IFTA Film & Drama Awards 2015

...over the hills and far away.Ciarán attended the 12th IFTA Awards at Dublin’s Mansion House on Sunday May 24. The event, presented by Sean Bean (Game of Thrones,Sharpe), saw filmmaker Jim Sheridan receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, a tribute to his highly decorated and illustrious career that spans 30 years with credits that include In the Name of the Father, The Field and Some Mother’s Son (where Ciarán played Sinn Fein spokesman Danny Boyle).

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.

“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.
