I used to watch Death In Paradise with my dad in Jamaica years ago when it started and now being on the show, knowing he’ll be watching me, it’s a really surreal moment.
“I can’t wait to add to the magic. “
Ralf recently revealed that he has been separated from his fiancee throughout the filming of the latest Death In Paradise series due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The actor is engaged to playwright Lindsey Ferrentino, 32, and has spoken about how the couple’s marriage was put on hold after she suggested they were married in Guadeloupe where the series is filmed.
Speaking on The One Show, he said, “Well they are [wedding plans] pretty much pending. She couldn’t even get out on the island this time.
It was an idea she had, ‘why don’t we get married here?’ I was like, because I’m busy trying to shoot a TV show where I’m in every scene.
