Darren Healy's passion is stage acting because, he says, on stage "you don't get second chances" - which is poignant, because Healy's life is all about depending on second chances.

The Dublin actor, who plays madman 'The Goose' in Virgin Media's new drama Darklands, has a back story that shows how life can turn on a dime.

On a night out in June 2005, Healy was in Eamonn Doran's pub in Temple Bar when he was involved in a violent incident that ultimately left a man, Philip Bryan, dead, and Healy facing a maximum of five years in prison after admitting assault causing harm.
