‘Love/Hate’s Eve Macklin Films ‘Brooklyn’
27 May 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
Dublin-born actress Eve Macklin has just returned from filming the highly-anticipated film ‘Brooklyn’ in Canada. Macklin is best-known for her role in season 3 of ‘Love/Hate’ as Georgina, the wife of IRA leader Dano (Jason Barry) who causes a rift between Tommy (Killian Scott) and Nidge (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) with devastating consequences.

Following smaller roles in ‘Titanic: Blood and Steel’ and ‘A Thousand Times Goodnight’ (out in cinemas now), her part in ‘Brooklyn’ marks the actress’s most notable project to date. The feature is based on Colm Toibin’s best-selling novel about a young woman who is caught between love and duty, and between her family in Ireland and new acquaintances in Brooklyn. Saoirse Ronan leads the cast.

Macklin’s character is Diana who, like Saoirse’s character, is also an emigrant. Macklin stated that working on the film “really wasn’t like work at all – it was a dream job for me, to be honest.” She also described working with Saoirse Ronan: “Saoirse is great, she’s so inspirational and has such a good head on her shoulders. She was very funny on set too.”

Other leading cast members include Domhnall Gleeson, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent. Macklin expressed that she was particularly excited to work with Carlow native Walters, saying, “I’ve been mad about her since I was nine years old.

“She plays a land lady in the house we’re all living in, so there were a lot of scenes at a kitchen table with her. She was very warm and generous; actually for the read-through in Dublin last February the two of us were on the same Aer Lingus flight from London. I saw her – and knew she was in the film obviously – but I got so star struck I couldn’t talk to her. In Dublin I told her the next day and she was laughing.”

Besides Canada, ‘Brooklyn’ was also filmed in Enniscorthy, Wexford and Dublin. The drama is directed by John Crowley (‘Intermission’) with an adapted screenplay by Nick Hornby. The feature film is produced by Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey of Wildgaze Films and co–produced by Alan Moloney in Parallel Films with finance from BBC Films and the Irish Film Board.
