What are the best and worst things about your job?

The best thing is that you’re living your dream. It doesn’t feel like a job. It’s not 9-5, and it’s what I’ve always wanted to do. I get to put on the clothes – metaphorically speaking – of all these different people and live another life. That’s what it’s all about to me, inhabiting this space that’s constantly different. The worst things? Hmm, that’s hard! I guess it’s the unpredictability. When you finish a job there’s the inevitable comedown when you’re like, what now! Also I never feel completely satisfied with a job I’ve just done which can be frustrating. But there’s not that many negatives!

Colin Morgan is a brilliant young actor. His approach to the role of ‘Cathal’ was to research the part meticulously and then to inhabit the role profoundly. We did some work with the Aids Alliance in Dublin advising Colin on the technical realities of drug use and misuse.“ - Director Darragh Byrne
