Roisin Gallagher is known for her previous roles in The Fall and Nowhere Special.

She told the Irish News she was excited to read the script for her latest role.

The star added: “I just felt really connected to Shiv and what she had to say and the way she had to say it- and the use of humour in the script.”

Tom Sheridan – Ciarán Hinds

Tom is Shiv’s father in the series and he is played by Ciarán Hinds.

The 69-year-old actor is known for his various roles on stage and screen.

He said of his latest role: “Tom believes he is what we call a good enough parent.”

His most notable credits include Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two, Shetland and Game of Thrones.

He is married to French-Vietnamese actress Hélène Patarot and they have a daughter together.

Bernie Sheridan – Pom Boyd

Shiv’s mum Bernie is usually found drinking and spying on her neighbour.

She is convinced he has murdered his wife and cannot help but get involved.

Bernie is played by Pom Boyd, a writer and actress known for Frank of Ireland and Vanity Fair.

Opening up about her character in The Dry, the star said: “She’s been married to Tom for I think about 40 years.

“She’s depressed, actually. She’s sad.”
