PICS: Tom Vaughan Lawlor films 'The Secret Scripture' with Rooney Mara and Jim Sheridan
Last year was a stellar year for actor Tom Vaughan Lawlor with Love/Hate, Charlie, and Howie the Rookie and 2015 has started off with a bang.
The Dublin actor has bagged a role in Jim Sheridan's next film, The Secret Scripture, which is currently filming in Ireland.
The actor was spotted on location in Kilkenny on Monday with star Rooney Mara, director Sheridan, and a host of extras.
The film adaptation of Sebastian Barry's 2008 novel features an all-star cast including Rooney, Jack Reynor, Erica Bana, Oscar-winner Vanessa Redgrave, Jeremy Irons and British actor Theo James, who is best know for The Inbetweeners.
The story is told by Roseanne, who is uncertain of her age and recounts her experiences in asylums in Ireland over 60 years.
As the story unfolds, audiences discover the why and the how of Roseanne’s incarceration and are also introduced to the second narrator, Roseanne’s psychiatrist Dr William Grene.
Reynor (22) has been cast as the love interest of Mara’s character Roseanne.
It has been reported that 46-year-old Bana will play a rebellious doctor responsible for reviewing Roseanne’s case, while James will play the local Catholic priest.
