Tom jumped at chance for role in Dublin Murders


ACTOR Tom Vaughan-Lawlor has said he jumped at the chance to star in upcoming RTÉ drama Dublin Murders, praising the “nuanced and complex storylines”.

Dublin Murders is an adaptation of Tana French’s first two books, In The Woods and The Likeness, and centres on two detectives, played by Killian Scott and Sarah Greene, as they investigate a series of murders that may be linked to an old case.

Love/Hate star Vaughan-Lawlor read the fifth book in the series and found it to be a “total page turner”.

Speaking to the BBC, who will also show the series, he  said: “So, when this came up, I jumped at the chance to be involved.

“Frank, who heads up the murder team, is in The Secret Place as a character as well as the novel Faithful Place, in which he is the lead character, so potentially he would go into further series,” the Dublin actor said.

Dublin Murders kicks off on RTÉ One with a double bill on Wednesday, October 16th at 9.35pm. Plus catch-up will be available on the RTÉ Player.
