Jack Reynor's life transformed by blockbuster role

IT was a surreal homecoming for actor Jack Reynor as he walked the blue carpet at the Irish premiere of 'Transformers 4: Age of Extinction' at Dublin's Savoy Cinema.
A former Belvedere College student, Reynor recalled wandering down O'Connell Street dreaming of a career as an actor.
"I used to walk down this street every day after school and just hope someday I would be able to come here and launch a film at this theatre," he told the Irish Independent.
"And now my face is plastered all over the walls – a lot has happened in four years. It's a really surreal experience."
Reynor has spent the past several weeks travelling the world with his fiancee Madeline Mulqueen as part of the promotional tour for Michael Bay's blockbuster.
The action-packed film attracted plenty of movie buffs with 2FM's Lottie Ryan, actor Jay Duffy, Aoibhin Garrihy and 'Love/ Hate' actor Laurence Kinlan all in attendance.
US-based Dubliner Glenn Keogh also features in the fourth instalment of the 'Transformers' franchise.
