Christopher lands TV debut
Local actor Christopher Burke Young will soon be gracing our screens as he recently secured a part in Eircom's - that is the newly-rebranded Eir's - latest advertising campaign.
A student of Olga Conway's 'Discovering Drama', Christopher auditioned for the role alongside hundreds of other budding actors but it was him who came out on top. The Crossabeg-native has since filmed his section of the commercial in Croke Park, playing the role of a 'GAA son'.
This was the 11-year-old's first professional acting job, following five years of training in the drama school. According to his mother Sheena, Christopher found the filming and auditioning very exciting.
'It was a very positive and enjoyable experience,' she said.
Olga said she was delighted with Christopher's success and is looking forward to see him on television.
