Who is Brian Milligan, who plays Terry in Marcella?
Brian is a Northern Irish actor.
He grew up in Belfast and took his first acting steps at the city’s Lagan College.
While there, he auditioned for Safe and Sound, a six-part BBC series starring Games Of Thrones actress Michelle Fairley.
Speaking about that role, he told Belfast Telegraph: “I was asked to stay behind one day in school and I thought I was in trouble as usual.
It turned out to be a letter about the auditions for Safe and Sound in the city centre.
“Then I was handed an envelope which I thought was my suspension.”
He added: “But it turned out to be a letter about the auditions for Safe and Sound in the city centre.”
He went on to get the part, and from there acted at London’s National Theatre, in a play called Sunnyside and another called Dog House.

Brian’s role in The Fall
That show followed a detective desperate to catch a serial killer hiding in plain sight.
Brian’s character, James ‘Jimmy’ Tyler, was well-known within the Loyalist community and to cops. In series one, he and his wife Liz (Séainín Brennan) received therapy to cope with the loss of Daniel, their son, who died from meningitis aged 10.
Later, Liz went into a refuge and Jimmy blamed therapist Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) for the breakdown of their marriage, suspecting him of having an affair with his wife.
Brian’s other TV show credits include The Frankenstein Chronicles, My Mother and Other Strangers, Quantico and My Left Nut.
In Marcella, Brian plays cop Terry Gilmore.
In the fourth episode in the series, Terry and fellow police officer Walsh (Tony Flynn) take Bobby Barrett (Martin McCann) to a safe house.
They put pressure on him to rat on the Maguire family in exchange for immunity. In an earlier episode, Bobby murdered a man in a nightclub in cold blood.
