Personal Quote:

It took me two hours to be made up as Father Jack. I found it repulsive. If I was in costume, nobody would sit beside me. And I don't blame them. I had vaseline coming out of my ears as discharge, incontinence marks on my trousers, prosthetic teeth which I took out to eat, and one blind eye with an opaque lens.

Trivia:

Died on the 18th anniversary of Father Ted (1995) co-star Dermot Morgan's death. Morgan died on 28 February 1998, Kelly on the same date in 2016. Both actors died on a Sunday. See more »
