Now living in poverty in London after throwing his career away trying to make it in Hollywood, Thorncroft has been left to watch on helplessly as his glamorous ex-girlfriend and former co-star Patricia Deville (Essie Davis) continues to find success as a news reporter and is now happily married to his former stunt double Clive Parnevik (Simon Farnaby).
