Bronagh Waugh says Hollyoaks cast “control themselves” when Keith Duffy’s around!
Keith is of course Jay Duffy’s father, who’s currently starring on the show as Declan Brady.
Speaking to the PA, Bronagh said, “Everyone manages to control themselves nicely – most of us have met Keith before from the soap awards so it was cool.
“Keith is lovely and wicked. He has been on set a few times to chaperone his son – he is really supportive and just lets his son do his own thing, while he stays quietly in the background.”
And of Jay, 28-year-old Bronagh – who plays Cheryl Brady – said, “Jay’s a little sweetheart. He’s a really good actor and this is his first big role…
“He’s brilliant! It’s hard work but Jay has a guardian.”
Bronagh went on to praise the way in which Emmett J Scanlan’s character Brendan has changed since his son Declan’s arrival.
She said, “I think you have to do that with Brendan’s character – you have got to explore the other aspects to him and hopefully in the next year, we will explore more avenues to do with the Bradys and what made the family the way are they are.
“It is really interesting.”
