Peaky Blinders series 6 casts very familiar face from Line of Duty – despite axing him two years ago

PEAKY Blinders has cast a very familiar face from Line of Duty in series six – despite axing him two years ago.

The hit BBC drama is currently filming its final series, with Cillian Murphy once again returning as Tommy Shelby.

While a host of other familiar faces from the series are also returning, including Sam Claflin and Paul Anderson, some new faces have joined too.

One person in particular will grab viewers' attention, especially if they are a fan of hit BBC crime drama, Line of Duty.

Actor Stephen Graham has been pictured on set wearing period costume consisting of a striped shirt and waistcoat.

Stephen appeared in series five of Line of Duty as undercover cop John Corbett, before meeting a grisly end at the hands of the Organised Crime Group.

Fans of Stephen will be thrilled to see him finally becoming part of the show, after he was previously announced to play a role in 2019.

His role was subsequently put on hold 'indefinitely' due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Stephen told the Pound for Pound podcast last April: "I was supposed to be starting Peaky Blinders but that has been put on hold indefinitely.

"My agent spent a lot of time putting that together."

Details regarding Stephen's character are being kept under wraps for now, however, there has been speculation he could reprise his role as Al Capone from Boardwalk Empire, after he was discussed a number of times in series five.

Filming on series six of Peaky Blinders was delayed by a whole year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this month, the cast were left devastated by the death of Helen McCrory, who played Polly Gray on the show.
