Background of character
Martins Imhangbe is best known for his role as Ben on a UK show called Skins. His character was one of my favorites in that series. He plays Will Mondich, owner of The Gentleman’s Club, in season 2 of Dan + Nora. He’s such a fun character to watch, but also very complex. There are multiple layers to Will and what he does when he’s not running his club. As I watched more episodes of season 2, I found myself liking him more and more!
Martins Imhangbe is a rising star in both Canada and South Africa. Imhangbe’s international career includes credits on NCIS: New Orleans, Stitchers, Person of Interest and his Canadian television roles include Orphan Black, Blackstone, Cardinal, Bomb Girls and more. He is also a classically trained actor who has worked with many theatre companies including Soulpepper and Stratford Festival.
Known for his success in boxing and his fondness for scotch, Will Mondrich seems to have it all. But that doesn’t mean he’s happy. With a sad past and even sadder present, Will seeks comfort in companionship—and he finds that at Miss Thornton’s Gentlemen’s Club. Though not every gentleman feels comfortable stepping into a house of ill repute, Will has no qualms about holding court over brandy and cigars with some of London’s most powerful men.
Character developments in books written by author Julia Quinn
In Julia Quinn’s sixth novel, A Lady By Midnight, Will Mondrich is an elite gentleman who owns a high-class club that caters to all sorts of debauchery. What makes him so different from most people? For one thing, he’s incredibly kindhearted and patient—he took in a crippled girl who used to work for him and her family when they had no place else to go. Will was never married because he wanted a wife like no other: She would be ladylike, classy, sweet…all qualities he knows don’t exist within himself; he was never with a woman his whole life because how could someone like him deserve such sweetness?
