Who did Jonas Armstrong play in The Bay and does he have a partner? Here’s what we know …
The new drama series The Drowning has already wowed the nation and tells the story of Jodie, whose son has been missing for eight years.
When she sees the teenager Daniel, she is convinced that he’s her missing child and stops at nothing to find out the truth.
The four-part series starring Jill Halfpenny and Rupert Penry-Jones will air on Channel 5 for four consecutive evenings.
So who is Jonas, what else was he in and does he have a girlfriend?

Jonas attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, graduated with a BA in Acting in 2003, and began his career at the Royal Theater in Northampton.

Jonas is probably best known for his role in the BBC adaptation of Robin Hood between 2006 and 2009.
He also played as Anthony Millington on Channel 4 Teachers and the crime thrillers Ghost Squad and Ripper Street.
The actor had a role opposite Tom Cruise in the science fiction thriller Edge of Tomorrow and even appeared in the eighth season of Death In Paradise with Dylan Sheperd.
TV fans might also recognize him from three episodes of the successful BBC One police drama Line of Duty or, more recently, as Sean Meredith in the ITV crime series The Bay.
Jonas is not married and keeps his private life like to get out of the spotlight.
It’s unclear if he has a partner, but the actor previously dated former Emmerdale actress Sammy Winward, who played Katie Sugden.
They started their relationship after meeting at an awards show in May 2007, but ended their relationship after two years due to work pressure.
