Line Of Duty Boss Praises Fans' ‘Outstanding Detective Work’ After Leak About Major Actor’s Role
Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio has praised the “outstanding detective work” by some of the show’s viewers after a scene featuring a previously unannounced actor was accidentally leaked.On Tuesday, Maestro – the BBC’s educational page dedicated to tutorials from big names – featured a glimpse of the major actor in a clip and photo included on the website.The pic, which appears in a forthcoming episode, depicts Detective Inspector Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) looking over a database of characters.One of the faces visible in the database reportedly belonged to the well-known new cast member, whose involvement in Line of Duty had previously not been announced.A short scene involving the star was also available to view on the site.After each episode of the drama is aired, BBC Maestro shares excerpts from the show, with Jed narrating his thought process behind the plot.But this week, users were able to access the course trailer for next Sunday’s episode — including scenes featuring the new actor and a crucial twist.Addressing the gaff, Jed made light of the spoiler, telling The Sun: “The outstanding detective work of eagle-eyed Line of Duty fans has been awarded a glowing commendation from the gaffer himself, Supt Ted Hastings.“Their call-up papers for AC-12 are in the post!”Another familiar face is set to return to the BBC drama in this Sunday’s episode.It has been announced that fan favourite Anna Maxwell Martin is returning as AC-3 boss Superintendent Patricia Carmichael.Anna appeared as the no-nonsense officer in the final two episodes of series five, quickly becoming a hit with viewers.She led the interrogation of AC-12′s Superintendent Ted Hastings when he was under suspicion of being mysterious organised crime boss “H”. Carmichael will make her reappearance this weekend, with bosses hinting she could be about to take control after Hastings was forced into retirement, following Chief Constable Philip Osborne’s plan to cut numbers in Central Police’s anti-corruption units.Of rejoining the show, Anna said: “Pat’s back, I can’t remember what she’s doing there, nor would I be allowed to blab, but suffice to say she’s got some new clobber and she’s ready to bust some balls.”Line Of Duty continues on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.

Bridgerton Producer Shonda Rhimes Addresses Speculation About Regé-Jean Page Exit
Bridgerton producer Shonda Rhimes has spoken out over reports that Regé-Jean Page turned down an offer to appear in the show’s second series.The hit period drama was the first offering from the TV super-producer’s multi-million dollar deal with Netflix, and has proved hugely popular with subscribers, pulling in the most viewers ever for one of the platform’s original shows.However, the news that Regé-Jean would not be returning as the Duke of Hastings for Bridgerton’s second series has not gone down well with fans, which Shonda admits came as something of a surprise to her.She told Vanity Fair: “I was really shocked [by the reaction], because usually that happens when I’ve killed off somebody that’s been around for a while.“Like, we didn’t kill him, he’s still alive! [Regé-Jean] is a powerful, amazing actor and that meant we did our job – every season, our job is finding the right people and putting together this incredible, world-shifting romance.”Addressing speculation he turned down the chance to appear in series two, she continued: “We made a one-season deal with him at the beginning of season one. That was the plan: come and do one season as the duke. Anything else that was extra and wasn’t really the plan when we started, wasn’t the plan when we finished.“So there’s a lot of fantastically interesting talk that’s been going on, mainly cause I think people are having a hard time letting go.”However, Vanity Fair pointed out that Shonda later clarified Regé-Jean had been invited to return for cameos in series two.The Hollywood Reporter claimed last week that Regé-Jean had only ever signed a one-series deal with Bridgerton, which they said was part of the appeal of the role for him.According to the media outlet, he declined the opportunity to guest star in “three to five episodes” – at a rate of $50,000 an episode – to focus on his burgeoning film career and due to the small role his character would have.Prior to the news of Regé-Jean Page’s exit, it had already been announced that Jonathan Bailey’s character Anthony Bridgerton will take centre stage in the second series of the hit show, with Sex Education star Simone Ashley joining the cast as Kate, a new love interest for him.Earlier this week, it was confirmed that a third and fourth series of Bridgerton have now been commissioned.READ MORE:Bridgerton Fans Have Two Huge Reasons To Celebrate After Netflix's Latest AnnouncementBridgerton Introduces Four New Arrivals After Regé-Jean Page Confirms He Won't Be BackRegé-Jean Page Tries (And Fails) To Shake Off Heartthrob Reputation In Hilarious SNL Monologue
