'We always have a great laugh'

Marcus Seoige plays love rat Johnny in TG4 soap, Ros na Run. His older brother Aaron works in sales and lives in Lucan, Co Dublin.

We talked to the two brothers, who have two younger sisters Niamh and Aoife, about their relationship.

Marcus

"Our family is originally from the Aran Islands. My dad was a teacher and we spent most of the year in Athlone but always spent summers on Inis Mor.

"My brother is one of the most honest people I know. We've never had an argument that was deadly serious. He's very dependable, very hard-working and is a real family man.

"We don't get to see each other a lot now as I'm based in Galway and Aaron is in Dublin, but when we do, we pick up from where we left off.

"We can both be very focused workwise. I've maybe been a bit more rebellious -- going to art college and managing night clubs. We both have the same sense of humour and always have a great laugh."

"Every single chance we could, we used to spend summers, Easters and Christmases on Inis Mor. We had incredible freedom and knew everybody on the island.

"Marcus is a brilliant brother. He's very driven -- he never does things by halves. He's very reliable and I can always count on him.

"I'm delighted for Marcus that his acting is going well -- I've never seen him happier than in the last few years. He's definitely not like his character on Ros na Run, though."
