Post a thought

When you get to speak Irish, you become more at one with yourself, you kind of have a spark when you use it, and I think it`s a great dialect. When they first cast me, I was a pretty avid fan of vampire movies and Celtic mythology, so I was excited to get a chance to walk in Doyle`s shoes and have fun with it.


I`m into doing my own stunts. I learned [how to] years ago when I was doing a show for American TV called Covington Cross. I had a lot of fighting and rough stuff in that and I always want to do my own stunts -- it just looks a lot better. We`ve got really good stunt guys on the show and they teach us all this stuff. The other night I had to put on a back brace and pads and everything -- I want to participate and they`re letting me, so it`s pretty cool.


His father Murty, is a musician who played with Dickie Rock and the Miami Showband, and later The Sands with Tony Kenny.


Liked hiking, soccer, motor sports and playing the drums and guitar.
