His star is rising and he has even been linked with taking over the role of James Bond.
Richard’s ever rising popularity also means the show may risk him not being available.
He added: “What’s the next step for a character like David Budd? The thinking is for all of us to have a break and come back to it fresh maybe in a year or so.
“I enjoyed playing him and I think the public liked him. We’ll get together and see what’s there.”

Bodyguard creator Jed Mercurio revealed he’d be interested in returning to the political thriller.
He told the Daily Mirror: “I have got some ideas for a second series, but it is worth waiting until the run is finished to see which bits worked and which bits didn’t work for the audience.”
After the last episode ended on September 23, 2018, The Sun exclusively revealed that Jed is writing FOUR spin-off shows from Bodyguard.
After Juliet was killed in an explosion in episode four there has been much speculation that Julia is still alive.
The theory was strengthened after eagle-eyed fans spotted that Keeley Hawes was listed on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB.com) as appearing in the final episode.
But however, there was no sign of her in the season finale and she is in fact really dead.
