Francis Magee - Michael
A man whose natural charisma instantly captures the attention of everyone in the room, Francis has that rare ability to entirely embody his character. Nuanced and subtle, with just enough vulnerability on display to lure the audience in, it's no surprise he was cast by master filmmaker Ken Loach to play a key part in the excellent Jimmy's Hall. Equally impressive are his turns as Yoren in Game Of Thrones, Absolon in The Bastard Executioner, Liam Taylor in Eastenders, and countless other exceptional performances throughout his career.
Phelim Drew - Fr. William
A naturally gifted entertainer, whether in front of the camera on set, treading the boards on stage, or belting out a tune at a venue. All perfect for his present role of Billy in the acclaimed, Tony award-winning musical, Once. With incredible range, Phelim has taken on a myriad of different roles over his career with great success, though is at his best when exploring the emotional turmoil of a particularly meaty dramatic part. With appearances in Irish classics such as My left Foot, The Commitments, and Into The West, Bless Me Father is in very good company.
Glynis Casson - Phylis
Another entertainment chameleon, and class act all the way, Glynis Casson is comfortable turning her hand to any aspect of the business. A masterful storyteller and theatrical performer, Glynis has created many memorable and successful theatrical performances, both in a series of one-woman shows, as well as in a number of Gilbert and Sullivan productions. Not to be pigeon-holed, she is also an accomplished harpist, and has a range of terrific film and TV credits to her name.
