Poulter appears as Dean Hayward in the drama directed by Dexter Fletcher. With his father in prison and his mother missing, Dean cares for his brother until his father returns home and threatens to fall back into crime. Co-starring Charlie Creed-Miles, Liz White, and Sammy Williams.
Dean is a character who I describe as wise beyond his years. He’s been forced into the role of an adult. .. It’s interesting to me when Bill comes back into his life because it sort of turns everything upside down again. Dean is forced to confront the pain and emotions he tried to ignore because his dad is a stimulus for that. And Bill and Dean are both forced to confront their past.
