Stephen Graham on This Is England '90: 'Combo is very much a reformed figure'

17 September 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Stephen Graham is set to make his anticipated comeback as the incarcerated Combo in Shane Meadows's This Is England '90.

The British actor - who has just teamed up with co-star Thomas Turgoose to raise money for Stand up to Cancer - revealed to Digital Spy that Combo will return as a "reformed figure".

The Channel 4 series is writer and director Meadows's final follow-up to 2010's This Is England '86 and 2011's This Is England '88 - all of which were off-shoots from the 2006 movie This Is England.

The first episode surprised fans with its unexpectedly sunny and laugh-out-loud start for the gang - which includes Gadget (Andrew Ellis), Shaun (Thomas Turgoose), Milky (Andrew Shim), Lol (Vicky McClure) and Woody (Joe Gilgun).

But Graham gave us a resounding "no" when we asked if it was going to stay that way.

"It's what Shane [Meadows] does," the Boardwalk Empire star explained. »
