Who is in the cast of Dublin Murders?

Detective Robert “Rob” Reilly – Killian Scott

Killian Scott stars as English Detective, Rob Reilly in Dublin Murders.

Described as “handsome, charismatic and charming” but “ultimately, very very damaged”, Scott has suffered a traumatic childhood.

Since joining the Dublin Police Force, he worked his way up to Detective but always felt isolated, until he met Detective Cassandra ‘Cassie’ Madox (played by Sarah Greene).

Scott said: “There are two things that make Rob stick out, it’s his distant boarding school accent and the fact he seems to have modelled himself on a 1960s French detective film where the wears a suit and looks quite sharp.

“The specifics of how he ends up in his role in Ireland aren’t too apparent initially as it is tied to a spoiler in the story.”

Scott is best known for playing Tommy in the RTE series Love/Hate and Seth in Damnation.


Detective Cassandra ‘Cassie’ Madox – Sarah Greene

Sarah Greene plays Irish Detective, Cassie Madox in Dublin Murders.

Cassie originally worked undercover but was fast-tracked to join the murder squad.

Greene said: “She’s [Cassie] is very determined and very headstrong and also a very manipulative person.

“There are two sides of her personality and she is fighting with her darker side as the story evolves. I had a great time playing her, it was a gift as a part, one which I think is pretty interesting.”

Greene is an Irish actress and seer, best known for her West End and Broadway career.

TV audience may recognise Greene from playing Hectate Poole in Penny Dreadful, Princess Judith in Vikings and Maxine in Ransom.

She also starred as Sinead Mulligan in the Irish comedy film, The Guard.

Detective Frank Mackey – Tom Vaughan-Lawlor

Tom Vaughan-Lawlor stars in Dublin Murders as Detective Frank Mackey.

Frank leads the Dublin police force undercover team and previously worked closely with Cassie.

Vaughan-Lawlor said: “I would describe Frank as a renegade, and I suppose he is really an anarchic, he is irreverent and antiestablishment, and his moral code is ambiguous.”

Vaughan-Lawlor is best known for playing Nidge in the RTE series Love/Hate, starring alongside Dublin Murder’s co-star, Killian Scott.

He is also recognised as playing Ebony Maw in the Avenger’s film series and Byrne in Peaky Blinders.

Superintendent O’Kelly – Conleth Hill

Hill’s other credits include Suits, Blue Heaven, A Patch of Fog and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.

Detective Sam O’Neill – Moe Dunford
