Who plays Neil Wallis in The Trick?

Actor Jerome Flynn plays Neil Wallis, a PR expert who specializes in crisis management.

Neil works closely with Sam Bowen, a young father and public relations strategist who is drafted to help Phil Jones tell his side of the story.

The Trick is a full-length film that tells the true story of climate scientist Phil Jones (played by Jason Watkins).

His life was turned upside down when his computers were hacked, resulting in him being “canceled” for fabricating evidence of global warnings.

An investigation later found that he had not lied, although the damage done to global warming awareness had been withdrawn.

No matter how hard Jerome works, he will probably always be best known for being half of Robson and Jerome.

Robson Green and Jerome Flynn played together in Soldier Soldier between 1991 and 1995 and later formed the chart-topping duo Robson and Jerome.

Her version of Unchained Melody stayed at number one on the UK charts for seven weeks, sold more than 1.8 million copies and became the best-selling single of 1995.

Despite being offered millions for a third album, Robson and Jerome decided to give it up.

After the couple stopped making music together, both men focused on their respective acting careers.

Jerome then played DC Tom McCabe in Badger, Hector in Black Mirror, and Detective Inspector Bennet Drake on Ripper Street.

More recently, he appeared in John Wick 3, and Game of Thrones fans will recognize him as the woman-loving, fearless Bronn.

In his latest role he plays Neil Wallis in The Trick.

Is the Trick star Jerome Flynn married?

Trick star Jerome is reportedly single and has never been married.

He was previously linked with Game of Thrones co-star Lena Headey.

He is also believed to have dated a woman named Anna Jacobs, with whom he followed the spiritual teachings of Andrew Cohen at EnlightenNext.

After his relationship with Anna ended, Jerome left the organization.

Jerome was renovating a Georgian farm he bought in a remote part of Pembrokeshire, Wales.

The once-derelict farm has been converted into a self-sustaining operation, with barns converted into vacation homes and a large walled garden that grows fruit and vegetables.

In 2019 Jerome admitted that while he feels “perfect” within himself, he is a “romantic” and doesn’t think it is too late for him to find his “life partner”.

In an interview with RTE he said: “It took me time to get to know myself and to feel complete, but now I am ready for my life partner, so to speak.

“I am a romantic and have quite a lot of love in my heart.

“I love children and have sponsored children and nephews and nieces, but I still feel and hope [a family] could happen to me. “
