Added DiffLines:

* {{RealLife/Mean Character Nice Actor}}: Father Jack, as loud and as obnoxious as he is, is played by Frank Kelly... who couldn't be any different from the character he plays. Kelly joined {{Series/Emmerdale}} but left after five months, because he missed being with his wife and children in Ireland too much to stay. He's also donated money to various drama projects which are struggling, and asks for nothing back in return.
