Ruth Wilson teases a return to Luther during an appearance on Good Morning Britain despite her character Alice ‘falling to her death’

Ruth Wilson has teased a possible return to the hit thriller Luther during an appearance on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday.

The actress, 41, who plays the character Alice Morgan, has said people will need to ‘wait and see’, after she was questioned about a return, despite her character ‘falling to her death.’

Speaking to presenters Richard Madeley and Kate Garraway, she said: ‘I can’t comment sorry. That’s a very Alice answer.

‘Wait and see as always, I’ll keep the mystery forever unfolding. She’s [Alice] always close, she’s close to me all the time, so Alice is never far away.’

In season five, Luther, played by Idris Elba, 50, and Alice had a tense stand-off on the thriller that resulted in her falling to her ‘death’ after falling through scaffolding in a chase scene.

Despite her ‘death’ Idris revealed that psychopathic Alice could still be alive in the ‘Luther universe’, during an appearance on Capital Radio in March.

The pair have one of the most dysfunctional on-screen relationships and after fans called for Ruth to reprise her role as Alice, it was revealed the door is open for a return.

While she does not appear in the latest installment of the series – a movie called Luther: The Fallen Sun – that doesn’t mean she’ll never be seen again.  

On Capital Radio, when Idris was asked if there would be a Luther spin-off following Alice, he revealed: ‘This is a question for Neil Krause, who writes Luther and I think he’s definitely thought about that’.

‘And I think we’ve all imagined an Alice show because it would just be amazing. But also, I think Alison in the Luther universe is not dead. 

‘Because in performance capture you can be anything. I’m coming back as Alice!’ 

Ruth also spoke about her latest venture The Woman In The Wall and discussed what it was like preparing for the role in the brand new drama.

She said: ‘Most jobs exhaust me. Yeah it was tiring but I think there was enough lightness and fun actually, I did have fun playing Lorna.

‘I mean she does some great things. And fun things. And the opening scene sets the whole show up. It’s like this is not going to be your straightforward drama. This is gonna be unusual and this character’s unusual, and it’s gonna surprise you.

‘For example, the sleepwalking scene, that could have been a zombie sleepwalking scene. I watched people do sleepwalking videos.

‘People record themselves sleepwalking and they’re hilarious. So I was like, oh, I can go this route with it. 

‘So you find the quirk in that darkness, you find the humour and the lightness and the humanity. And that gets you through.’
