He's come a long way from his role as underworld assassin Darren Treacy in Love/Hate.
Portlaoise actor Robert Sheehan has managed to get hired for a string of blockbuster, big budget projects since leaving the RTE gangland programme and his latest job sees him working alongside Harry Potter star Rupert Grint.
Robert is currently in Brussels getting to know the famous redhead while they get stuck into filming on Moonwalkers, a feature film directorial debut for Antoine Bardou-Jacquet that has been written by Death At A Funeral’s Dean Craig.
American acting veteran is also attached to the flick and as this picture shows, he and Robert happily sat next to one another as some of the cast and crew enjoyed a meal together over the weekend after a day’s work.
Robert has been jumping from one movie set to another lately and is no doubt delighted that his career overseas seems to be ploughing ahead full steam.
After enjoying his Hollywood breakthrough in an adaptation of author Cassandra Clare’s best-selling franchise The Mortal Instruments: The City of Bones opposite Lily Collins, the blue-eyed hunk has clearly decided he wants to show his versatility on screen to hone his talents further.
The 26-year-old recently finished working on Jet Trash, which took him to Goa, India, for several weeks at the start of the year.
He got the chance to hang out on a beach all day in between takes, as well as enjoy an executive producer role.
He’s also signed up to play Roman general Mark Antony, in a remake of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and is currently waiting for an international release date for his World War II drama Anita B, which he shot last year.
Kitted out in 1940s wardrobe, Rob plays Eli in the film, the lover of an Auschwitz survivor.
In Julias Caesar, the former Misfits actor will is expected to take on the part of one of the three men who ended up ruling ancient Rome after the emperor was assassinated.
Rob has been working constantly since his character Darren Treacy was killed off Stuart Carolan’s hit Love/Hate.
He became a household name when he starred in the first three seasons and viewers were shocked when he was shot at point blank by a vengeful Lizzie (Caoilfhionn Dunne) in the series three climax.
