Shaun Evans is a familiar face on our TV screens thanks to his many roles in popular series and films.
The actor, who is perhaps best-known for his long-running stint on ITV murder mystery drama, Endeavour, has been acting since the early 2000s and shows no sign of slowing down as he's due to appear alongside Suranne Jones and Martin Compston in a brand new BBC drama, Vigil.
To celebrate his success in the run-up to a brand new season of Endeavour and the arrival of Vigil, we've taken a look back at some of the actor's notable roles on TV...

Ashes to Ashes

Remember legal drama, Silk? The three-series show starred Maxine Peake as the lead, Martha Costello, and followed her high-profile job as a QC. Shaun appeared in series two as Daniel Lomas, a student shadowing Martha – and Rupert Penry-Jones also starred.
The Last Weekend
This three-part series is a psychological thriller adapted from the Blake Morrison novel of the same name. Shaun reunited with his Silk co-star Rupert Penry-Jones as two friends who are reunited during a weekend away, but soon their relationship is put to the test and irreversible consequences occur as a result.

The Scandalous Lady W
The Scandalous Lady W was a racy TV movie that aired on the BBC back in 2015 starring Natalie Dormer as lead character Seymour Worsley and Shaun Evans as her powerful husband, Sir Richard Worsley.
The 18th century drama tells the story of Lady Seymour, who tries to escape her troubled marriage and elope with another man, but not before trouble ensues. Line of Duty's Craig Parkinson also stars.

Endeavour first appeared on screens back in 2012 and has been an ITV staple ever since. Alongside Roger Allam, Shaun plays detective Endeavour Morse and the show acts as a prequel to the beloved Inspector Morse story. Fortunately, series eight is on the way, so fans can look forward to more Endeavour very soon.
