The actor explained that he was interested to see how Eddie was following in the footsteps of his father Barry Hearn, who was a major figure in British boxing in the ’80s and’ 90s.

He explained: “I was very interested in Barry Hearn’s son, Eddie.

“They are not gangsters, but you have a definite idea that he is trying to come out of his father’s shadow and I find these kinds of people fascinating. In most gangster tales, the son grows up to be his father, and this is the case in [‘Gangs of London’] but I think Sean is in conflict.
