Characters & Actors
Danny Blue (Marc Warren) The Inside Man
Danny used to be a short-con artist who excelled at card tricks and pick-pocketing. He always dreamt of leading his own crew, calling the shots, making the decisions. Often impulsive, occasionally over-eager, Danny had to learn to be patient before he could become skilled in the ways of the long con. A natural charmer, with the gift of the gab, he can talk himself out of most situations and likes to think he's a ladies man! His method of grifting isn't always the most prepared - and he's yet to master the art of the Plan B - but his imagination and willpower often bring flashes of genius that save the day.
Billy Bond (Ashley Walters)
The latest arrival to the group, Billy introduces himself as "a work of art, a force of nature" who can "separate a mark from his money quicker than any man alive"'. A criminal delinquent in his youth, Billy spent most of his formative years in and out of foster homes. He feels a sense of injustice about the world and it's time for him to fight back. Billy's a big fan of Danny Blue and seeks him out to learn the tricks of the trade. He can see the beauty that exists in a perfectly executed con and has studied the art of the great con-men. He's got the spirit and energy to be a great grifter - now he wants the wisdom that comes with experience.
Stacie Monroe (Jaime Murray)
Albert Stroller (Robert Vaughn)
Ash Morgan (Robert Glenister)
Mickey Stone (Adrian Lester)
"He's in a class all his own. He's had every fraud office in the country jumping through hoops for twenty years but never been convicted."
Mickey's the former leader of the team, and master of the long con.
Very ambitious, he's gone off to Australia to help pull off a major con, leaving his protégé Danny to stake his claim to lead the gang.
Held in high esteem. Described by the police as 'in a class of his own'. He's a prize catch for every fraud squad in the country!
Fiercely intelligent and a perfectionist.
But don't think he's not tough. Two years in prison for GBH on his wife's new boyfriend is unfortunately etched on his CV.
He has everything he could possibly want - apart from the woman he loves.
The rumour is that he and Stacie were once involved.
He only targets the greedy, morally corrupt and those who thoroughly deserve it.
