Cast and Characters of My Policeman
The following cast members for My Policeman have been confirmed.
- As an elderly Tom, Linus Roache
- As Gina McKee ages Marion
- Tom Burgess, played by Harry Styles
- Marion Taylor, played by Emma Corrin
- Patrick Hazlewood is played by David Dawson.
Naturally, a lot of discussion around My Policeman has centred on the choice to cast singer-songwriter Harry Styles in the character of gay policeman Tom.
David Dawson, who starred in Peaky Blinders and Luther, will play Tom's wife Marion, who learns of her husband's forbidden love for Patrick Hazlewood via The Crown actress Emma Corrin.
Other actors have played the roles in earlier iterations; Tom is represented by Linus Roache, Marion by Gina McKee, and Patrick by Rupert Everett. Additionally, Kadiff Kirwan appears in a secret capacity.
The Plot: What is the Storyline of My Policeman?
The 1950s, a time of rapidly changing social culture, history, and politics, are when My Policeman is set. A young police officer named Tom Burgess is caught in the middle of history's shifting tides when he falls in love with Patrick Hazelwood, an artistic museum curator.
Along comes Marion, a teacher who develops feelings for Tom. Since Tom and Patrick's relationship seems unattainable given the times they live in, he marries Marion but never quits loving Patrick.
And so starts a difficult journey shared by three young people as they navigate social change, emotional upheaval, and unfulfilled love.
The three characters' yearning and regret from throughout their lives continue to surround them as the plot develops and time passes.
My Policeman is a story about a lengthy and difficult journey through life rather than a mystery or a suspenseful plot.
We already know what it's about, but we haven't yet learned how each character navigates their social identities, emotions, and self-discoveries, or how the chaos in their lives finally comes together.
Official Trailer of My Policeman
On June 15, 2022, Amazon Studios released the romantic drama film's official trailer. My Policeman appears to be an emotional rollercoaster for the three main protagonists, based on what the teaser portrays.
