article imageThat’s a wrap: Love/Hate completes filming on season 4

By Mathew Wace Peck     May 11, 2013 in Entertainment
The fourth season of Love/Hate, RTÉ’s popular Dublin-set gangland drama, has just completed production, after two months of intensive filming.
Since 2010, the series has seen its fan base steadily build up since its first season. Among its cast, actors have included Aiden Gillen (The Wire), Robert Sheehan (late of Misfits), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Killian Scott, Charlie Murphy and Aoibhinn McGinnity.
Vaughan-Lawlor will be moving straight on to the set of Mark O’Rowe’s Howie and Rookie, while, as already reported by Digital Journal Scott begins shooting Brendan Grant’s Get Up and Go in June.
Speaking on RTÉ Radio 1, Vaughan-Lawlor described something of his Love/Hate character, Nidge:
He’s […] always changing, and that’s why he’s a brilliant character to play, because the minute you think he’s one thing he changes and does something else. The minute you think he’s growing a conscience he undercuts it and negates it with something really chilling. Or, alternately, he can do something very cold and then also be very tender playing all these tones, all these colours, all these different notes [and] he doesn’t know who he is, and that’s part of his journey, I think.
Love/Hate has been picked up by Channel 5 in the UK for broadcast later this year. This isn’t the first Irish-set drama series to be acquired by the Channel 5. In 2012, the channel broadcast RTÉ’s Jack Taylor – the Galway-set gumshoe drama starring Iain Glen (Game of Thrones), in which Scott plays Cody.
The TV movies are based on the novels by Galway author Ken Bruen, and tell the story of Jack Taylor, a former garda (police officer) who takes on cases that the police are unwilling to touch.
Vaughan-Lawlor is quietly optimistic about how Love/Hate will be received in the UK. Speaking to Ireland’s Independent, the 35-year-old actor said, “It will be interesting to see how it is received because it's so close to home here. Dublin is a small city and it is examining a culture or a life that is very visible in ways in Dublin. So, touch wood, it goes well.”
