Death In Paradise

Don GiletDon Gilet











Don Gilet is the new lead detective of the hit BBC show Death In Paradise. 

The British actor, known for his role as the villainous Lucas Johnson in the soap EastEnders, will play detective inspector Mervin Wilson. 

His character will travel to the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie from London and takes over Ralf Little. 

Gilet said: “Being offered the new lead role in Death In Paradise feels like a deeply loved and incredibly precious jewel has been placed in my hands. 

This is a big show, with a big heart and the love continually grows for it. It is my intention to never lose sight of that and to remain grateful, humbled and dedicated. 

Even during those testing times when every sinew is screaming at me to run off the set and dive into the sea, swimming pool or an ice-cold beer – whichever happens to be closer at the time.” 

He has also starred in Holby City, Silent Witness, Doctor Who, Shetland and The Stranger. 

Gilet made a guest appearance in series four Death In Paradise episode Stab In The Dark as Andre Morgan when Kris Marshall as DI Humphrey Goodman was the lead detective on the island. 

He has recently begun filming in Guadeloupe and will appear in a feature-length Christmas special in December before a 14th series in 2025.
