‘People find it fascinating’: Happy Valley’s James Norton reveals US stars Amy Schumer and Bob Dylan ‘love’ the crime drama

James Norton revealed US stars Amy Schumer and Bob Dylan ‘love’ Happy Valley as he discussed the drama’s popularity in a recent interview. 

The actor, 37, who plays vindictive villain Tommy Lee Royce in the series, explained that Americans find England ‘fascinating.’  

Speaking to Vera magazine, he said he received a direct message on Twitter from comedian Amy confessing her love for Happy Valley. 

James gushed: ‘People find our little island fascinating. When you ask Americans where they’re from, they’re still obsessed with our heritage because it’s in some ways theirs.

‘Happy Valley is quintessentially British in its specificity to that part of England. There’s a fascination with that.’

James continued: ‘It’s a brilliant police procedural but at its heart it’s about family. What translates across the world is that everyone knows what it is to have messed up families that you can’t tear yourself away from. It’s cool.’ 

His comments come after a trailer for the final episode of Happy Valley was released today ahead of the upcoming finale on Sunday.

The 16 second clip teases the final showdown between Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire) and Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton) after his daring escape from court before the police sergeant is shown breaking down in tears.

The trailer opens with Tommy’s son Ryan (Rhys Connah) being questioned by police about when he last had contact with his dangerous dad.

A series of scenes of the police moving in on Tommy follow as Catherine is heard saying ‘he’s still out there, he’s going to be angry and he’s going to be even more desperate and dangerous’.

The short clip ends with a bloodied Tommy appearing to hit somebody on the ground and a final shot of Catherine in tears. 

Viewers tuned into the breathless penultimate episode of the BBC drama on Sunday evening as Tommy Lee Royce revealed his grand plans.

Tommy escaped at the end of the fourth episode of this series with fans learning in Sunday’s fifth instalment that he planned to run off to Marbella, with his son Ryan in tow.  

The end is near: A trailer for the final episode of Happy Valley has been released ahead of the finale on Sunday showing Sarah Lancashire’s Catherine Cawood breaking down in tears 

Viewers admitted they could barely watch the dramatic episode as everything lined up for a dramatic showdown between Tommy and Sargent Catherine, as he revealed he plans to kill her before jetting off to Spain.

Producers are said to be so desperate to keep the show’s climax a secret that they have filmed five different endings.

More than six million viewers are expected to tune in on Sunday to learn how the cat-and-mouse game will be resolved.
