I tend to be cast as either the slow meditative type or the explosive agent that takes a wrecking ball to himself and others: from Brutus to Coriolanus, a senator and a general, from the wanderings of a medieval friar to the mad cap antics of a demonic sheriff.

Above all, it is the thrill of the script, a new collaboration, the next project, being taken to a place where you have not been before that draws me in.

Acting excites me and I hope it excites others, without you the audience there is no play, no movie. You watch, you immerse yourselves and witness, and together we rail against time and taste, we provoke, we reflect. I always need a partner, be it on screen or stage, a cohabitant, and a co-creator. The anticipation of the first day on set, the first day of rehearsal, the smell of a booth doing a VO, I approach it all with the belief that it all could be taken away from me, so I give it my all.

I’ve bucket loads of experience in theatre, from Russia where I trained, to Poland, and France, to Dublin to Cork. I never stand still.

The language of the body is as rich as that of the spoken word … intensely ( Mark D’Aughton) focused … sometimes fluidly, sometimes erratically that cut through to the very heart of the story…
