Can one copper save a community?
Early this year ID Fight Unit Member Dan Styles was cast in Harrigan, a feature film set in 1970s Newcastle.
Amongst the desperation and fear growing in a crime ridden sink estate in a northern England, a man becomes embroiled into saving what little decency and community life exists. It’s the winter of 1974 power-cuts and coal strikes cripple the country, which is reduced to a 3 day week alongside police 'centralisation'. Everything it seems is falling apart along with the community's only hope and protector the nearly retired Detective Sergeant Barry Harrigan played by Stephen Tompkinson (Wild at Heart, Brassed Off).
Dan plays Scott, one of the henchmen to the main baddy, Dunstan, played by Craig Conway (Dog Soldiers, Doomsday). Dan got to have two big fights with Stephen as well as some other police officers. Dan also had the pleasure of fighting Predator... well, the actor who played Predator in both AVP films, 7'1" actor Ian Whyte.
