Kevin Ryan describes his preparation for the role as deeply immersive, leveraging his connections within the police force and insights from real-life detectives, notably Pat Marry. “There is a certain mindset for these types of detectives… I found Pat extremely calculated, heightened attention to detail and open-minded about his approach, and that is something that I brought into the role of Charlie,” Ryan explains, highlighting his meticulous preparation and the invaluable guidance he received.

The series, praised for its perfect meld of crime-solving drama and humor, owes much of its charm to the astute writing of David Logan and Jo Spain.

Ryan’s commitment to authenticity, powered by his background in Stanislavski’s method acting, ensures a portrayal that is both genuine and evocative. “Acting is all about specificity… The character is flawed yet dedicated and loving in his own ways, which is how he was written and what I tried to serve up in my portrayal in his creation,” he asserts, underscoring his dedication to bringing a realistic and compelling character to life through detailed character work and a profound understanding of human emotions.
