Adrian Lester has admitted he isn’t upset about his TV show Hustle coming to an end. The actor, who plays chief grifter Mickey Stone, said he only agreed to appear in the eighth series when he found out it would be the last. “My feeling was that if it was going to go on and on, then it was time for me to bow out. But I didn’t want to miss the chance to be in the final series,” he explained. Hustle’s demise coincides with the end of other popular long-running series, such as Spooks and Waking The Dead, but Lester is optimistic about what it means for television.
