Popular BBC drama Luther returned this week with series five, starring Idris Elba as troubled officer John Luther.
During the third episode of the fifth series, actor Anthony Howell made his debut on the show as an unnamed hitman hired by George Cornelius to kill Luther and accomplice Alice Morgan.
Viewers were left in tears after Howell’s character murdered long-standing character Benny in the tense scenes.
However, it was the familiarity of actor Anthony which left viewers wondering where they recognised the star from.

Anthony trained in North London and made his TV debut in Wives and Daughters as Roger Hamley.

Anthony has also starred in TV series Mr Selfridge, Dracula, Crossing Lines and You, Me and the Apocalypse.
The actor has also dabbled in theatre, starring as Cassius in William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in 2014 at The Globe and as Ralph in Henry James’ Portrait Of A Lady.
