Shane tells us what is ahead for Mac...
What’s been the one scene which was the most fun to film from what we’ve already seen?
Walking into a house with Nick Ward (Writer) watching porn with tissues sprayed around the room
What’s the one moment that you think defines your character most this year?
The realisation that he is now in a battle for the boys, and has lost Catherine. It tends to make him a bit aloof from the group and he throws himself into work and singledom.
Who’s the most fun to act opposite in a scene and why?
It is a really difficult question as everyone on set is so close and when a guest character comes in they throw themselves 100% into the family. The five of us are close so morning in the Beagle is great fun, but we do get tired late in the afternoon. In saying that, even after a 12 hour day together we still go out for a drink. It was great to see and work with my friend Laura again, even if under very different circumstances from our last on screen relationship, but that’s acting!
What’s been the trickiest part to film?
The Beagle is always tricky due to the technical and complex nature of how its filmed, unlike any other drama I’ve been involved with. The most satisfying was the mediation as I was getting really positive feedback from Blair who deals with those situations in his other life as a family court lawyer.
Having read the scripts/finished filming, what’s the scene are you most looking forward to/most nervous about seeing on TV?
A very nerdy but ultimately rewarding dancing scene and a beautiful ‘mancation’ to Lang’s beach
