In Pictures: The cast of RTÉ drama Charlie get to work

Aidan Gillen as Charlies Haughey and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor as PJ Mara.

THE FIRST IMAGES from the filming of RTÉ’s new political drama, Charlie, have sent us right back to the 1980s.

If the styling, the hairstyles and acting power of the billed cast is lived up to, we are in for a treat.

We can’t wait for a look at all the grotesque, unbelievable, bizarre and unprecedented events.

Before we get too excited, let’s take a look at what Aidan Gillen, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Risteárd Cooper and Peter O’Meara were up to today in Dublin:

Mara on Haughey drama: “I’m sure RTÉ will be, as usual, even handed and balanced”

Guess who’s going to play Charles Haughey in a new drama?
