4. Warren Brown is a former pro fighter
Warren Brown has put together quite a résumé as an actor, starring on shows like Luther with Idris Elba, X Company, By Any Means, and Liar, as well as in films like The Dark Knight Rises and Byzantium. But Brown’s role as ex-United Kingdom Special Forces Sergeant Thomas “Mac” McAllister suits him well. In one episode this season, the team has to deal with some MMA fighting, so it was a perfect fit—Brown is a former pro Muay Thai boxer.
“For 10 years, that was my life,” Brown previously told the Liverpool Echo. “It was my passion, I loved it. I trained twice a day, travelled all around the world and saw some great places.”
MacPherson adds: “Warren is a two-time world champion Muay Thai fighter. He’s one of the strongest mental and physical guys I’ve ever met, so we trained a lot together.”Back to top
