Tripp – Shaun Dooley

Shaun Dooley, who plays Tripp in The Stranger, has one of those faces you will forever recognise but not know where from. He does TV interviews all the time and it would probably be easier to list things he hasn’t been in, but here we are.

Shaun played Adam in Silent Witness, Jack in Law and Order, Eddie in Married Single Other, Fisher in The Woman in Black, Pete in Benidorm, Greg in Misfits, Kincaid in Wolfblood, Ricky in Broadchurch, Steve in DCI Banks and he was in SAS: Who Dares Wins. I think that’s enough.
