Barry Keoghan graces the cover of Hot Press’ new issue, which features as extensive special feature for students.
Having first gained notoriety as cat-killer Wayne in Love/Hate, Barry Keoghan has achieved international stardom, thanks to acclaimed turns in The Killing Of A Sacred Deer and Dunkirk. As he hits screens again in famine western, Black 47, and heist drama, American Animals, the Dubliner sits down with Roe McDermott to talk about growing up in the inner-city, losing his mother at a young age, how he approaches acting, and what he’s learned from the likes of Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Cillian Murphy.
Elsewhere in the new Hot Press, we have an extensive Insider’s Guide to Student’s starting College and third level courses this September.
As part of this, Peter McGoran grills USI President Siona Cahill in the Hot Press Interview this issue. The newly elected President talks about her plans for the year ahead, her early political education, the dynamics of campaigning during the Repeal the 8th and Marriage Equality referenda, and her experience speaking in front of a Planned Parenthood conference in America. This in-depth interview gives a revealing examination of the referenda which have shaped modern Ireland, as well as an insight into the challenges facing students in this country today.
