After the success of Desecrationlast year, myself and Marty Stalker will be collaborating once again on a new film called To Lose Control.
It’s probably my most ambitious role to date, as I take on the character of Royal Marine Chris Draper, an Afghanistan and Iraq war veteran who is trying to cope with P.T.S.D (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
The film explores the once controversial therapy EMDR, (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) used for dealing with P.T.S.D, and how family and close friends all become affected by it.
Plans are to have cameras rolling this summer with some locations around Northern Ireland doubling for Afghanistan. Here’s a teaser trailer of what you can expect –
Chris is an Irish actor who is based in Vancouver, B.C.
He has collaborated with the best directors in film, television and theatre in projects such as the award-winning The Magdalene Sisters (Momentum), The Boxer (Universal), Fifty Dead Men Walking (Brightlight Pictures), Good Vibrations (Revolver Films), Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie (BBC Films), 71 (Warp Films), Shooting For Socrates (New Black Films), and High-Rise (Recorded Picture Company).
On TV, Chris has played leads in The Guards (TV3) The Man Who Crossed Hitler (Hardy Pictures for BBC) The Clinic (RTE) The Family (BBC) Missing (BBC), The Titanic Enquiry (BBC), Ripper Street (BBC), Galavant (ABC) and The Fall (BBC).
Chris has worked with some of the top theatre companies in the UK and Ireland.
Additionally he is proud to have both starred in and co-produced a successful UK/Irish tour of The Wrong Man, which received critical acclaim throughout its run.
