Police tell me I could be a real copper, says Line of Duty's Daniel Mays | The Sun

DANIEL MAYS’ time as the troubled Sergeant Danny Waldron on Line Of Duty made for gripping telly.

And while his new stint playing another policeman in Sky comedy drama Code 404 is a little lighter, Daniel confessed coppers still rate him and think he could be on patrol for real.

Daniel, who plays DI John Major, an officer revived from the dead by futuristic technology, told Radio Times: “I get stopped all the time.

“I often get men sidling up to me at airports or in waiting rooms and telling me, ‘I’m an undercover policeman – I loved you in that show’.”

Daniel was born on March 31, 1978, in Epping, Essex, and is an English actor.
