In the run-up to our Talking TV Drama Event on October 17th/18th in Galway city, we’re asking our 14 guests some questions about themselves, just so we all get to know them a bit better before they hit the West Coast!
We’ll be releasing the answers everyday here on our website so watch this space. For more details on the seminar, click HERE.
