New York – July 30, 2013 – The cast of Ripper Street expands when Matthew MacFadyen (Inspector Edmund Reid), Jerome Flynn (Sergeant Bennett Drake) and Adam Rothenberg (Captain Homer Jackson) are joined by new faces in the eagerly anticipated second season, currently filming in Dublin. David Costabile (Breaking Bad, The Wire), Damien Molony (Being Human), Joseph Mawle (Game of Thrones, Birdsong) and Leanne Best enter London’s East End in the year 1890.
Matthew MacFadyen has recently said: “It’s fantastic to be reunited with much of the wonderful cast and crew from last year. Also to be reunited with my bowler hat – I missed it. The show’s creator Richard Warlow has given us wonderful, strange and unsettling episodes, teeming with the fierce and fragile life of Victorian Whitechapel.”
As the century enters its final decade, the streets teeter on the brink of moral collapse, and nowhere is the declining British Empire’s problems felt more keenly than in its dark heart: the East End of London. As Jackson attempts to move forward with his life, his brother, Daniel Judge (David Costabile), enters the picture. Joining Reid and Drake in H Division is new Detective Constable Albert Flight (Damien Molony). While over in K Division, corrupt rival, Inspector Jedidiah Shine (Joseph Mawle) presents numerous obstacles. Viewers will also meet, Jane Cobden (Leanne Best) – the first woman elected to the London County Council.
Also reprising their roles in season two are Myanna Buring and Charlene McKenna as Long Susan and Rose – bringing feminine fight and glamour to the corrupt and crime ridden streets of Victorian London.
Guest characters this season also include Paul Kaye (2,000 Acres of Sky, Game of Thrones), Neve McIntosh (Doctor Who), Gina Bellman (Coupling) and James Wilby (Maurice, Clapham Junction).
