Ben Fox will feature in The Escape Artist, a 3 part thriller for BBC1 written by David Wolstencroft and directed by Brian Welsh.

The programme follows a barrister (played by David Tennant) who specialises in getting people out of tight corners – The Escape Artist. He takes on a horrific murder case and controversially gets the man off on a technicality – only to find that his involvement with this monstrous client spirals terrifyingly out of control and threatens to destroy his entire life and family.

Ben will act alongside Toby Kebbell, Sophie Okonedo and Ashley Jensen.


Ben's notable screen credits include series regular Simon Merrifield in The Living & The Dead, Will Shakespeare in Will for TNT, Neath in Summer of Rockets , Vanity Fair for ITV and Amazon, Les Miserables for BBC, The Crown for Netflix and Game of Thrones for HBO.

Ben originated the role of Joey 'The Lips' Fagan in the world premiere of The Commitments directed by Jamie Lloyd at the Palace Theatre, West End. He also played the role of Andre opposite Robert Lindsay in The West End's Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
