Liar season 2 cast: Who is in the cast of Liar? From Ioan Guffard to Joanne Froggatt

ITV’s drama Liar ended with Andrew Earlham (Ioan Guffard) being discovered as a serial rapist, with a box full of videotapes showing his crimes hidden in his mother’s shed. However, in the very last moment, Andrew’s body was seen in the Essex marshes with a slit across his throat and no murder suspects in sight. Here’s everything you need to know about the cast of Liar season 2.

Who is in the cast of Liar season 2?

Andrew Earlham – Ioan Guffard

Andrew wound up dead at the end of season one but he will still play a major part in series two.

The show will feature plenty of flashbacks which show the time between him escaping and his body being found weeks later.

In a statement about Andrew’s role in the upcoming episodes, ITV said: “In equal parts charismatic and depraved, Andrew was a man who committed monstrous acts. But his solipsistic nature proved more dangerous than ever, after he was forced to go on the run.

“As we’ll see in series two, the fugitive Andrew sought vengeance.”

Ioan Guffard is probably best known for playing Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four franchise but was also Lancelot in King Arthur and Tony Blair in W.

As well as these, Guffard was in Titanic where he played Fifth Officer Lower, starring alongside Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet.

Laura Nielson – Joanne Froggatt

In the first series of Liar, Joanne was drugged and raped by Andrew and by the end of the series, she managed to prove not only what he did to her but what he did to several other women.

After Andrew’s body is found in the marshes, the police start to investigate and begin to suspect it was her who killed him.

Actress Froggatt is best known for playing lady’s maid Anna Bates in Downton Abbey but in the late 90s she played Zoe Tattersall in Coronation Street.

She has also been in Life on Mars, Dark Angel and The Commons.

DI Karen Renton – Katherine Kelly

Actress Kelly will be joining the Liar cast for season two after her character DI Karen Renton has been sent to find out who murdered Andrew and from the get-go, it looks like Laura is her main suspect.

Kelly’s first major role was playing Becky in Coronation Street and since leaving the ITV soap, she has gone on to star in some of the most popular dramas on television in recent years.

Some of her credits include Mr Selfridge, The Night Manager, Gentleman Jack and Happy Valley.

Fans will have to wait to find out if she can crack the case and find Andrew’s killer.

“The scars are not healed yet and Katie is living on a knife edge between recovery and breakdown.”
