New Radio Roles For Damien in 2013? | 'Student Stories' and 'Hill Bachelors' BBC Radio 4
Permalink   
 

 

Could we be adding a new section for 'Radio' on Damien's acting credits soon?

A few of us noticed the following entry on his Spotlight profile yesterday:

"Radio, Brendan, BBC STUDENT STORIES, BBC Radio 4, Heather Larmour"



The BBC Media Centre entry for Student Stories indicates the show airs 4 January 2013 and runs for 3 episodes

 



Damien's involvement has not been officially announced, so at this stage we are being tentatively speculative. But can we just say with a voice like his, Damien Molony was made for radio.


Thank you to Spotlight where this info was sourced.

Laura : "So Damien really will be Mr Radio 4" YES!! haha!

Would it be safe to assume Damien will be performing in his native accent for this one? I did a little research on the writer, Gerald Murphy, he is an award winning Irish author and playwright. His field of work includes theatre, television and radio and his playwriting career was successfully launched by The Welcome when it was staged by the Druid Theatre Company in 2001. He received a PJ O’Connor award for His first radio play Stranger In The Night.

I think it's a pretty safe bet that this would have to be an irish accent: all in all it's a bit of a trinity college fest. Which suits me fine! I LOVE Hal's voice, but genuinely want to hear more of that beautiful Irish lilt.

It's such a shame that the radio leeds interview isn't available anymore...I listened to it a few times but would never tire of it (I also loved the fact that you could almost hear the interviewer swooning!)  So I'm determined to make sure that I don't let this one get away....I have no idea how to achieve this, but I've got a month to figure it out!

Oh the irony! Trinity College are probably kicking themselves more than ever that they turned our talented actor down for a place and beginning to see that he was entirely correct in his assessment of the most important cultural moment of 2002 (for those who have no idea what I am on about, check out this epic interview!)

Agree fifi it seems most likely, that is if the characters /students themselves are written as native Irish, the college itself is culturally diverse as is the student population so who knows!

Damien posted a very cure picture on twitter today that some talented young artist had drawn for him..are my eyes deceiving me or is that a microphone?

It is looking that way as the evidence presents itself Lau! although it is onyl a small piece, and if it is 3 'student stories' then Damien may only be on one episode of the three, but oh.... 15 minutes of Damien voice acting? after our glimpse of that with Word Theatre I am very excited indeed!

One of the main reasons I am a fan of Damien's acting is his nuanced delivery, each Hal line he uttered in Being Human series 4 was so richly textured, it is not just the voice it is the talent and interpretation behind it, the shading... *has a fangirl moment*

Delightful picture! I wonder who Damien's fellow boy actor is? There is now a danger that I'm going to start calling him 'Damien Molony, Boy Actor'.

Damn it. I forgot to compliment him on his lovely eyelashes when I left a message on Twitter (mind you, it's just as well...)

New Radio Roles For Damien in 2013? | 'Student Stories' and 'Hill Bachelors' BBC Radio 4
Permalink   
 

** UPDATE! **

Delightful news, 'New radio role for Damien' has changed to radio roles, plural - Damien's Spotlight profile now also shows the following:

2012RadioPaulieHILL BACHELORSBBC Radio 4Gemma McMullan

 

Gemma McMullen is a BBC producer based in Belfast, and there are recording studios there so this may explain Damien's tweet from Monday about working there - and they must be microphones in the picture!

So... we will be seeing lots of Damien's seriously handsome face on our tv screens next year, and hearing his seriously handsome voice on our radios!

The Hill Bachelors is is a collection of stories /sketches written by William Trevor, another Trinity College Dublin Alumni. Damien's character 'Paulie' is the protagonist in the title story.

Synopsis via Amazon >> http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hill-Bachelors-William-Trevor/dp/0140294694

thanks to Su for the heads up!
