Barry stopped by to tell Mairead about his criminal past...
Mairead was joined in studio by Barry Ward, one of the stars of Extraordinary - the film that has been described as "Nationwide meets Ghostbusters".
When asked to Tell Me Something I Don't Know, Barry had a pretty spectacular answer and told the story of when he was held at gunpoint by British police! As it turned out, they were on the hunt for another Barry Ward who was on their wanted list and thankfully our Barry was able to prove himself to be the innocent one.
He also told Mairead about how often himself and Aidan Gillen get mistaken for each other - something even Aidan's own brother has gotten wrong - and Mairead tried to wrangle herself an invite to the annual "staff night out" party Barry has with other Irish stars such as Cillian Murphy, and our own Dermot Whelan. Maybe she shouldn't hold her breath for that one...

The story is mental! 😮
The Irish actor, #BarryWard, was once held at gunpoint by police in London – they thought he was another Barry Ward who was on their WANTED list! @cocomairead #TellMeSomething pic.twitter.com/ODzzEoSkHY
