Mark O’Brien

mark o'brien on SEA AND BE SCENE and HEARD

Broadcast Date June 12, 2019

If you’ve been following the SEA AND BE SCENE adventures over the years you’ll know that one of our absolute favourites has been NL fella Mark O’Brien. We’d catch up to him regularly back when he was playing Des on one of our favourite EAST Coast shows – REPUBLIC OF DOYLE.  When the show wrapped ya might say Mark’s career took off like a rocket – with rolls in everything from AMC’s darling HALT AND CATCH FIRE to Denis Villeneuve‘s Oscar winning ARRIVAL, to ANON and THE LAST TYCOON, to THE FRONTRUNNER to his first starring role in a feature film – Adriana Maggs latest GOALIE the story of hockey legend Terry Sawchuk. And oh my goodness does Mark deliver. So we’ll talk about his brilliant performance and so much more including his new TV series CITY ON A HILL, his forthcoming feature HAMMER, and of course his GOALIE co-star and wife Georgina Reilly – we’ll also play 1st Things First and do a little More or Less and since it’s Mr.O’Brien – we’ll have a lot of laughs.

Now for the record Mark and I connected just prior to GOALIE’s limited big city release this past March – but I held onto our chat so that we could share it when folks on the East Coast could enjoy the movie too – and now you can because just this week GOALIE dropped on iTunes where it’s available to stream and download for your viewing pleasure.  Alright now without further ado please enjoy my telephone conversation with the one and only Mark O’Brien!
