Multi-award-winning actor Ardal O’Hanlon is probably best known for his iconic portrayal of Father Dougal Maguire in the hit Channel Four comedy Father Ted - however he is also an accomplished stage actor, comedian and writer.
His bestselling debut novel The Talk of the Town features in the influential tome 1001 Books to Read Before you Die and has been described as a cross between The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 ¾ and The Butcher Boy.
His TV and film credits are vast and most recently he joined the cast of BBC’s Death in Paradise as the lead detective, Jack Mooney. He is equally comfortable on stage, both as a highly acclaimed standup comedian and as a theatre actor. His theatre work includes an Olivier Award-winning role in the 2014 West End/Donmar Warehouse production of Conor McPherson’s The Weir.
Ardal will be joined by BBC journalist and presenter William Crawley to chat about his wide-ranging career, his love of literature and his famous acting creations.
