It’s a heart-wrenching little story shot in mid December of 2019, with a few to being released for the 2020 Christmas Season.

I enjoyed making this one. My character was a far cry from the evil one I played in the short film “The Cull” (which is linked to from my “Acting” page)

In typical fashion, my last name is again misspelled in the credits. Sometimes I wonder if I should just change my “stage name” to match the way everyone misspells it.

I enjoyed shooting this film. The entire shoot was very different than others I’ve done. We didn’t have any studio sets, it was on location.

I star as Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

I will be playing Ebenezer Scrooge in a student production of A Christmas Carol, on the 8th of Februrary 2020 at 8pm.

This student production is for the diploma and performance courses that I’m taking with StageScreen Classes, led by Conor Armstrong Sanfey.

The best way to get tickets is to contact StageScreen Classes directly. Contact details are in the poster image.

“Faith” – Shooting on Saturday

Principal Photography for the short film Faith is this Saturday!

Rehearsals for Faith have gone well, and we’re shooting on Saturday in Bray.

I’m looking forward to getting into costume on-set to move from rehearsal & blocking to performance!

My co-star and I were truly able to get into our characters and explore them!
