ROBERT SHEEHAN .....
I just had to let it soak in with a temporary pause. Cassandra Clare, evil author extraordinaire (as she taunted us for a bit about the fact that we had a Simon) was the one to break the news to the fans. I'll say I had a little hand in helping out with this since I started the #WeWantSimon trend. Luckily, I have Katie, Alyssa, Tita and Natalie along with my co-bloggers Satin, Shannon and Katheryn to spread the word around. And it spread FAST!! Thanks to all the fans that helped!
We managed to get the trend to at least #2 in the world. It might have gotten to #1 but I'm not positive.
Now back to Robert. He's most popular for his role as Nathan Young on the UK show Misfits. He was on 14 episodes, and Cassie loves the show. Most Americans will be introduced to this Irish actor. He is 24. He is known for his role on the TV show Love/Hate, as well as the 2009 film Cherrybomb alongside Rupert Grint. He has also co-starred in the film Killing Bono, alongside Ben Barnes, as Ivan McCormick. He recently starred in John Crowley's production of J. M. Synge's comic play The Playboy of the Western World at the Old Vic Theatre, London, which finished in November, 2011.
He has three IFTA nominations and one BAFTA nomination. He also shared a BAFTA award with the cast of Misfits.
Here's what Cassie had to say:
So remember when I said we wouldn’t have a Simon till July for Reasons?
The Reasons were that the actors up for Simon had to test with Jamie and Lily in Toronto to see how the chemistry worked. When I talked to Jamie and Lily yesterday it was about who we thought was the absolute best, the most Simon-y Simon, and fortunately we all agreed.
I'll have much more about the actor and some of my thoughts on the shows he's been in once I've had a chance to watch them! First up, Misfits!!
