BODYGUARD star Richard Madden has revealed he was told to leave Netflix headquarters after trying to take “employee-only water”.
Despite the online streaming service winning the rights to the hit BBC show, the 32-year-old actor explained about the bizarre reason he was refused a bottle by a staff member.
In an interview with American talk show host Sam Rubin on KTLA Morning News, Madden explained: “I walked in and was told I was in the wrong building.
“But there was a fridge of Netflix-branded water, which I went to grab a bottle of and he said you have to go around the corner for your guys’ show.
“I said ‘cool, I’ll just grab a bottle of water.’
“But I was told no, it’s for Netflix employees only.
“I said, ‘well I am a Netflix employee, I’m on a show’.
“He said ‘sir, you have to put that water back now’.
“I was like, ‘Seriously? Surely I can have a bottle of water?’.
“But again he just said ‘no, you have to put that water back now. You have to leave now’.
“They held the door open for me and I left the building.”
BBC1’s Bodyguard — one of the biggest dramas in the UK in a decade — was made available around the world, including in Australia, on Netflix last week.
In Britain, a record 17 million people watched the final episode of Bodyguard in September but a second series has yet to be confirmed by the BBC.
Madden said he is meeting with the show’s creator, Jed Mercurio, in the coming weeks to discuss ideas — adding that it may end up like anthology series American Horror Story.
Speaking to Deadline, Madden, said: “I’m going to meet Jed in a couple of weeks, to have a chat and see what’s in his brilliant brain.
“So, I’m like, what can happen next? You know, with David.
“Because he had a hell of a couple months there. Where do you go with this guy?”
The former Game Of Thrones’ star continued: “I also thought, maybe it’s going to be like American Horror Story where, in the second series, it’s a whole different incarnation of it, and I’m a royal and Keeley [Hawes, his co-star] is on my protection team.
“And you get all the rest of the actors back, and we all do different things. But who knows what’s in Jed’s mind. I’m very keen to hear.”
