Actor Ashley Walters has revealed that he won’t be in the first series of the much-anticipated BBC series “Taboo” after his character was pushed to the second series - and admitted that he is “devastated”.
“Taboo” stars Tom Hardy as an adventurer who returns to London from Africa, only to discover that his father has left him a mysterious legacy.
Ashley was due to play a “dangerous face” from Hardy’s character’s past but he said we shouldn’t expect to see him in the first batch of episodes, reported Digital Spy.
“My character was meant to be in season one, but basically it got pushed to season two, so I’ll make an appearance in season two,” he said.
“They’re still filming season one and I don’t come in until season two. So, I won’t start filming until next year, probably. Which was a shock to me. Literally, I heard about it three weeks before I was about to start shooting. I was devastated, to be honest - I’m not going to lie. But it’s the nature of the beast.”
Ashley has just finished filming a series of shorts for All4 called “Top Dad”, in which he investigates fatherhood and meets different parents from all walks of life.
