Love/Hate’s Tommy set for BBC

Jameson 394










Love/Hate star Killian Scott is set to follow in his on-screen partner Charlie Murphy’s footsteps after it was announced he has landed himself a major role on BBC.

As well as reprising the minor role he had in Call The Midwife, the 29-year-old Dubliner has landed a part in new comedy series Siblings.

It tells the story of a feuding brother and sister and the trouble they get up to in their daily lives.

BBC have commissioned six episodes of the new series and it is due to be released later on in the year.

Killian, who trained at the Drama Centre in London, famously said how he had to lose his Sandymount D4 accent in order to fulfil the role as North Dublin gangster Tommy.

“I grew up with a lot of it and some of my mates have the accent. I don’t naturally have that accent, but you hear it all your life, so you can slip into it,” he said.

“It was just a case of refining it. You have to iron out the syllables.”

His on-screen wife, who played Siobhain, has seen her career go from strength to strength following major roles on BBC dramas Rippier Street, Happy Valley and Quirke.
