Today Vanity Fair Italy posted a little interview with Eoin Macken on the net. Google translation is cool, but there’s nothing like a true Italian girl translating it for all you Eoin fans. So I asked Gloria Pavanelli, who is next to an Eoin Macken fan a huge Aneurin Barnard fan, to help me out. I got the translation send to me the same night. She’s awesome! Give her a follow on Twitter @ABarnardITA!
Eoin Macken: “Britney Spears, marry me ‘
“Sex symbol? I’m not sure to satisfy the meaning. “Don’t be angry: the new McDreamy seems to be honest during the interview. Even when he says to be single because “no woman compares to her “.
“Do they say I’m the new Patrick Dempsey, truly?” When I ask him if he’s ready to replace the late Dr. Shepherd with his The Night Shift’s TC Callahan, he answers with laughter, pretending he never thought about it a year ago.
Eoin Macken, Irish, 32, might just be a more muscular and instinctive version of Dempsey. His Dr. Callahan, a past in the army and a post-traumatic stress disorder, works in the fictional San Antonio Medical Center and is the sex symbol of The Night Shift (graveyard shift), which is back for a second season on Infinity, the TV series and movies’ streaming service on demand.
Eoin’s curriculum (pronounced as Owen) is an interesting mix of contradictions. He started his career as a model (Abercrombie & Fitch, Ralph Lauren), has a degree in Psychology, wrote a novel and filmed a documentary about fashion photographers (The Fashion of Modelling).
Aren’t you afraid to remain imprisoned in a sexy doctor’s cliché?
“TC, with his contradictions, is more than just a sexy doctor. Leader in his work, messed up in his personal life, obsessed with the need to do the right thing. “
Your mother was a nurse, have you ever asked her for advice?
“More than that, as she teaches at a school for nurses now. Staying very close to her, I basically did a course on how to interact with patients. ” (…)
You do know you’re very funny on Twitter, don’t you?
“The greatest thing about Twitter is that I can talk to friends and, at the same time, with an Indonesian fan. At the beginning I wondered why they follow me. I do a fun job, the least I can do is give some fun to others. “
It seems like you have two obsessions: Roberto Baggio and Britney Spears.
“When I was a kid – the unforgettable memories age – Baggio was the strongest. Philosophical, deep. Cool.”
“Who’s not obsessed with her? No woman compares to her. “
Is Eoin Macken single?
“Yes, I’m single. But just because I’m waiting for Britney.
