Tribute to Sharron Byrne

It was with sadness and shock I learned of the passing of Sharron Byrne this past weekend, who featured wonderfully in the 2014 run of Sitting Up for Michael in the White Bear. When I was having casting difficulties, she ably stepped up to the female lead and won plaudits for her performances from all sectors of the audience (one reviewer was taken aback when he heard her speak in her natural London accent, as he had assumed that the northern Irish accent she had adopted was her own). And every evening after the performance we would stay in the front bar until the wee hours celebrating or consoling the night's performance. She will be missed.

On Set: The Lep

The Lep Pure Gold is a fantastic tragic mythology film I'm involved set during the devastating Irish famine. It's merges the legend of Ireland's pernicious leprechauns and one man's desperation to feed his family in the most adverse conditions.

I play the ruthless sheriff, pressuring John (Edwin Mullane) into paying up his meagre earnings as he tries to provide for his sick child and wife (Aoife Honohan).

Written and directed by Rik Gordon, this is a great project to be part of and will be featuring in festivals worldwide when it's completed. I can't wait.

On Set: Continental Breakfast

I was recently cast in Alec Liddle's NI Screen-funded short, Continental Breakfast, as the cuckolded husband of Charlotte McCurry's Ella. It was a bit of a change of pace for me from recent productions as it was much more grounded than some of the projects I've been involved in (no rabbit-obsessed killers, or blood-thirsty narrators). Also starring Abe Smyth, the filming was done in a fantastic little house on the Malone Road. I've already seen a  rough edit and it's looking good, so I can't wait to see the finished project.

Here's some of the pictures I managed to take on set.

Have you heard the big news!
