Bodyguard star kicked out of Netflix HQ and refused bottle of ‘staff only’ water

Richard Madden is the star of one of the year’s biggest TV shows, with a record breaking number of people tuning in to watch him in tense final of The Bodyguard.

The BBC drama was picked up by Netflix and hit screens in America this week, but the actor still got into a bit of a pickle during a visit to the streaming service’s headquarters.

During an interview on Amercia’s KTLA Morning News claimed he had been asked to leave the offices after trying to take a bottle of Netflix branded water.

He explained: "I walked in and was told I was in the wrong building.

"But there was a fridge of water, Netflix-branded water, which I went to grab a bottle of and he said you have to go around the corner for your guys’ show.

"I said ‘cool, I’ll just grab a bottle of water, which I was told no I’m not allowed to, it’s for Netflix employees only.

"I said, well I am a Netflix employee, I’m on a show.

"He said ‘sir, you have to put that water back now’. I was like, seriously? Surely I can have a bottle of water.

"But again he just said ‘no, you have to put that water back now. You have to leave now sir’.

"They held the door open for me and I left the building."

Oh dear!

Earlier this week Richard confirmed he’s to begin talks about a second series of The Bodyguard.

He’s planning to meet up with the BBC One drama show’s creator Jed Mercurio in a few weeks to discuss if there’s a future for personal protection officer David Budd.

More than 17 million people saw the show over a month, the largest number for a non-sporting or national event since 2010.

Mirror Online has contacted Netflix for a comment.
