IT LOOKS like we'll be seeing a lot more of Big Brother evictee Bradley Darke on TV.

Before the 18-year-old Coraki lad was interviewed in front of 80 fans at Lismore Shopping Square yesterday, he told The Northern Star he recently shot advertisements in Sydney and would ultimately like to build a career in TV and film.

"I left (the Big Brother house) on the Monday morning and... then I got flown down to Sydney to do a photo shoot with Channel Nine and we had some talks," the ex-Trinity Catholic College student revealed.

"Last Sunday I went to Dreamworld for a meet-and-greet with the fans and on Wednesday I was flown to Sydney again and shot some promotional things for GO! and Channel Nine.

"There should be some ads coming on soon that feature me and if things keep going how they're going I could potentially be on TV more."

Bradley has been interested in TV and film ever since he started watching Batman movies as a kid.

"Whenever I used to go to my grandparents' house they'd always take me to the video shop and I'd always go and get a Batman movie," he recalled.

"When The Dark Knight (Batman film) came out, I went and saw it and was blown away. The child in me was saying, 'That's awesome', but the maturing teenager in me could also appreciate the film techniques in it.

"That's where my obsession with TV and film itself has come from."

During his time in the Big Brother house, the life-long Batman fan quoted lines from The Dark Knight on many occasions, landing himself a promotional role for the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, on behalf of Lismore Shopping Square and Birch Carroll & Coyle Lismore.

At Lismore Shopping Square on Saturday, Bradley's fans had the chance to win tickets to the first screening of the film in Lismore tonight, which Bradley will also keenly attend.
