Talking ‘Leopard’ with Eoin Macken and Tom Hopper

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.

LEOPARD aka COLD, Eoin Macken’s feature film created with help from fans


“LEOPARD centres around two disconnected English brothers who are ostracised in a small village in the west of Ireland. Drawn back together by the unexpected and mysterious death of their father, they are immediately at odds until they find a girl dumped still alive in the moors. What follows is a bizarre turn of events, both beautiful and sureal, as the two brothers search for their own resolutions. At times both a love story and a tragic tale. The story is inspired by a piece in John Steinbeck’s East of Eden.” – Eoin C Macken

Before release, LEOPARD was named COLD.

Irish Highs – Eoin Macken is far more than just a pretty face.

Being named the face of an Abercrombie & Fitch campaign could be the height of a career.

But for Eoin Macken, that 2003 credit is just one of many.

The Irish actor — whose given name is pronounced Owen — plays the volatile Dr. TC Callahan on NBC’s The Night Shift, the hospital drama that just wrapped its second season. He also turned heads this spring as Herod Antipas, the ruler of Galilee during the time of Jesus, in National Geographic Channel’s Killing Jesus.

“I wanted to do it because he’s a dark character,” Macken says of the role as the Roman leader. “It’s interesting playing the human side of this person who had pressure from the Romans, his wife and the areas he was governing while trying to keep a grasp on power.”

Eoin Macken Explains The Key to Onscreen Success: Get Behind the Camera

Eoin Macken was in the middle of directing a movie atop a windswept cliff when NBC’s “The Night Shift” asked him for an audition video. Surrounded by friends, colleagues, and top-notch film equipment, he figured they could take an additional 10 minutes at the end of the day to shoot a quick scene. After promising everyone drinks were on him that night, he says, “We just shot this audition tape on the top of a cliff. And it looked quite cool!

Having booked the lead role of army vet TC Callahan on the gripping medical drama, now wrapping up shooting its second season, Macken clearly believes in the power of the self-taped audition. Sure, not everyone has access to impeccable light and sound amid sweeping vistas, but investing in something that looks well-executed is crucial.

“If you have a good camera, it makes it look a bit more professional, and someone will take the time to really look at it,” he says, before adding with emphasis, “Make sure the sound is good.” …
