Joe McGann to join Hollyoaks cast


Liverpool-born actor Joe McGann is to join the cast of Hollyoaks later on this year.

He’ll play Tony’s estranged father, Surgeon Edward Hutchinson, in the Chester-based soap produced by Lime Pictures.

McGann has previously had recurring roles on Casualty, Night and Day, The Upper Hand and Rochliffe’s Babies. His film credits include Puckoon (2002), Food of Love (1997) and The Brylcreem Boys (1998).

McGann said: “I’m so looking forward to joining the cast of Hollyoaks. It’s such a great team on both sides of the camera, and I hope to fit in. My mum is really proud to have a surgeon in the family.”

Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood added: “Kind-hearted, sensitive, loveable Tony has in recent years has overcome every parent’s worst nightmare, a critically unwell child. He is now happily settled into married life with Diane – in fact he’s never needed a father figure less.

“But in autumn events will bring Edward Hutchinson to Hollyoaks village and we can’t wait to see the phenomenal Joe McGann bring this huge character to life. I’m thrilled to welcome him to the cast.”
