It’s finally here. Killing Eve Series 2 starts in the UK on BBC 1 this Saturday.
And joining this series will be RWCMD’s very own Edward Bluemel, playing new boy Hugo.
The latest member to join Carolyn’s team, Hugo is described as manipulative, with no moral compass, ‘gleefully hateable’ …
Sounds like he’ll fit right in.
You’ll recognise Edward from his recent previous roles, Maeve’s wayward brother, Sean, in Netflix’s Sex Education, and in Sky One’s A Discovery of Witches, both made here in Wales.
Edward, who graduated in 2015, told us how much studying acting at the Royal Welsh College meant to him:
“Royal Welsh College has been hugely influential in my career,” he said.
“It taught me all the tools I needed to then be released out into the terrifying and ridiculous world of acting: from invaluable vocal skills, to helping me abandon my inhibitions and learn to really enjoy and relish my time on stage, screen or radio.”
We found some Hugo-type photos of Edward in his final year productions at the College.

Just be warned before you start searching twitter for all those Hugo memes. Killing Eve 2 has already screened in the US – you might find out more than you want to!
