Linda Gray mothers the male Dallas stars

Dallas star Linda Gray is compelled to mother the male cast members of the revived '80s classic as they are so badly behaved on set.

The actress, who plays Sue Ellen in the show, says her veteran co-stars Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy need to be kept in line in order to set a good example for the programme's younger stars.

She tells Britain's Daily Express, "They are always fooling around. When Patrick, Larry and I get together chaos, magic and all kinds of fun ensues. They are very bad boys all the time and that's why I love it. I really love it. The boys are behaving a little better now because they want to set a good example to the younger ones but wait until next season. I cringe (because) they call me 'mum' because I have to look after them but they are my boys. I constantly take care of them."
