Robert Sheehan re-enacts the opening testimony of Richard III in Toby Robson’s LA-set adaptation Dicky.
Another exciting new project to look forward to! Robert will be joining the cast of Umbrella Academy, a new show which will be widely released on Netflix. Filming will be taking place in Toronto from January 15 – July 11, according to omdc.on.ca. Press release is below.
The series is adding cast members Tom Hopper as Luther, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison, David Castañeda as Diego, Robert Sheehan as Klaus, and Aidan Gallagher as Number Five. They join previously announced cast member Ellen Page, who will play Vanya.
The live action series follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (The Umbrella Academy) – Luther, Diego, Allison, Vanya, Klaus and Number Five – as they work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.
Sheehan famously portrayed Nathan on the British series “Misfits.” He will also appear in the film “Mute” on Netflix, the second part of a planned trilogy from writer-director Duncan Jones that began with “Moon.” In December, he’ll star in Christian Rivers’ “Mortal Engines,” a sci-fi-fantasy movie co-written and produced by Peter Jackson. For television, Sheehan is currently shooting the second season of “Genius,” which chronicles the life and work of Picasso.
“The Umbrella Academy” series is based on the graphic novels of the same name created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The series will be produced by Universal Cable Productions. Steve Blackman will serve as executive producer and showrunner, with additional executive producers Bluegrass Television and Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment. Way will serve as co-executive producer. The pilot script was adapted by Jeremy Slater.
Sheehan (Mortal Instruments, Fortitude, Misfits) is Klaus, aka The Séance, who is a drug addict and lovable mess and yet, if you ask him, any day now his life is going to turn around. He’s a classic “middle child” — a disarming pleaser who is seemingly everyone’s friend but will rob you blind without thinking twice.

Now that everything is up-to-date and I have ironed out all the bugs, I now have time to update you on what you have missed in the last week, (if you aren’t on Twitter ofc *wink)
Check out the new video below (with a few laughs!) of Robert Sheehan and Joe Sangre at his ‘All Coming Down’ Exhibition at BSMT SPACE. If you live in London, why not head on over through December 1-10, 2017 and check out some cool art and you may even see the irishman himself!
Welcome back! I have (finally) finished transferring the website to my new host, but there are still a few hiccups I have to work through… I’m currently working on getting the photo gallery back up, making sure it’s on the latest stable version and everything. If you see a white page or see any errors, it will only be temporary. Moving to a new home is never a quick or seamless job, especially if you do it yourself. (Fact: RSD/RSO has had 3 moves in nearly 8 years!) Apologies if you tried to access the website in the last few days, it had some downtime, which was expected.
Anyway, Robert Sheehan Daily will be right as rain in no time. Check back later for updates. Thank you for visiting. (:
