The HeyUGuys Interview: Robert Sheehan talks The Messenger
By Steven Neish –
On the day of The Messenger‘s world premiere at the 69th Edinburgh’s International Film Festival, its star all stocked up on peppermint tea and sandwiches to see him through his press commitments, HeyUGuys sat down with Misfits actor Robert Sheehan in the city’s Grassmarket to talk about his latest film, a supernatural thriller about a reluctant psychic named Jack who is plagued by ghostly requests.
Jack’s latest assignment comes from Mark (Jack Fox), a deceased journalist wishing for him to pass a posthumous message onto Sarah (Tamzin Merchant). With so much media and police attention surrounding the tragedy, however, Jack can’t make contact without drawing attention to himself, and to his misunderstood abilities. That’s the last thing his sister (Lily Cole) wants, particularly as her lawyer husband is involved in the case.
The project had been around for a while before Sheehan became attached; Andrew Kirk’s script being a long-gestating passion project for director David Blair (or Overlord Blair, as Sheehan dubs him, “with the most wonderful moustache in the universe”), who had previously worked with the actor on BBC drama Accused back in 2012.
“He sent me the script and asked: was I interested in doing it? And I said: yes. I jumped two feet first in — the script was absolutely dynamite. It was really strong from the get-go, and I thought the main character — the Jack character — was the strongest written out of the page. And it just seemed ridiculous to pass it up.”
As your new Admin, I have put together all the news, interview, press and clips in here for anyone who has been missing things since Mylene’s last update in April. (Gallery update will be next) Enjoy Sheehanigans! (:
If you haven’t seen The Road Within yet, Rob’s latest film; I highly recommend you take a look! The story is a heartwarming drama about mental illness awareness. Sheehan’s performance is his best to date!
