Where is the original Death in Paradise cast now?
Fidel Best – Gary Carr
Officer Fidel Best was in the first three seasons of Death in Paradise before he left as he received a promotion on the neighbouring island of St Lucia.
Actor Gary Carr who portrayed Fidel starred in film 21 Bridges and series The Good Fight and Modern Love after leaving the BBC One show.
His biggest role to date though was in HBO’s The Deuce as CC which he was in for two years.
Last year, Carr played Kieran in BBC Two’s comedy-drama Trigonometry.
DI Charlie Hulme – Hugo Speer
While Miller is thought of as the first detective, it was actually DI Charlie Hulme who was killed just moments into the first episode of series one.
Actor Hugo Speer has gone on to star in numerous television series since his appearance in Death in Paradise.
These include Watson and Oliver, Bedlam, The Musketeers, London Kills, Britannia and Marcella.
His longest reoccurring role has been in daytime drama Father Brown on BBC One where he has played Chief Inspector Valentine since 2013.
He is expected to reprise his role in Father Brown when the show returns for its ninth season sometime this year.
Officer Lily Thomson – Lenora Crichlow
Officer Lily Thomson became Death in Paradise’s first ever murderer as she killed DI Hulme.
Her motive for the killing was that she was fed up of the Commissioner hiring British detectives instead of her, who had lived on Saint Marie her whole life.
Actress Lenora Crichlow is another familiar face when it comes to the world of TV series as she was one of the stars of supernatural drama Being Human on BBC Three.
She has also starred in Black Mirror, Back in the Game, Suspects, Flaked and Deception.
Most recently, Crichlow played Billie McEvoy in sci-fi series Avenue 5.
Officer Dwayne Myers – Danny John-Jules
Charming Officer Dwayne Myers actually featured in the very first scene of Death of Paradise.
He made his exit in season seven when he left to sail the seas with his estranged dad Nelson.
Shortly after leaving the series, Danny John-Jules went on to star in the 16th season of Strictly Come Dancing where he was paired up with dancer Amy Dowden but was kicked off in week eight.
John-Jules also left so he could film a special episode of sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf as Cat.
Camille Bordey – Sarah Martins
Fans were very suspicious of Camille Bordey when she was first introduced but it was found out later on in the first episode that she was an undercover officer.
Actress Sara Martins left the show midway through season four but has made a special appearance in series 10.
Since leaving, Martins has had several minor parts in shows but it wasn’t until 2018 that she got a reoccurring role in French drama The Coroner.
Last year, she was also in comedy Reunions and drama Grand Hotel, before making a brief comeback to Saint Marie.
