"It was terrible and very difficult working under COVID protocols," he began. "I'm 65 years old and I've been to my fair share of rock concerts and I know I have lost some hearing, so trying to hear what people are saying through masks is challenging!"

The actor also expressed his thoughts on the drama which tells the story of Judge Desiato and his son, Adam, who do their best to cover up the death of a local teen who Adam tragically kills in a hit and run.

Bryan told Graham and the other guests: "It's the worst nightmare of any parent for something to happen to your child and this really gets under the skin of everybody. It's a wild ride. I just didn't think there was enough anxiety in our society today, so I'm giving you more!"

Your Honor, which is available to watch on the NOWTV Entertainment Pass, begins with detailing Adam's involvement in a hit and run while driving his late mother's car. It then transpires that the victim involved, Rocco Baxter, is the son a local mob-style gang leader, Jimmy Baxter.

Upon finding out Adam's connection to the infamous Baxter family, Michael and Adam decide to cover up the crime rather than coming clean, using Michael's experience and knowledge from working within the justice system.
