Filming will take place in early December on the ‘Ros na Rún’ set of a special episode featuring Stephen Fry. The actor, comedian and presenter is currently shooting a new BBC TV series on minority languages called ‘Planet Word’ and was invited to appear in ‘Ros na Rún’ during a visit to Connemara where he was exploring the origins of the Irish language.

Stephen’s appearance in the show will be filmed in early December on a closed shoot on the ‘Ros na Rún’ set in Spiddal, Co. Galway. Hugh Farley, Series Producer of ‘Ros na Rún’, described the current atmosphere on set, saying: “There is huge excitement here on the ‘Ros na Rún’ set regarding Stephen Fry’s cameo appearance for the show. Our team of scriptwriters are currently writing Stephen a cúpla focal for his special role and we plan to film a highly entertaining scene with Stephen and some of ‘Ros na Rún’s best loved characters.“ Stephen’s storyline is being kept under close wraps by the ‘Ros na Rún’ team and the special episode will broadcast in February.

Now in its 15th year, the IFTA nominated ‘Ros na Rún’ is shot on a purpose built set in Spiddal with additional filming taking place in the local area. Each week from August to February, three episodes of the show are recorded across two studios with all scriptwriting, production and editing taking place on set. The show is co-produced by Eo Teilifis and Tyrone Productions, who are commissioned by TG4 to produce the stations flagship drama programme. Stephen Fry has already shot in Ireland, starring in Brian Gilbert’s 1997 Oscar Wilde biopic, ‘Wilde’ as the title character.
