Richard Madden from The Bodyguard on cover of British GQ


I have just started watching the hit BBC show Bodyguard, where Richard Madden made everyone want to secure a high level government position for the sole purpose of getting their very own bodyguard.

And now, the actor is bringing a lot of that smouldering David Budd energy to his cover of British GQ, for the January/February 2019 issue. 

“I finished Bodyguard and didn’t want to act again,” Madden told GQ. “It had taken so much out of me physically, mentally and personally […] You didn’t get a day off. My character doesn’t get a second off. It took more out of me than any­thing else I’ve done.”


In the article he talks about Bodyguard, Game of Thrones and all the James Bond rumours currently floating around the 32-year-old Scottish Actor. It is a good read about an actor who we will hear about more and more in the future. Read an exclusive extract from the interview and download to read the full interview now on digital edition.
