Kin cast revealed for new drama on BBC One

Irish drama Kin has arrived on BBC One – here’s a full run down of who’s on the cast.

The eight part series tells the story of a tragic event that leads a family into a fierce gangland conflict against a formidable international cartel.

This struggle pits the Kinsellas, a local crime family, against the expansive and powerful Cunningham cartel, resembling a modern-day David and Goliath scenario. Despite being outmatched in numbers, funding, and firepower, the Kinsellas are forced to retreat to their stronghold in Dublin.


As they face the downfall of their businesses and relentless attacks on their family and allies, they rely on their greatest strength: the indomitable ties of blood and family unity that the cartel lacks. This deep bond of kinship is their key in this seemingly unwinnable war.
