It’s that time of the year again. Press day. What will The Night Shift Season 4 bring? Find out.
PS anyone else loving the hair? 😉
Watch all the way to the end 😉
Actor Eoin Macken, who plays a doctor on the NBC series The Night Shift, actually plays a guy named “Doc” in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Macken and the talented ensemble behind The Night Shift has steadily cultivated a loyal fan base, and now the actor is continuing to expand his creative horizons in the film arena.
As the Resident Evil movies reach their climax with The Final Chapter, the action returns to Raccoon City for a final battle with Wesker and the forces of the Umbrella Corporation. Eoin Macken plays Doc, a new addition to the franchise, who is leading a band of survivors in Raccoon City alongside Claire Redfield.
Screen Rant spoke with Macken at the press day for The Final Chapter about his time as a kid playing the original Resident Evil video game, how Doc fits into the franchise, and his hardest scene to shoot.
So, this is the final chapter of Resident Evil. How familiar were you with the video games, or the film franchise in general before coming into this?
Eoin Macken: “To be honest, I’ve watched all the films, and I used to play the games as a kid. Those games used to scare the s**t out of me. Dude, I used to go across to my buddy’s house, he lived—in American terms—I guess like a couple of blocks away. And I’d go over there and we’d start playing I guess the very first game, and you’d be going through that bloody house, and you just don’t wanna go through the next doors cause you just know what’s gonna happen, and it was horrific. And then the music, it was the music from the first one that just – It would build. Dude. And then I’d have to walk home. And so I used to hate that, I used to hate it. So yeah, Resident Evil was – it’s always had something in my belly.”
Originally inspired by a conversation the two had on a lunch break, the film was written, directed, and produced by Macken himself, and takes notes from John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men as it weaves its intriguing tale about two estranged brothers (Macken and Hopper) and their mysterious mother.
Four years later, Macken and Hopper are celebrating the American release of Leopard and were kind enough to join Pam for a very special episode of Hype Podcast. Listen in as in we take a look back on what it took to make Leopard a reality, reminisce on the process behind some of the most memorable scenes in the film, and much more.
We’re talking to Macken while he is promoting Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and our conversation turns to the BBC drama, something that he remembers very fondly. “Merlin has been a big part of my life the last few years. I owe a lot to the fans, they are really, genuinely, an awesome group of people.”
While we were talking, Macken recounts his version of events after the action leave Sir Gwaine, supposedly perished. “I actually don’t think he died.” He tells us, “I think it’s more Percival had to go and do this thing and Gwaine was just unconscious, he would have woken up and everything was fine. I mean, obviously, he didn’t appear in the court after that so in my opinion he woke up with no memory and went on his travels again. He woke up with this really sore head and went ‘I have a hangover’ and has forgotten the last four years of being a knight or some bullshit then woke up and went for a drink.”
It doesn’t take long for Macken to get excited about the idea, and when the subject of returning to Merlin is raised (should that ‘six series and a movie’ rumour ever actually come to light… we live on in hope). “Sorry, we should actually make a short film of that!” he exclaims, cutting off the question of whether or not he would come back. “I’d do that! Gwaine just rocking up to a bar and has no recollection… thinks it’s all a big dream.”
“Do you know what,” he teases, “I have a bit of free time in February and March I might just have to go and shoot that. That actually could be a lot of fun.” It’s difficult not to get excited about the prospect, and it’s not just us who seem to be. “You’ve kind of given me an idea now. I’m kind of interested in doing that. You shouldn’t have done that to me just before Christmas.”
