Rory Cowan was going to be a banker. There was one problem. He didn't want to. Excelling in maths, Rory deliberately failed his maths exams in order to rule that out and follow his dreams of going into showbiz. Starting in EMI he made his way up to Marketing Manager for Ireland, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Freddie Mercury, Bruce Dickinson and many many more. He met Brendan O'Carroll in 1991 and became his publicist. They worked the circuits for many years before Brendon thought of Mrs Brown as a character. The rest, as they say, is history. Listen and watch this amazing interview with the hilarious and lovely Rory Cowan, who plays the outrageously camp Rory Brown, much loved son of Mrs Brown.
