Jamie Dornan & Matthew Rhys to Star in BBC Mini-Series

Jamie Dornan has booked his next role and he’s heading back to television!

The 36-year-old actor, who previously appeared on The Fall, will star alongside Matthew Rhys in the three-part drama series Death and Nightingales.

The new series is from The Fall creator Allan Cubitt. “Set over a desperately tense 24-hour period, the story sees Beth Winters’ (Ann Skelly) celebrate her 25th birthday, the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Dornan) and escape from her limited life and difficult and complex relationship with her Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Rhys),” according to THR.

“I’m thrilled to be reunited with Allan and his brilliant scripts to play such an intriguing character like Liam Ward and to return to Northern Ireland and BBC Two,” Jamie said in a statement.
