The Cast of "The Nightmanager"
We were glued to our sofas each week like clockwork to watch the fabulous drama that was The Night Manager, which was, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the best TV series of the last decade. The TV adaptation of the spy novel penned by John le Carré, who is lauded by literary critics everywhere for his remarkable gift for creating a certain brand of gritty paranoia, was adapted to the present day by David Farr.
Luxury hotel night manager "Jonathan Pine" (played by the talented and, sorry it has to be said, downright gorgeous Tom Hiddleston) is recruited by government agent "Angela Burr" (Olivia Colman) as a spy. He is tasked with the difficult and dangerous mission to infiltrate the inner circle of ruthless arms dealer "Richard Onslow Roper" (Hugh Laurie). In doing so, he becomes inextricably involved in the lives of "Roper's" associates and, far more perilously, with his beautiful girlfriend "Jed" (Elizabeth Debicki).
