Marc Warren plays Danny Blue

The Hustle team are back

Marc Warren plays Danny Blue

Marc's extensive television career includes roles in the award-winning State Of Play, Clocking Off, Men Only, Band Of Brothers and Oliver Twist.

He won a Royal Television Society Award for Best Actor (State Of Play) in 2000.

He has also recently completed filming on the big screen on The Yank with Elijah Wood, Colour Me Kubrick with John Malkovich and Land Of The Blind with Donald Sutherland and Ralph Fiennes.

You are quite stylish normally and in the show. Did you like having the chance to dress up as a chav in episode two?

A Chav? Isn't that what people call Wayne Rooney's girlfriend?!

I like being stylish Danny rather than chav Danny but it's always nice to have a change once in a while!

Which is your favourite episode?

Probably episode three with Lee Ingleby. Lee's character, Trevor, reminds Danny a bit of himself - short con artist who is looking for his big break.

It's got a brilliant twist in the end.

How did the guest stars fit in with the Hustle crew this series?

It was a great experience to work with them but I think they, like me, thought the experience of working with Robert Vaughn was the best.

I learnt so much from him. I don't think you learn that much from your contemporaries but people of a different generation, you learn so much from.

Robert Vaughn just being himself is always an inspiration; he has so much experience and presence.

I tend to call him Sir and I treat him with absolute respect because he deserves it.

Stacie becomes a superhero in a fantasy sequence. If you were a superhero what superpower what would you have?

I'd have to choose two superpowers. I'd be able to live forever; I would be able to indulge in all the vices I wanted to without feeling bad or worrying about doing myself any harm.

I'd also like to not worry about things - I'd like to be funny, enlightened, sexy, good at my job without worrying about it or what I looked like on-screen. Not much to ask is it?
