-What did you know about the Pembrokeshire murders before working on the series?
– I didn’t know the story. I was in Montreal on a shoot as soon as I started reading (the script), I went straight to Google to check because I couldn’t believe it was a true story. This is a powerful story. It’s a success story, because it shows you how people come together. When there is truth, as deep as it is, when people have passion and want to find the truth, they will.

– What did you like the most about Nick Stevens’ screenplay?
-Nick’s script is detailed and complex, but they let each character’s emotion flow, which is a daunting task when it comes to technical police dialogue. I loved working with Nick because his collaborative and open approach was an enjoyable process for me as an actor.

– Why do you think this story attracts the public?
When a true story comes to life, it gives a sense of authenticity. Simultaneously, we get a chance to show off the skill, professionalism and thorough process that the team goes through, painstakingly sifting through the evidence to find the smallest of hopes. It is the story of a man’s hunch and a team’s belief in him, the belief that they will find the killer. A true story of success against darkness and evil.

Being from Wales, was it important to record there with a Welsh cast and crew?
-Actually, this is the first time I’ve worked on a project in Wales, so for me it was very touching and also because it’s a Welsh story. I was able to visit some incredibly beautiful parts of Wales, which was special. It was a pleasure to visit the recording set and hear all these beautiful Welsh accents every day. I have missed her a lot. The cast is quite an eclectic bunch. I loved every moment of working with them all, and the team was fantastic.
