Liar series 2 on ITV

After almost two years away from our screens, series 2 of Liar arrived on March 2nd and it returns with a total of six new episodes.

In series 1 we followed the characters of Laura and Andrew across multiple timelines with plenty of flashbacks and flashforwards, concluding with the death of Andrew.

Series 2 follows Andrew in flashback scenes in the run-up to his apparent death as well as examining Laura’s supposed part to play as she’s placed at the heart of the police investigation. 

Who is Greg Maxwell?

Greg Maxwell is the son of police detective Rory Maxwell (Danny Webb).

He’s thought of very highly, especially by his father, as he is described as a rising star in the NCA (National Crime Agency) and was just promoted to Branch Commander as series 2 got underway.

While he has appeared sporadically throughout series 2, in episode 5 we learn that Greg was being blackmailed, as well as his father, by an unknown individual, suspected to be Andrew. 

It emerges that the blackmailer has evidence that police bright spark, Greg, had previously had a cocaine overdose, something that would not look good for a rising star in the force.

As the episode progresses it appears that Rory and Greg have been working together to frame Laura for the murder of Andrew.

Greg Maxwell is played by Jack Colgrave Hirst.

He is a relative newcomer to the acting scene with just eight credits to his name according to IMDb.
