No one has ever said “no” to Hugo in his entire life. This is a man-boy so used to getting what he wants that people automatically just give it to him. Hugo wafted through Eton and Oxford, and was absolutely delighted to get the tap on the shoulder (from an old friend of Daddy’s). He’s not remotely surprised or grateful that, in his twenties, he is in a major Counter-Terrorism department in MI6. He’s totally disrespectful to his elders and betters entitlement personified, but unfortunately, he is also completely irresistible. Kenny absolutely hates him.
Edward trained at the prestigious Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama before making his on-screen debut as the lead in the British indie Access All Areas in 2017.
In addition to Killing Eve, Edward has starred in ITV’s period drama Halcyon opposite Steven Mackintosh and Jamie Blackley, and can currently be seen in A Discovery of Witches (Sky1, coming soon to AMC/BBC AMERICA) playing the role of Marcus Whitmore, a fan favorite.
In 2019, Edward will be seen in Netflix’s new original series Sex Education alongside Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield, and in Channel 4’s Traitors, a brand new thriller set in the aftermath of the Second World War that centers around a seismic moment in history, when Britain was struggling to define itself in a new world order.
His theater credits include a lead role in Trevor Nunn’s Love in Idleness (West End) and Touch (Soho Theatre).
