  • While I was in college I went on a j1 visa to Hollywood, USA. It was overwhelming, When I was out there I built up some contacts with agencies that deal with the world famous Warner Brothers. For example I went for an audition for "One Tree Hill". I managed to get extra work on such shows as "Comics Unleashed" Paramount Studios. "The Late Late Show"(the episode featured Sinead O�Connor) and "Don�t Forget the Lyrics" CBS studios, LA.
  • I have done acting work on such productions here in Ireland as "Fair City", "The Clinic", two films "Gently's Last Case" and "No laughing matter� and more recently �Idir Mna� (TG4).
