The show is filmed as a fly on the wall “mockumentary” and follows Roy, an 11-year-old cartoon boy who lives in Ballyfermot, west Dublin, with a real family and real friends.
Roy features Simon Delaney as Roy’s taxi-driver dad, who stars alongside Cathy Belton, Martha Byrne, Scott Graham and Mark Lambert.
The series and the character of Roy really seems to resonate with viewers in the UK, Ireland and beyond. One of the reasons for this is that we’re able to have so much fun with his physicality and really exaggerate his reactions and expressions.
Roy is a true fish out of water but he doesn’t see himself that way.
