Shetland: season 3 on BBC One

Wonderfully two-faced Ciaran HindsWhen a young man disappears on a ferry crossing and a small boy ends up in intensive care, DI Jimmy Perez and his team become convinced the two events are connected.

As the investigation pulls Perez and his team deeper into the secrets of the local community, prime suspect Michael Maguire carries out his own inquiry, with dire consequences.

The first episode aired on BBC ONE on Friday 15 January.


Ciarán in a winning short movie

Vincent Gallagher's Love is a Sting has been distinguished with two awards at the Clones Film Festival and the Richard Harris International Film Festival.

This experimental short film, narrated by Ciarán and played by Donegal actor Seán T. Ó Meallaigh, tells the story of the attempts of a hyper-intelligent mosquito to communicate with a struggling children's book writer.

According to producer Ian Hunt Duffy, Ciarán was the final piece of this ambitious puzzle: "We really felt the story deserved a great actor to narrate it, so we were delighted to get Ciará Hinds on board. He just brings such gravitas and emotion to the piece”.


Ciarán will shine again on Broadway next Winter

Ciarán will play Governor Thomas Danforth in Broadway Revival of Arthur Miller's Witch-Hunt Drama The Crucible.

Rehearsals will begin in January 2016 with a first preview currently scheduled for February 29 at a venue yet to be announced. It will open April 7 and continue through July 17.


Martin Scorsese's Silence will have a Northern Irish cast

Ciarán will star alongside his longtime friend Liam Neeson in Silence, Martin Scorsese's pet project for almost two decades, a story about the challenges faced by Jesuit missionaries attempting to spread Christianity in 17th century Japan. Based on Shusaku Endo's novel, it's all about God's silence in the face of human suffering, according to director Martin Scorsese.

"The subject matter is very close to my heart. I've been working on it since I first read the book in 1989", Scorsese said. "It deals with spiritual matters in a concrete, physical world; a world where invariably the worst of human nature is revealed."

Ciarán will play Alessandro Valignano (1539-1606), the Italian missionary who oversaw Jesuit activity in Asia for over thirty years. Silence is expected to be released in time for the 2016 awards season.
