Belfast Telegraph - But he's been enjoying getting back into The Fall where he plays the part of James Tyler, an abusive husband who blames himself for the death of his young son and who in the first series goes to Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) for counselling, little realising that he's a sadistic serial killer.
Brian had hoped his character might be written into the second season which has been filming in Belfast for the past few months. And sure enough writer Allen Cubitt did expand his role.
"Obviously I can't say anything about the plot. But it's looking great," says Brian, who has worked extensively with the man of the moment Jamie Dornan, who has also starred as Christian Grey in the upcoming movie Fifty Shades of Grey from the steamy EL James books.
Brian, who has four brothers and a sister, says: "He's a great guy. He's really down to earth."
"He's just one of us, a typical Belfast bloke. He's one of the nicest people I have ever acted with."
