Sérierama’s gold palm of the (sweet) cracker fantasies: Eoin Macken (The Nightshift)

Lovely little write up of an interview with Eoin at Monte-Carlo Festival de Télévision.

Read the article in French.

“The Irish actor is a rare member of “the close chair school” which is consist to place the interviewer close to him for more conviviality. Which is much better than “The disinfection of hands between every interview school”. So the man is nice, charming and he is not afraid of saying that he has never seen either Emergency Room or Grey’s anatomy — Which is very brave for The Hero of a medical tv show — and he delights of the small stroll that he was able to make in Paris the last time that he came to listen to Roots there. Cool, cool, cool looks like another.

Everything goes when he swears, according to him, hospital is the worst place for having a sex affair (don’t ask me how the interview arrived there): “I feel that we would catch a disease fast. It’s full of bacteria and viruses. That seems a bad idea to me, no?”

So if Macken was a writer of a medical tv show, his doctors (males and females) wouldn’t have a sex affair during their guards.
The end of a fantasy …”

Day 4 at the festival:

“I see Eoin Macken arriving. I tell him I recognise him from The Night Shift. We talk for about 15 minutes. The actor loves France. A member of his family is married to a French guy so he knows Paris well. He speaks a little French as he studied the language for a while but then didn’t have time to anymore. A little kiss and he heads off to the bar.”

Eoin Macken and friends at Christian Blake’s Dublin premiere

Article by about Eoin’s first feauture film premiering in Dublin and somo more news about friends attending and their projects.
We’ve never witnessed a move screening, never mind premiere, at The Sugar Club… Now we have. And it has to be said, it’s such a different experience and more relaxed and casual affair to screen a movie in a theatre bar. You can have a pint sitting on the table in your booth as you enjoy the feature on the big screen. What a marvel. We’re totally converted folks…And in these tight-times of recession and credit crunches, it’s great to see young Irish independent movie makers like Eoin Macken and his contemporaries getting out there and experimenting with film media and whole production, editing, scoring and everything else that goes into making a movie, process. It’s most definitely a labour of love.

Eoin Macken as Tosh in Studs

Studs was filmed in 2006. It was Eoin’s first major role while still in his final year in college, playing next to Emmett Scanlan. The hot-tempered, unruly players of this pub league soccer team are in dire straits after having lost everything — their drive, their skills and soon, their playing field. When mysterious Walter Keegan (Brendan Gleeson – Beowulf) shows up offering to be their coach, captain Bubbles (David Wilmot – Laws of Attraction) and the rest of his loopy, obnoxious teammates are so desperate to succeed, they agree to give him the job. Drilled into the ground with a fierce discipline they have never known, the team pushes beyond their aches and pains to gain not only redemption on the field, but more importantly, their self-respect.

Eoin’s 2009 showreel showing some bits and pieces from Studs:


The making of Eoin Macken

He’s a model, film maker and photographer on a mission. Deirdre McQuillan meets the young Eoin Macken. It is September 2002, and a young UCD science student from Howth accidentally auditions for a part in Dramsoc’s production of Roddy Doyle’s The Snapper. To his surprise, he lands the role of Bertie, the sleazy Spanish chancer, but more importantly he uncovers a latent talent. From that point on, acting becomes Eoin Macken’s passion, and his life takes a very different and unexpected focus.”
