Wife chooses my roles says dyslexic star

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY KAREN ROCKETT

LINE of Duty star Stephen Graham ad­mits his dys­lexia is so bad, his wife reads his scripts for him and chooses his roles.

Graham, 45, says he re­lies on his ac­tress wife Han­nah Wal­ters.

He says: “I’m dyslexic so I strug­gle. My mis­sus reads the script and says whether or not I’m do­ing it. She has made some good choices.

“I have to read it and read it and read it, then make it look like it’s the first time I’m say­ing it.”

Graham, who is up for a best sup­port­ing ac­tor Bafta for Save Me, re­cently stunned view­ers with his char­ac­ter John Cor­bett’s death in Line of Duty.

He was killed off as he tried to quit a group he was un­der cover with be­fore get­ting his throat cut.
