The Emmy-nominated actor, who plays vampire Matthew Clairmont in A Discovery of Witches, spoke about being a part of the Sky fantasy drama, which will air its last season in January.

"It’s been great, I’m very proud of it," he said. "I think we will look back on it very fondly in years to come. We’ve met a lot of great and amazing people, it’s been lovely to work so closely with Teresa, it’s been a real dream.

"There’s not one series that she hasn’t turned up and been pregnant or had a newborn, she really is quite something."

He continued: "There’s a lot of very, very faithful actors who put themselves quite out there and had to do some quite odd things in the show, there’s been a lot of bravery.

"And to get to work with a great friend, James Purefoy, to play my father was endlessly amusing and to have Lindsay Duncan play my mum has been utterly sensational."

His co-star Teresa Palmer, who plays witch Diana Bishop, added that ending the show is "bittersweet in many ways".

"We know that this is the last one and we are going to be saying goodbye to so many familiar faces.

"But I have really loved having three solid years to marinate in a character and get to know her and the intricacies of who she is.

"I celebrate her triumphs and her wins and I’m there with her in her vulnerabilities and the moments of feeling unsure and uncertain and afraid," she said.

"I love that about her. She’s such a strong role model and I love how much she leans into her authentic self. I’m proud of her and I know she will stay with me forever."
