Former Love Hate actor Brian Gleeson stated that the new RTÉ Drama “Taken Down” portrays both the best and worst parts of new Ireland.
“The subject matter itself is something that we all know about but not that well. So it was important for lots of different reasons” stated Gleeson. Gleeson also added that the cast is a lot more different to that of Love Hate, “What’s great about the writing is that the characters aren’t one-dimensional. It’s the most diverse cast I’ve ever been a part of and I really hope people like it.”
