Richard Onslow Roper, portrayed by Hugh Laurie, is a main character in the BBC/AMC British-American television miniseries The Night Manager. He is the main antagonist.


Richard Roper is well born, well-educated, has grace and has charm. But behind the public mask – billionaire businessman, entrepreneur, philanthropist, gentleman – lurks a Mephistopheles. The worst man in the world has built an empire from his trade in human life, selling arms to the highest bidder and purchasing whatever souls he can along the way. When Pine saves his son – his love for him, Roper’s only weakness – Roper welcomes him into his family. Which may just prove his undoing.
