Chesapeake Shores fans will remember the show came to a happy end for the entire O’Brien family, as they welcomed a new member.
During the finale, Kevin and his wife Sarah Mercer (Jessica Sipos) welcomed their firstborn son to the beloved family.
During an interview with Express.co.uk, Brendan reflected on his time in the show and provided a friendship update.
He shared: “There’s certain cast members that I mean, you do six seasons of a TV show you become close and there are some absolutely amazing people.”
During the interview, Brendan also paid a touching tribute to his former co-star Jessica and praised the actress’ unique attributes.
He stated: “Jessica’s the greatest, if anyone gets an opportunity to meet her or work with her do it she’s the greatest.
“I adore her, we have a lot in common she’s married with two young kids and from day one, within two minutes of meeting each other, we were laughing.
“I was like, ‘okay, she’s cool this is gonna go well’, and then we just became great friends.”
Brenden continued: “We never had an argument, we never had a point on set where we had to discuss what the scene was about.
“It just flowed and we respected each other and I absolutely adore her.”
Although Chesapeake Shores may have come to an end, fans will be able to see more of Brendan on GREAT! Romance as Valentine in the Vineyard and A Dash of Love return to screens.
Unlike his role as an executive chef in A Dash of Romance, Brendan stars as Nate DeLuca in The Vineyard movie series.
