GREG WISE AND BILLY CAMPBELL JOIN THE SECOND SEASON OF SWEDISH DRAMA MODUS

15 June 2017

As announced earlier this year, world renowned actress Kim Cattrall stars as the US President in the second season of C More and TV4’s thriller series Modus – and now, two other international stars join the cast, Greg Wise and Billy Campbell. British actor Greg Wise boasts successes such as the Jane Austen classic Sense and Sensibility and the recent Netflix series The Crown. Billy Campbell has starred in several hit series including The Killing and the acclaimed mini-series Cardinal. Modus’ second season will be released on C More this fall, after the service’s recent successes with original series Farang and Missing.

Greg Wise scored his break-through as John Willoughby in Sense and Sensibility in 1995 and has since starred in several series and movies, including Netflix hit series The Crown. In Modus, he plays Warren, main character Inger Johanne Vik’s (Melinda Kinnaman) former FBI mentor.

“Warren and Inger Johanne have a complicated past. Taking on this role was an exciting challenge, as Warren has a very dark side to him: he is the ultimate narcissist, Machiavellian and takes great delight in pushing all the boundaries. I’m sure the viewers will have no idea what to think of him. That’s the fun in playing the character” says Greg Wise.

Billy Campbell recently starred in the popular Canadian series Cardinal. Before that, he starred in series such as The Killing, Once and Again and The 4400. In Modus, he takes on the role of Dale Tyler, President Helen Tyler’s (Cattrall) husband.

“I play Dale Tyler, First Gentleman of the United States. Dale is the President’s husband and confidant, but their relationship has changed over the time they’ve spent with each other. What binds them together now is their daughter, and a dark secret they’ve shared for years” says Billy Campbell.

“It feels great that we with Modus have been able to attract an international cast in the calibre of Greg Wise, Billy Campbell and, of course, Kim Cattrall; it strengthens both the drama and the international power of Modus. We have a very exciting second season that we cannot wait to share with the audience later this year, says Johanna Bergenstråhle, Acting Head of Drama on C More and TV4.

“After the success of the first season of Modus, we couldn’t wait to go into production with season two. The new series features a hugely international storyline, we have our talented returning cast and the addition of the outstanding Greg Wise, Billy Campbell and Kim Cattrall – this season is shaping up to be an exciting one” Says Sandra Harms, Producer at Miso Film.

Modus is produced by Sandra Harms at Miso Film and written by Mai Brostrøm and Peter Thorsboe. The series is directed by Lisa Siwe and Håkan Lindhé. Modus premieres on C More later this fall. FremantleMedia International will distribute Modus internationally.
