Sam Keeley lands major role

Tullamore actor Sam Keeley has landed a major role in the sequel to the critically acclaimed science-fiction horror “Monsters”, the Offaly Independent can reveal.

Speaking to the Offaly Independent Sam’s musician father Brendan Keeley said 22 year old Sam is currently in Jordan for the principal photography stage of filming on “Monsters: Dark Continent”.

“We’re absolutely delighted,” he said, reacting to his son’s latest role. “We’re just over the moon, as he is himself.”

Though Sam knew of his casting as far back as February, it was only this week the news was officially released. Best known for his roles in “What Richard Did” and the television series “Misfits”, Sam’s latest role is a real step up.

“Monsters” won four British Independent Film Awards, and it’s hoped its sequel will also be a success and as a result bring Sam to the attention of an international audience.

Sam’s first foray into the acting world was aged 19 in “The Other Side of Sleep”, a local production directed by Rebecca Daly. Winning the part of Jamie in “Misfits” followed, while other credits include “This Must Be The Place” alongside Sean Penn.

Sam’s younger brother Max is now following in that path, having taken part last weekend in the filming of “Men and Women” in Cloghan.

Sam will star in “Monster: Dark Continent” alongside cast members Johnny Harris (Welcome to the Punch) and Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones).
