Next up is the horror flick The Forest, starring Dublin native Eoin Macken. The 32-year-old Macken, who attended University College, Dublin, is branching out after spending several years as a model for major brands such as Abercrombie and Fitch and Ralph Lauren. The Forest is set in Japan and revolves around unexplained events which keep on happening in a spooky forest. The Forest also stars Nick Antosca, Sarah Cornwell, Natalie Dormer, and Yukiyoshi Ozawa. Macken was recently seen in the psychological thriller Christian Blake as well as the Irish TV drama Fair City. Down the road, look for Macken in the heavily-Irish romantic comedy The Callback Queens, alongside fellow Irish performers Amy-Joyce Hastings (The Tudors), Seán T. Ó
Meallaigh (Charlie), and Ger Ryan (Intermission). Producers of The Callback Queens have high hopes that an American film distribution company will be picking up the film soon.

Macken is also the star of the NBC medical drama The Night Shift, about the trials and tribulations endured by the staff at a San Antonio hospital. ♦
