Daniel Adegboyega: The Interceptor

Date - 10 June, 2015, All News Television

Daniel plays Charlie this week in new BBC Drama, The Interceptor.

The Interceptor is a new, 8 part high-octane crime show from the BBC. Our main character, MAC, a Customs and Excise operative, is frustrated by the small “collars” that are the day to day business of his job. He is headhunted by a dedicated surveillance team known as the UNIT, recruited from various law enforcement agencies to attempt to bring to justice the higher levels of those criminals responsible for organised crime. They keep their quarries under ultra-tight surveillance, they take us into the real world inhabited by the criminals of today.

The world of The Interceptor thrives on the deals and the dangers of the criminal world but also the associated criminal enterprises linked to major crime – the money-laundering, the kidnapping, the violent turf wars as well as the links to organised crime and its twin brother, big business.


Daniel trained at CSSD and has worked prolifically in theatre for The Lyric Hammersmith, Headlong, Birmingham Rep, ETT, Royal Lyceum, The Gate Theatre, NT Studio and The Salisbury Playhouse.

Recent television credits include series regular Bertram in Save Me (Sky Atlantic), Father Brown, Man Down, The Interceptor, Atlantis, and Episodes. Film credits include Saebert in Tranformers: The Last Knight (Paramount Studios), Bryson in the feature film The Gunman , The Last Knights alongside Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman and Skyfall directed by Sam Mendes.

Daniel runs his own Personal Fitness Company, and is highly proficient in Stage Combat, Boxing, Martial Arts and Weapons Training, including Firearms.
