Derren Brown insists Steve Brosnan 'not an actor'
DERREN Brown has hit back at claims his latest TV stunt was faked using an actor.
The subject of the his latest Channel 4 show ‘Apocalypse’ was introduced as a 21-year-old from Buckinghamshire called Steve Brosnan (pictured below - image from 4oD).
According to his Facebook profile, Steve is from Chalfont St Peter and went to school at Chalfonts Community College.
In part one of the show, aired on Friday night, Steve was apparently convinced that the world had been hit by a meteor shower and taken over by zombies.
But after the show aired on Friday, his Twitter account @broscaconstricta was reportedly linked to a Steve Brosnan from Buckinghamshire who it has now been claimed is a member of professional actors network Casting Call Pro.
And as fans took to the internet to point out the link and voice their disappointment, the Twitter account name was reportedly changed several times before becoming locked.
In the show Steve is seemingly convinced he is one of just a few survivors of an apocalyptic disaster, before learning his family is also safe.
Derren Brown has since tweeted: “Conspiracy theory flying around that Steven is an actor, cos he looks like a guy in a noodle ad. I NEVER EVER fake stunts with actors.
“Plus his whole family/friends would have to be actors too. And all REAL family/friends quietly killed...”
A Channel 4 spokesman has said: "Steven is not and has never been a professional actor. He was chosen purely because he fitted the characteristics needed for the show."
Do you know Steve Brosnan? What do you think?
