Killian Scott lands roles for two BBC series

LOVE/Hate’s Killian Scott is set to star in two BBC series, in what will be his biggest roles to date.

The Dublin-born actor has already made a name for himself in Ireland by taking on the role of Tommy in the hit gangland crime series.

Now the 29-year-old will take a huge step forward in his career after landing himself roles in BBC's new comedy series Siblings as well as its award-winning drama Call the Midwife.

The BBC have commissioned six episodes of Siblings, which follows the story of the world’s worst brother and sister and the trail of chaos that they leave behind. The first season is expected to air later this year.

He will also join the cast of Call the Midwife, starring Miranda Hart, for its fourth season, and will begin filming in the coming weeks.

The drama – in which Scott will play character Declan - is focused on a group of nurse midwives working in the East End of London in the 1950s and shooting has begun for the upcoming series. It will be broadcast next year.

A Christmas special has been confirmed but it is not yet known if Scott will be included in the December line-up.

As well as gracing TV screens, the London-based actor is also set to feature on the silver screen.

He is scheduled to shoot Adam Smith's Trespass Against Us, alongside Michael Fassbender, having previously had a minor role opposite Aidan Gillen, Chris O'Dowd and Brendan Gleeson in the dark comedy, Calvary.
