The Love/Hate boys as you've never seen them before
What makes Peter Coonan tick? Love/Hate's Fran, Elmo and Andrew open up to Independent.ie in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video.
"It's nice to be able to get out and wear some nice clothes," Peter Coonan told Irish Independent Fashion Editor Bairbre Power when asked about his character Fran's less-than-glamorous wardrobe.
The actor, who plays Fran on the hit RTE series, joined Peter O'Meara (Andrew) and Laurence Kinlan (Elmo) for an exclusive, and might we say dapper, photoshoot for Weekend magazine.
And despite his rising star, Coonan said he's still finding his fashion feet.
"The clothes we wear in the show represent the characters we're portraying," he said.
"My father has a very dapper style and has worn a suit every day of his life since I can remember. He's the principal of a school and takes pride in his appearance.
"Robbie Sheahan used to wear some pretty interesting clothes when he'd come on set. I wouldn't be as much into fashion as maybe Robbie would be, but I think you start to find your own way as you get older. "
