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."

Ripper Street S4: Interview with Matthew Macfadyen (The Iris Au Review)

He also talks abit about the future:

The next thing you’ve got coming up is “Churchill’s Secret” …

It’s a one off film about Churchill and his wife, I haven’t got a big part in it and I haven’t seen it but it’s coming out quite soon.
I’m still working on Ripper Street Season 5 we’ve got another couple of months left and then we’re done. After April 16th it’s a void there’s nothing else, I’m adrift.

Is the potential lack of employment a good thing or a bad thing, would you like to have a bit of time off? What would you normally be doing if you’re having downtime?

It’s normal, I would like to have a bit of time off, I’m sure I’ll start panicking after a few weeks but that’s what happens. I’m used to it now after 20 years. Sometimes you have a run of jobs and it’s lovely but I’m looking forward to a bit of time at home. I’ll just be with my family, my wife and 3 kids and it’s just lovely being at home, doing the school run, normal stuff, reading and catching up on stuff and seeing friends.

Ripper Street: Fifth series likely to be last

Ripper Street was showcased at the BBC Worldwide Showcase in Liverpool this week and Matthew Macfadyen, MyAnna Buring and writer Richard Burlow were in attendance.

When asked how they felt about Amazon ordering not just a third season of the show, but also a fourth and fifth simultaneously, they responded, “Very happy.” However, Warlow stated that the fifth season will probably be the right time to bid farewell to Ripper Street.
