The show gave a job to almost every actor in Ireland during its six year run, and many of them have gone on to big things. Look at them all, so fresh faced!

Chris played clinic staffer Brendan Davenport for the first three seasons, from 2003 to 2005. A year later, he was cast in The IT Crowd, and the rest is history.

Three years before making her mark with Atonement, nine-year-old Saoirse made her TV debut on The Clinic. And now she’s a two-time Oscar nominee. Who’d have guessed?

Oh yeah, now he’s the hunky Poldark, but in season six he arrived as the new receptionist and wannabe nightclub owner Ruairí. Would you look at him.

Weirdly, Colin is not so famous in Ireland as he is out of it – he plays Captain Hook on the wildly popular US TV show Once Upon A Time. On The Clinic, he was Conor Elliott, boyfriend of Amy Huberman’s Daisy.
