Those of you who are fans of Shetland will remember Douglas Henshall.
Did you know that he will be in a thriller taking place on Netflix next month?
We will get to see the handsome Jimmy Perez/Douglas Henshall on the screen again. Which means I’ll have to sign back up for Netflix.
It was said that Douglas Henshall left fans of DI Jimmy Perez heartbroken when he stepped down from his role in Shetland.
This is what the actor said about leaving Shetland in season 7:
“I decided to leave a few years ago because I felt that Perez’s story was coming to a natural end. It was time to find a resolution to Perez’s private life.”
“I never wanted to ruin the things that were unique to him and our series so it felt like the right time to wrap up his story in a way that would be satisfactory to everybody.
“I am aware we’re not changing the world in any way, shape or form but as far as crime shows go, Shetland does really well in that genre. We tell stories that are very good, the characters are great and I wanted to go out on a high.”
New Role For Douglas Henshall:
Douglas is set to play the role of Daniel Long in the upcoming female-led action-adventure first called Palomino. However we don’t know the significance of his character yet.
The new drama changed its name to “Who Is Erin Carter?” It is from the producers of The Crown, Left Bank Pictures. Eight episodes have been commissioned for the first season of the series.
The series centers around a British teacher in Spain called Erin Collantes, who finds herself caught up in a supermarket robbery.
When one of the robbers claims to recognize her, her life threatens to unravel.
Erin tries to clear her name and protect her family. But no one seems to know if she is really who she claims to be.
“Who is Erin Carter?” will release in full globally on Netflix on August 24th, 2023.
Douglas Henshall’s Famous Wife:
Douglas also has a famous wife. He is married to playwright and screenwriter Tena Štivičić, who hails from Zagreb in Croatia. She has written plays in both her native language and in English.
It isn’t clear how they met, but the couple decided to tie the knot in a spur-of-the-moment ceremony in Las Vegas in 2010. They welcomed their only child, daughter Anja Grace at the end of 2016.
In 2020, Tena wrote a comedic piece called Wednesday inspired by their relationship, specifically their experience of lockdown.
