With the airing of new BBC1 comedy Soft Border Patrol next weekend (Friday 2 March 2018) this is probably the most excited – along with the most nervous! – I’ve been about a show on which I have worked. I play one of the leads in the mockumentary (produced by The Comedy Unit), about how aContinue reading “The seamless, frictionless life of a Soft Border Patrol…”

Fractured City is to be screened at the QFT as part of a charity event, http://www.geraldinesjourney.com, this Saturday at 2pm. I worked on this last year with an amazing cast that included film industry stalwarts like Gerard McSorley & Martin McCann. I met director Sean Murray after seeing his first short film ‘Coco’. After sharingContinue reading “Fractured City…”
Early this year I had the pleasure of working on the final season of one of the most exciting TV shows to be produced here, The Fall. I play the role of Michael Ritchie opposite Jamie Dornan, Gillian Anderson and Krister Henriksson. It’s due out later this year, I can’t say too much more other than it’s going to beContinue reading “This Fall…”
It’s been a long time since I updated my blog, but I am thankful to report that it’s because I have been busy! And on Sunday 17th of January, I’m going to be starring in episode 5 (Dwarves vs Giants) of hit comedy/musical Galavant, which airs on ABC and is now in its second season. Although GalavantContinue reading “Galavant”
Working on Halo Nightfall was definitely a job of ‘firsts’ for me. I got my first experience on a television sci-fi show, first time working with a green screen and first time working on a spaceship! (Yes, you read that right – a spaceship!) It was very, very different from anything I’ve ever worked on before. I had to have greatContinue reading “HALO: NIGHTFALL…”
A Star Studded High-Rise
As the first images were released for Ben Wheatleys’ screen adaptation of the JJ Ballard novel High-Rise I thought I’d share a bit about my time working on it. It was probably the most star studded job I’ve ever worked on. I was so glad my wardrobe fitting was before I actually shot something, asContinue reading “A Star Studded High-Rise”
Shooting for Socrates is Here!
This week sees the UK premiere of Shooting For Socrates at the Belfast Film Festival before it goes on general release on 12 June. It’s going to be an exciting night for me personally – not only for the film – but, as a football fan, at the prospect of meeting some of the players who areContinue reading “Shooting for Socrates is Here!”
My blog has been a bit neglected of late, but I’m delighted to have been busy in the meantime on some great new projects, all of which I’ll write about in the coming weeks. The world premiere of Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie in Dublin was great fun and I really enjoyed meeting up with the castContinue reading “An update”
Warp Films – 71
Recently I finished work on Warp Films’ new feature 71, directed by Yann Demange. The 1971-set film follows a teenage British soldier who has to navigate the dangerous Belfast streets after he is accidentally left behind by his unit. The original screenplay is written by the award-winning playwright Gregory Burke. I was delighted to playContinue reading “Warp Films – 71”
Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie
Over the last month I’ve been working away on one of the funniest and most brilliant experiences I have ever had the pleasure of working on during my career. Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie was great. When talking to the BBC website Brendan O’Carroll revealed his joy at filming the show in Dublin: ‘Following the international successContinue reading “Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie”
