Line of Duty’s Kelly Macdonald reveals brutal plot to trick mates about identity of H in series 6

LINE of Duty’s Kelly Macdonald has revealed a brutal plot to trick mates about the identity of H in series six.

The 45-year-old actress joins the hit BBC crime drama for the new series as DCI Joanne Davidson.

Kelly joins the show at a point where fans are desperate to know who the mysterious and sinister 'H' is, and as a newcomer, the finger has immediately been pointed at her character.

However, Kelly told The Sun Online and other media ahead of the series six launch that she had come up with a sneaky way of throwing any of her pals who are fans of the show off the scent.

She said: "People are so excited from the get go and knew more about it because I had just started watching it. 

"My friends were getting ridiculously excited and screaming in my face 'am I H, am I H' and I didn't know what it meant. 


"Then I thought, because I wear a K around my neck, I was thinking I should get one that's got a H on it just to mess with them.

Kelly continued: "The thing is everybody asks, they're desperate to know. But then before you can even think how to respond they immediately say 'I don't want to know, I don't want to know!'

"They're very passionate about wanting to and not wanting to so you just have to let them get on with it."

Kelly previously revealed she had to stop watching Line of Duty after series four ahead of her own debut on the drama.

The star admitted that she started to second guess her acting abilities after watching such great performances from the likes of actresses Keeley Hawes (DI Lindsay Denton) and Thandie Newton (DCI Roz Huntley).

"It started getting close to the beginning of filming and I really started panicking.

"And Thandie was being so good," she recently told the Guardian. "I’d never done as much dialogue on any job.

"The jobs I’ve done have been emotional dialogue and this was a different thing – it’s information.

"My first thought was that this would be really challenging, and that’s probably a good thing, but I did have to think about it."

Line of Duty series six begins on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
