The popular UK series Primeval returned to the air on BBC America last month, bringing with it thrilling new stories of the men and women of the Anomaly Research Centre (ARC), the government agency that investigates anomalies, otherwise known as “earthquakes in time” that allow passage to other times and places that often brings dangerous creatures from the distant past or future to threaten lives.

One of the members of the ARC is Connor Temple played by actor Andrew-Lee Potts. At the beginning of the show Connor was a student of Paleontology, brought into the group by his professor who was placed in charge of the ARC. He was seen as nothing more than an aid to the team, but as time progressed, he became an important part of the team especially after he built, programmed and operated the Anomaly Detection Device, which was based on his professor’s discovery that anomalies cause radio interference.

While Connor may be considered a geek who is deeply interested in dinosaurs and science-fiction television and films, he is an adorable nerd with an unrivaled passion for his work and the girl he loves.

Andrew-Lee is obviously best known for his role in this series, but he has also appeared in the Syfy mini-series Alice, which was a reimagining of the classic Lewis Carroll stories of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass where he starred as Hatter alongside Caterina Scorsone as Alice. He also had small roles in the horror flick 1408 and the mini-series Band of Brothers.

Primeval airs on BBC America Saturday nights at 9/8C. Tune in to see the adorable Connor in action.
