Mrs Brown’s Boys actor Gary Hollywood has revealed his hopes of a ‘completely different’ television career after quitting the BBC One sticom.
The 41-year-old star played Scottish hairdresser Dino Doyle in the show since it first started airing in 2011 until last year when he quit following alleged dispute over pay.
However, Gary is now hoping to move onto other acting work – but in an entirely different genre.
‘With Mrs Brown’s Boys, I was involved in a job that enabled me to have a nice life, Hollywood said. ‘But it also held me back because I’ve not been able to do other things.
‘I played Dino for so long, so I’d love to do a serious role to take me away from that.’
He added to Daily Star: ‘I’d love to go back into drama and do something in a completely different light.’
Hollywood quit Mrs Brown’s Boys in 2020 along with fellow co-star Damien McKiernan, who had played Rory Brown since 2017.
He claimed he was being underpaid compared to his co-stars, many of which are family members of creator Brendan O’Carroll, who plays Agnes Brown.
The show’s recent Christmas special suffered a blow with the lowest ratings in years.
The news came just weeks after the BBC had announced plans to secure the programme on its festive line-up through to 2026.
Mrs Brown’s Boys is available for catch-up on BBC iPlayer.
