Newest member of the gang is Danny Blue, played by Marc Warren. A cheeky chappie with an eye for the ladies, he is young, ambitious and determined to prove he's got what it takes. Keen to learn from Mickey, an inevitable power struggle develops as the student seeks to surpass his teacher.
Blue is a rookie con artist who excels at card tricks and pickpocketing but is eager to learn about the dying art of the long con and holds Mickey Bricks, the master of this art, in the highest regard. "Danny's a bit like me. He certainly looks and sounds like me," jokes Warren. "I like to think that Danny is the kind of everyman out there. He's the one that the audience can relate to, the cheeky chappie and he is quite nice actually."
