I TALK TO Reece Shearsmith

I recently caught up with Reece Shearsmith to talk about playing the role of DS Sean Stone in new ITV drama Chasing Shadows.

2014 has been a brilliant year for Reece Shearsmith. First there was Inside No. 9 which he created with Steve Pemberton, and then there was The Widower with Sheridan Smith (Mrs Biggs) which really showed him off as a great dramatic actor.His year is about to get even better with Chasing Shadows, a thrilling four-part drama set in in a missing persons field unit that hunts serial killers who prey on the vulnerable.

I can only go by the first episode which I have watched, but it certainly left me wanting more. There's always an element of getting to know the characters in a first episode, but once we do, and by the end of episode one the drama really gets going and I'm itching to watch episode.

Let's start by talking about your character Sean. What's he like?
