Who does Julian Looman play in The Mallorca Files?

In The Mallorca Files, Julian takes on the role of DC Max Winter, the crime-solving partner of Elen Rhys' character, Miranda Blake. His role on the show is his first major English-speaking role. Asked what had attracted him to the show, he told the BBC: "When I read the script, what I really liked about it was the Moonlighting aspect.

"These are not only crime stories, but they are also about an ongoing relationship. That's something the audience will really warm to. You see Max and Miranda's relationship develop, and you don't know where it's going."

"We think about the same things, and we are both sometimes sad that we not at home more! But it's great to have this joint experience and to enjoy it together."

He added: "We had 'chemistry readings' at the auditions in London. I tried out with a couple of different Mirandas, but it was immediately obvious that I had the best chemistry with Elen. As soon as we read the script together, it all fell into place."
