Ripper Street: Possible Major Spoilers about Det Reid

According to the Daily Mail

Matthew Macfadyen is set to kill off his Ripper Street character – so he can become a house-husband. 

With his wife Keeley Hawes filming a three-part TV adaptation of J. K. Rowling’s novel The Casual Vacancy, Matthew, 39, wants his role as Detective Inspector Edmund Reid in Ripper Street to end.


Friends say he will spend more time with the couple’s children – Maggie, ten, Ralph, eight, and Keeley’s 14-year-old son Myles.

A pal says: ‘Matthew asked producers for his character to be killed off. He’s leaving on amicable terms.

'He’s been away filming a lot and he and Keeley take their acting roles in turn so the other can look after the kids.’
