I TALK TO Edoardo Ballerini

Edoardo Ballerini makes an appearance in the latest episode of Ripper Street as Frank Goodnight and I caught up with him to find out a little bit more about the series and his character.

Tell us a bit about your background...

I've been doing a lot of television of late, in the States Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos and before that 24. I got started (laughs) a long time ago. It's a funny story actually, I was in Italy and I was studying Latin, of all things, and I got really bored one day so I just chucked it all out of the window and joined a Theatre company. 

So yeah, it was very spur of the moment and then I went back to New York, where I'm from, and started studying at The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, and then I just started working. </
