Who does actor Conleth Hill play in Suits?

Conleth Hill plays the character of Edward Darby in Suits.

Hill portrayed Darby in seasons two and three of the legal drama.

Darby was an internationally renowned corporate lawyer and the managing partner of Darby International.

He was also the former managing partner of Pearson Darby and Pearson Darby Specter.


Darby had given up his license to practice law in the US in a deal with prosecutor Cameron Dennis (played by Gary Cole).

He had wanted to spare Ava Hessington (Michelle Fairley) and as part of the deal, Dennis agreed to pursue Stephen Huntley (Max Beesley) instead if Hill forfeited his law licence.

Following the dissolution of Pearson Darby, he returned to London and reinstated Darby International.

In Darby’s final episode, it was revealed the reason he wanted to protect Ava was because he was her father’s former attorney and lover.
