Ian McClain, the star of the Dairy Girls, says Tommy Ternan is “quiet and philosophical” rather than playing a comedic joking in the meantime.
The couple is well known and loved for their on-screen reporting as a fight between Grandpa Joe (McLean) and Gary (Tiernan) on the Channel 4 sitcom.
But to make up for it, the pair are now calmer and more focused, according to the Belfast-born star McElhaney, who said the popular comics are a lot quieter than fans might expect.
He told the Irish Daily Mirror: “He’s cool and he’s actually very calm, reserved and philosophical, Tommy.
“He’s not really joking left, right, and center.”
It comes after star Monica Jackson, who plays Jerry’s daughter Erin and great-granddaughter Joe, admitted that she only cried on the last day of filming for the Dairy Girls when she saw that Ternan was being emotional.
Speaking on the red carpet before the city’s third and final season premiere, which was the inspiration for the series, McLaughlin, who starred on Game of Thrones as Sir Barstan Seal, said the success of the Dairy Girls has been so rewarding. Decades later in the industry.
“It’s great. You know that you can spend your life working as an actor and that the world doesn’t know and shouldn’t know.”
“So when you are interested in something, it turns out that you are lucky enough, in a broader sense, it is very rewarding.
“You know you don’t do things in a vacuum, in fact people understand and love them. And when people come to you and tell you how much you like them, then what you don’t like.” It’s really cool.”

And against the backdrop of Kenneth Branagh in Belfast, which is scattered all over the world, and the huge Hollywood movie crew who have toured Ireland in recent years, he says there’s never been a better time to work as an actor in Ireland.
“This is a great place for a movie. Whether it’s a movie or TV. A lot has been done here, not necessarily here, but it has been done here and it’s very good for the industry here and for all the players here.”
The 73-year-old continued, “I remember when I started acting here, for ten years of what I was getting into, I was going somewhere else.
“Since a lot of what we were doing was about problems here and it was very difficult to shoot here, we had to go somewhere else.
So the whole sea has changed, you can be here and work beyond the localization of materials in industry.
It is nice to know. Great when you get something that has the warmth and local charm. “
The first episode of the third season of Derry Girls premiered on Channel 4 on Tuesday evening, at 9:15 p.m. You can watch the first episode now on All4.
