Soon after leaving the Scottish cop drama, Douglas landed a role in Who is Erin Carter?

However, his character couldn’t be more different from Detective Perez as Douglas got to play villain Daniel Lang.

When he landed the part, the actor admitted to having some concerns about his new project.

He shared with Radio Times: “With my Scottish complexion, I was afraid I was just going to disappear into a puddle on the floor.”

The actor confessed playing the baddie in a show is fun as he added: “It’s always fun to pretend to be firing a gun. It’s quite childhood-inducing.”

After creating a huge fanbase from Shetland, Douglas admitted because of his age there weren’t many roles for him anymore.

“People are looking for younger actors these days,” he pointed out.

“There’s a degree of, ‘I’ve been offered that, I’m grateful for the job, I’ll go and do it.’”
