Nightflyers – Jodie Turner-Smith & Eoin Macken interviews

Jodie Smith, Eoin Macken and a few of the other cast and showrunners attended San Diego Comic Con this year.

“NIGHTFLYERS follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain – in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other – and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.”

Nightflyers is based on G.R.R. Martin’s 1980 novella, which was adapted into a film in 1987. Coming this fall on SyFy and Netflix.

Eoin Macken in VULKAN Magazine

 

Quadruple threat, Eoin Macken, has done it all; from modeling, acting, writing, to directing, he definitely knows the recipe for success. He’s starred in box office hit, “Resident Evil,” and you can find him playing the troubled Dr. TC Callahan on “The Night Shift.” He took some time to chat with VULKAN, opening up about his writing inspiration, favourite monologue, character preparation, his upcoming role in a romantic comedy, and of course, much more!

You’re an actor, model, author, and director! Which brings you the most joy and why?  

Honestly, I can’t answer that. All throughout my childhood I simply wanted to be involved in stories, from reading adventures on a page, and I never thought it was possible. I’ve worked hard within acting, writing, and film making to create stories and ideas, and bringing somebody else’s character to life gives me as much joy as birthing my own. I used to be egotistical about it through insecurity, but I’ve been lucky to meet some amazing artists and working with people is a beautiful experience for me.

When creating characters for your novels or scripts, where do you draw inspiration? How do you ensure they are relatable and engaging?

I go through phases of writing blocks of poetry where I observe people on the street, or the subway around me, and I imagine where they’ve come from and why. So every time I write a character I like, I need to have some sort of visual idea of who that person is, what they look and smell and feel like. For me, acting is about observing and reacting, and writing is similar; it’s about being aware of this person that I’ve created and letting them exist fully in my mind.
