Despite Stephen Graham’s star status among Hollywood’s elite, he is still one of the most down to earth actors in the business.

Although he has worked with some of the biggest stars over the years, for him, there was only one person that left him feeling starstruck.

“Steven Gerrard,” Graham laughed. “That’s the only time I’ve ever lost my bottle, I found myself talking posh and thought, ‘Stephen, what are you doing? Shut up, where’s this voice come from?’”

Code 404 follows two top crime-fighting detectives, DI John Major (Mays) and DI Roy Carver (Graham).

An undercover sting goes horribly wrong when John is shot and killed, so Roy, plagued with guilt and regret towards his colleague’s death, seeks solace from the only person who understands him. This person just happens to be John’s recently widowed wife Kelly, played by Anna Maxwell Martin (Motherland).
