete twist. Or whatever it might be."

She added: "You just never know if it's going to involve you. I remember when Craig Parkinson's character Dot died, he was so glad that Jed does it in a way that is right for the story, right for the character, and it's dramatic enough and there's enough for you to go on. We all hope we make it, though."

Vicky heaped praise on the show's writer and said she has no clue where Jed's going next because she doesn't have "that skill in my brain" to "conjure" it up.

She said: "He's an extremely creative writing genius. I would never be able to predict because I've never been able to predict before. Every series I'm picking up the script thinking, I didn't see that coming."

The actress also confirmed that filming for the new series is yet to begin and she said that she hasn't seen any scripts yet.

However, Vicky revealed a lack of scripts was something she was glad about, because she's always worried she'll "slip up" during press interviews for the show.
