Edward Holcroft to return for Kingsman 2

19 March 2016 10:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While many believed that his character was killed during the climax of last year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, according to Deadline, Edward Holcroft will be reprising his role as Charlie Hesketh in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman 2.

Hesketh was a handpicked recruit who goes through part of the training to become a Kingsman agent, but is eventually sent home after failing the train test. Later on in the film, Eggsy fights him at Richmond Valentine’s party, where he is electrocuted and presumably killed when all of the guests’ chip implants go off and their heads explode. 

Outside of Kingsman, the actor has a few notable film and TV credits to his name, such as Vampire Academy, London Spy and the Golden Globe-winning Wolf Hall. In 2016, he can be seen starring alongside Jim Broadbent, Michelle DockeryEmily Mortimer and more in The Sense of an Ending.

'Kingsman 2' Is Bringing Back This Key Character

18 March 2016 6:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after Kingsman: The Secret Service became a box office hit last February, there was already talk of a sequel, with writer-director Matthew Vaughn teasing that he was working on the script. The filmmaker also said he was contemplating on whether or not he should bring back Colin Firth's Harry Hart, who was killed towards the end of the first movie, although plans to bring him back for the sequel have since been discarded. Today, Deadline reports that a different seemingly-deceased character, Edward Holcroft's Charlie Hesketh, will be back for Kingsman 2.

While it isn't known if Edward Holcroft is returning as Charlie Hesketh or perhaps playing a completely different character, he joins a Kingsman 2 cast that includes Taron Egerton, reprising his role as Eggsy, Julianne Moore as the new villain and Halle Berry as the head of the CIA. 20th Century Fox has already issued a »

The sixth season and TV series finale of Downton Abbey drew more viewers than any of Downton Abbey's prior season finales. PBS and Wgbh announced that the finale, which aired Sunday, March 6, drew an average audience of 9.6 million viewers (Nielsen Fast National data, 6.1 household rating) across PBS stations nationwide.

Nearly ten million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Downton Abbey's residents, including: Lord Robert and Lady Cora Crawley (Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern) and their daughters Mary (Michelle Dockery) and Edith (Laura Carmichael). Just as beloved (or more so) are the Downton staff, including: Mr. Carson (Jim Carter), Mrs. Patmore (Lesley Nichol), Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan), and Thomas Barrow (Rob James-Collier). Last but not least is this reporter's scarecrow, that dazzling doyen of the Dower House, Lady Violet Crawley »

Downton Abbey: Julian Fellowes Talks Movie Sequel and Series Finale

[caption id="attachment_45292" align="aligncenter" width="589"] Courtesy of (C) Nick Briggs/Carnival Film & Television Limited 2015 for Masterpiece[/caption]

The Downton Abbey TV series finale aired on PBS last night. As he did when Downton ended on ITV, on Christmas Night, 2015, creator, Ep, and writer Julian Fellowes is doing the media rounds, discussing the end of the six season series, and the possibility of a movie or other sequel. If you're in the States and missed the finale, last night, catch up on PBS.org.

While the Downton Abbey finale gave closure for most of the characters, including Edith (Laura Carmichael), Mary (Michelle Dockery), Thomas Barrow (Rob James-Collier), it had an open-ended feel, that should make revisiting the characters in a sequel feel natural.

Review: ‘Downton Abbey’ Finale Closes PBS Hit’s Sentimental Journey (Spoilers)

6 March 2016 7:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Watching the final few episodes of “Downton Abbey,” including the series finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t yet), brought to mind the accusation leveled at Rick, Humphrey Bogart’s character in Casablanca,” by Claude Rains’ Captain Renault: “As I suspected, you’re a rank sentimentalist.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that in this case, as series creator Julian Fellowes clearly exhibited an affection for his cast, and a desire to see them enjoy the equivalent of an uplifting ride into the sunset on this towering PBS drama.

Granted, the way of life represented in the series has been living on borrowed time for a while. And just as “Downton” began with the sinking of the Titanic and encompassed the tumult of World War I, the specter of World War II looms over the future of all these characters, or at least those likely to be around another 15 years or more. »

Toodles, Lady Mary! Downton Abbey Concludes with Lots of Tea and Sympathy

6 March 2016 7:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After six seasons, PBS Masterpiece's beloved British series about aristocrats and servants has rolled to a gentle, satisfying close. In the final episode, Robert, Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville), finally gave up complaining that this or that setback at Downton represented the twilight of the gentry. Everyone, upstairs and down, seemed to agree instead to pretend they were basking in an eternal, sentimental gloaming. Even long-suffering Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) walked down the aisle, although her escort into the future will be a twit. Life wound up "happy enough," said Lady Violet (Dame Maggie Smith), "which is the English version of a happy ending. »

The PBS drama ended its six-season run on a high note, giving us pretty much everything we could have possibly hoped for: Edith and Bertie are married, Mary and Henry are expecting a “young Talbot,” Tom and Laura are on the cusp of romance, Anna and Bates are the proud parents of a healthy baby boy, and Thomas has been given new purpose as Downton’s butler. »

There’s no use in asking if you’re ready to say goodbye to the residents of Downton Abbey this Sunday (PBS, 9/8c). Because you’re not. None of us are.

That said, the lords, ladies and downstairs dwellers have a whole mess of last-minute surprises up their collective sleeve for the series finale, so TVLine thought we’d cushion the pain of farewell by dropping a few hints. (Note: Stop reading now if you’d rather remain in the dark.)
