Mrs Brown's Boys star Danny O'Carroll says there is no pressure for his sons to become actors like him

 Danny and wife Amanda's sons Jamie and Blake have already appeared on Mrs Brown's Boys alongside their famous family, but the Dubliner says he will support them in the future 'no matter what they want to do'






Danny O'Carroll says there is no pressure for his sons to follow his footsteps and become an actor.

The Dubliner, famed for his role as Buster Brady on hit BBC sitcom Mrs. Brown's Boys, shares sons Jamie and Blake with his wife Amanda.

Danny's children have already made their TV debut alongside their family members, including their grandfather Brendan O'Carroll who takes the lead role of Agnes Brown.

But the actor says there was never any pressure for them to star on the show, adding that eldest son Jamie, who has appeared on the show since he was five years old, almost didn't go through with it.

"I remember collecting him from the airport and he said that he didn't want to do it anymore, he was too nervous. I said that it was no problem and he didn't have to do anything," Danny told RSVP.

"I brought him into rehearsals the following day, his grandad had a little chat with him and he agreed to do it.

"From there, he was hooked and everyone wanted him to stay in the cast. He was so good, I don't know where he gets it from [jokes]!"


Danny and Amanda live with their sons in Donegal, and now that they are approaching teenage territory the TV star says all he wants for them in the future is to be "happy and healthy".

He said: "As long as they are happy and healthy, I will be happy. Whether they go down the road of acting or not, it doesn't bother me.

"There as one stage where Jamie, who plays Bono on the show, wanted to be a marine biologist and I was a bit shocked. I don't know where he got that from."

The proud dad went on to say that if his sons decide to go to college, he will support them no matter what.

"Jamie is a very intelligent kid so I hope acting doesn't get in his way if he wants to go to college," he said.

"I will always be there for them no matter what they want to do."
