“I thought it was a really terrifying, terrible thing, and it might have happened to some people who saw it.

“It’s really annoying, who knows what could have happened?”

Where does Jonas Armstrong come from?

Jonas was born in Dublin, Ireland.

He grew up there before his family moved to Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire, when he was six.

Jonas attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and graduated with a BA in Drama in 2003.

He began his acting career at the Royal Theater in Northampton.

Jonas now lives in Lytham, a stone’s throw from Morecambe, where he shot The Bay.

He says, “I was born in Dublin but grew up in Blackpool because my parents were vendors there on and off the promenade. You know the Pleasure Beach, the Tower and the like.

“We drove around the Fylde, rented houses and then settled in St. Annes.”

The drowning will continue on Channel 5 on Wednesday February 3 and Thursday February 4, 2021 at 9 p.m.
