11 Nov 2015

Belfast-born actor Martin McCann is not an unfamiliar face in the world of film and television, having previously worked with the likes of Richard Attenborough (Closing the Ring, 2007), Steven Spielberg (The Pacific miniseries, 2010), James Marsh (Shadow Dancer, 2012), Morgan Matthews (X+Y, 2014) and Yann Demange (’71, 2014). More often than not he’s been cast in supporting roles, but more recently, McCann has been taking centre stage. He played the lead in The Survivalist (which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and was screened at the London Film Festival 2015) and also starred in the BAFTA-winning and Oscar-nominated short, Boogaloo and Graham (2014).
