Danny O’Carroll talks of ‘amazing moment’ he reunited with dad Brendan after seven months apart

 



Mrs Brown’s Boys star Danny O’Carroll spoke of the ‘amazing’ moment he got to see his father Brendan after seven months apart.


The father and son reunited for the filming of the Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas and New Year specials.


Brendan flew back from his home in Florida to the UK for the special.

We managed to get a Christmas special and a New Year’s special in so we were very lucky to get it all in during this mess,’ Danny said.

The actor, who plays Buster in the hit show, said it was ‘amazing’ to see his father again after so many months and to give him a hug.

‘To get to see him when we were over there was pretty special and then I had to say goodbye to him when we were finished, he was flying back to Florida but at least I got to see him and at least I got to give him a hug.’

Although the cast was all together again, they had to follow strict social distancing rules during filming and self-isolate. They ere also tested regularly with the warning that if anyone fell ill with the virus, filming would be pulled.

Danny told Muireann O’Connel and Ray Foley on the Six O’Clock Show that he wasn’t able to visit his own dad despite him staying just upstairs from him.

‘The quarantine was quite tough because we had to go over to Glasgow and had to quarantine for a week,’ he explained.


‘I knew he was upstairs and I wasn’t allowed to go up to him because of this whole pandemic.


‘BBC were very strict, obviously, in case anyone got the COVID.


‘But it’s done and we’re all delighted to have something in the can and to be able to show it on Christmas Day.’

Brendan O’Carroll also had a hard time writing the two specials as rules would continuously change in order to adapt to the virus.

‘There were new rules, different rules every day so up to two weeks beforehand we had an audience and then we were told we going to bring the audience down to 30 people and then when we got there we were told there was no audience.’

This made filming difficult for Danny who likes to ‘feed off’ an audience in order to garner what lines get the most laughs.

‘I’m just delighted that we have it done because it was touch and go for a while.’
