Patrick Bergin Wraps Irish Feature ‘The Minnitts of Anabeg’

Patrick Bergin has wrapped filming on a five-week shoot in Tipperary on feature film ‘The Minnits of Anabeg’.

The ‘Sleeping with the Enemy’ star is playing Lord Goode in the film based on the true lives of the Minnitt family from Tipperary. The Minnitts, who lived in Anabeg House in Nenagh, were a wealthy family who owned more than 1,000 acres of land in the late 19th century.

The feature is currently in post-production and will resume shooting for one week in the winter months.

Frank McGrath plays Joshua Minnitt, an English Justice of Peace during the Irish potato famine who was disowned by his father after marrying a Catholic girl. Lucy Jubb plays the role of his wife, with a number of Irish actors playing parts.

Alan Brown of Krown Films has written, directed and produced the feature, which picked up the award for Best Script at the International Film Festival Ireland.

Additional cast and crew roles were filled by local industry members from Tipperary. Director Brown said: “This was very much a production where the town came out to help make a feature film, taking part as extras, speaking parts, crew, location services, and costumes.”

Bergin, who shot to fame in 1991 when he starred alongside Julia Roberts in Joshua Ruben’s intense thriller ‘Sleeping with the Enemy’, has taken on a number of roles in his native country in recent years, including award-winning feature ‘Songs for Amy’ and short ‘Angel’.

Additional post-production is expected to be complete in March 2013.
