The Forest UK Release Date Set for February 2016

When the first trailer landed last month, we were expecting Jason Zada’s supernatural horror to be arriving on our shores in the spring. But Icon has moved up The Forest UK release date to February, a month ahead of schedule.

A supernatural thriller set in the legendary Aokigahara Forest. A young American woman, Sara (Natalie Dormer of “Game of Thrones” and “The Hunger Games”), goes in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,” Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate.

Don’t tell Eoin Macken he’s the new doctor McDreamy – The Night Shift

The Irish actor Eoin Macken, 32 years old, plays Dr. T.C. Callahan. We met the actor at the Festival of Television of Monte-Carlo, in June. Eoin Macken talks about his character and this new medical series, which also relates to the military. Be aware, do not tell him he’s the new doctor McDreamy (Grey’s Anatomy) .. on the other hand, any resemblance with Vincent Cassel is not fortuitous.

Eoin Macken’s Birthday Project 2016

Yes! We’re doing it AGAIN … and yes, I say WE. This year I got 2 lovely ladies by the name of Helen (@ConinaUK) and Suzan (@Cherryoak) helping me out.

We will be raising money for 2 charities. It was hard to choose! Knowing Eoin’s fans we’re confidant your kindness and big heart will make it possible to raise a huge amount for both! Our first one is Sightsavers, same as last year. Why? Because over the past year I’ve kept reading up on it and I just found out it also has a special place in Helen’s heart.

I wanted the funding page up and running, but unfortunately we ran into some last minute difficulties which we’re working on now. We want to use a funding page that doesn’t take much of a fee so that most of your donation goes to the charity. We will let you know when it’s ready.

Keep checking our website page, follow us on Twitter and/or FB for updates. I promise it’ll be worth it! We’ll make it fun for everyone involved.

‪#‎EoinMackenBirthdayProject2016 kicking off! Hopefully you’ll join us. 

PS: in case you were wondering how it went last year, have a look.


Eoin Macken’s exhibit for World Sight Day

“Irish actor Eoin Macken is behind a new photography exhibition which is shining a light on Sightsavers on World Sight Day today (Thursday October 8). Macken’s images from his trip aim to focus on Sightsavers Million Miracle Appeal and will run in an exhibition in Powerscourt Town Centre, Dublin until October 15.

The Night Shift and Merlin actor is in South Africa to film the latest Resident Evil film and he travelled to Mozambique with Sightsavers to capture on camera the life-changing work that the charity is doing.”

Eoin Macken hopes season three of The Night Shift has more war games

“With an ensemble cast, here’s yet another medical drama for the viewers. The creative brainchild of Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah, The Night Shift will have dramatic emotions and fast-paced action. Eoin Macken will be seen playing the lead role, with the show being set in a military hospital. But the actor, who was last seen in the fantasy-adventure series Merlin, admits that playing the role wasn’t easy. More from him: …

How would you sum up the character of TC Callahan?
Callahan is a bit of a rogue. He’s a military doctor who served in Afghanistan and he’s a little bit of a renegade. He’s a very intelligent man, but he’s also very volatile and he does what he thinks is best.

What’s the common ground between you and him?
I think where I associate or empathise with Callahan is how he believes he’s right and he doesn’t like authority. He likes to do things his own way.”

On set pictures of Eoin Macken at Resident Evil, the final chapter

“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the sixth instalment in the horror/action series adapted from Capcom’s iconic and much-beloved survivor-horror game series.

Also on set filming scenes in the burnt-out and hellish looking set were Eoin Macken, Fraser James, William Levy and Japanese model Rola. 

With the survivors of the nefarious Umbrella company’s man-made doomsday – induced by a virus that turns people into mindless, flesh-hungry zombies – gathering in the wrecked facility, it appeared that tensions were running high as a tense stand-off at gun-point had to be defused.”
