He’s the star of The Office who gained global attention for his roles in Sherlock and The Hobbit, but now Martin Freeman has undertaken one of his “grittiest roles to date.”
Playing Detective Steve Fulcher in A Confession, the real-life crime drama follows DS Fulcher as he deliberately breaches police protocol to catch a killer.
“He’s been through it a bit Steve, so I hope he’s vaguely happy with what we’ve done. The primary tragedy in this is the death of two young children and the devastating effect that had on their families, which obviously most of us can’t imagine.
