BIG BREAK:

Left drama school at 20 and went more or less straight into the role of Damien Day in `Drop The Dead Donkey’ where he has been ever since. However, his role as Fr Peter Clifford in `Ballykissangel’ has catapulted him into the limelight

SCHOOL:

Trained at the Central School Speech/Drama

INTERESTS:

Cricket, cinema, especially British films, mainly Carry On films. Is also a football fan, supporting Middlesbrough. He also collects famous autographs, preferring the classic Hollywood actors

MISCELLANEOUS:

Says that the hardest scene he has ever had to film, was Assumpta’s (alleged!) death scene in Ballykissangel. He found it very disturbing to see his real life girlfriend lying on a mortuary slab. He is becoming notorious for his exceedingly dapper dress sense ie) never wear anything conservative when you can get away with velvet! He owns in the region of 40 suits which he wears at every opportunity. However, regardless of which one he chooses, his lapel is always adorned with the same two items – a small badge professing his dedication to Boro and a silver Claddagh brooch, a gift from Dervla. Like his weak-willed fiancee, he has also re-taken up smoking!
