Biography

Irish actor Robert Sheehan experienced a rapid rise to stardom in the early millennium thanks to rebellious roles in English and Irish film and television productions like "Red Riding" (Channel 4 2009) and "Misfits" (Channel 4 2009-2013), which led to a feature role in the would-be blockbuster "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" (2013). Sheehan began acting on screen as a teenager in 2003, but it would be six more years before he drew favorable notices for his work in "Red Riding" and the young adult favorite "Misfits." Newly minted as a star, Sheehan worked steadily, if not always successfully, on TV and in features, but the failure of his big screen efforts "Season of the Witch" (2011) and "City of Bones" kept him from vaulting to international fame. Sheehan's willingness to mix big-budget projects with small, more intimate dramas seemed to indicate that his full-fledged breakout was only a project away.
