June Rodgers – Comedian
I am delighted to be appearing as Birdie, the new neighbour in Mrs Brown’s Boys – Season 4 – on BBC One. It wll be on RTÉ soon too.
Speaking to whattowatch.com, Brendan said, “I’ve loved having June Rodgers, as Birdie the new neighbour, in the show too. Initially I just wanted Agnes’s best friend Winnie McGoogan [played by Eilish O’Carroll] to be jealous.”
“I thought about having a one-off character or making Agnes more pally with Hillary, but then I had the idea of a new neighbour.”
“When Birdie introduces herself she comes across just as brash as Mrs Brown and Agnes thinks she’s great. Look out for the food night scene at Foley’s Bar [in episode three] where she fills a bowl with about 30 balls of ice cream!”
“June is a sweetheart and fits right in. I’m looking forward to writing for her again at Christmas.”
Here’s a flavour of some of the characters I have created over the years
