Ripper Street S4: Interview with Matthew Macfadyen (Sydney Morning Herald)
Series 4 of Ripper Street will begin airing this Thursday in Australia. Matthew Macfadyen made several comments about his role in Ripper Street. Here is a small excerpt:
As for his character, Macfadyen says he is happy to follow the scripts, which often arrive the night before filming: "I have great faith in the writing of [creator] Richard Warlow. It's refreshing and exciting because you don't know where you are going. The more twists and turns on Edmund's journey the better for me.
"I do like Edmund, his failings as well as his strong points. He is quite a proud and vain man who can be spectacularly thoughtless about people close to him. But he is also, at heart, a good man who cares very deeply about people who can't help themselves or who are hard done by. After all, people are capable of revolting things but that doesn't necessarily mean they are evil. It might simply be circumstances."
