Robert Sheehan

Whatever about his mesmerizing screen presence, everyone should, if they ever get the chance, have a Zoom conversation with Robert Sheehan at least once in their lives. By turns fun, thoughtful and witty, the Portlaise-born actor steers our conversation hither and thither, from meditation and the Merry Pranksters to food poisoning and being governed by unconscious forces.

The 32-year-old's acting CV is every bit as brilliantly scattergun. There's the nimble supernatural comedy Misfits; the homegrown indie Killing Bono; the fantasy blockbuster The Mortal Instruments, and of course Love/Hate, the gangland hit into which Sheehan injected plenty of pathos.
