Brassic’s Joe Gilgun went from squatting to ‘living like Brad Pitt’ when he landed a role in the US drama Preacher.

The former Emmerdale star, 36, played an Irish vampire in four seasons of the big-budget comic book adaptation.

He said it’s so ‘strange’ getting the ‘multi-million dollar’ experience when he travels to Hollywood for work.

Joe told The Sun’s TV Mag: ‘It’s been strange. I go from living like Brad Pitt in these multimillion-dollar things in the States, to coming back to the house I was squatting in, which didn’t even have running water.

‘Everyone was going: “Joe, you’ve got a load of money, you stupid ****, you could have a house!”‘

When Joe – who has bi-polar disorder like his character Vinnie in Brassic – checked his finances he realised he’s minted.

God we hate it when that happens.

The Misfits actor revealed: ‘It turns out I’m f***ing wedged. I’ve had to buy a f***ing house and everything. I don’t want it! I’m happy feeding the pigeons.’

And it looks like things are about to get even better for Joe, what with season two of Brassic hitting our screens soon.

That’s right, Vinnie and the gang are back in May to thieve, bribe and joyride their way through life.

The second series looks set to be even funnier than its predecessor, with Vinnie going undercover after faking his own death.
