David MorrisseyThis is shaping up to be a banner year for David Morrissey. Of course he is no stranger to acting. The forty-seven-year-old from Liverpool, England has paid his dues. Morrissey is an accomplished stage actor and has done Shakespeare great justice in London and on Sky1. He’s starred in Doctor Who, and the BBC series Holding On, among tons of other works. He won Best Male Actor at The Royal Television Society Programme Awards for his work in, ‘The Deal,’ and Best Actor at the Liverpool Daily Post Arts Awards for Macbeth. What I’m trying to say is, get to know this fine actor in ‘Thorne,’ before the next season of The Walking Dead starts.


David Morrissey has been making headlines over the last two months because he landed the iconic role of The Governor in Season Three of The Walking Dead. But before the third season of that wonderful show airs on AMC, David Morrissey will star in another show set to air on Encore. A tense crime thriller miniseries called, ‘Thorne,’ which debuts Tuesday, June 12, at 9 p.m. ET. Part Two airs the following night, Wed., June 13 at 9 p.m. ET.

Citing The Huffington Post, The two-part miniseries is adapted from Mark Billingham’s bestselling novel, “Sleepyhead,” and boasts an array of familiar TV faces, including “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sandra Oh (with a plummy British accent, no less), Natascha McElhone of “Californication” and “The Wire” alum Aidan Gillen (most recently seen as the conniving Littlefinger on “Game of Thrones”.)


According to Encore, Part One (titled “Sleepyhead”) follows Thorne as he finds himself dragged back into the nightmares of his past while looking for a mysterious serial killer after a series of unusual attacks on young women. His first three victims are found dead. The fourth victim, Alison Willetts, survived an excruciating attack. Thorne knows that there are more deaths to come, as the killer enjoys toying with Thorne just as much as he gets a thrill out of pursuing his sick fantasy.
