Vaughan Lawlor has previously won acclaim and two IFTA Awards for his role as gang boss Nidge in the ‘Love/Hate’. He has also starred in the Charlie Haughey biopic ‘Charlie’ which aired earlier this year and also has a role in Jim Sheridan’s ‘The Secret Scripture’ which is due for release later this year.

In the film, which will be directed by Brad Furman and which will also star Diane Kruger, Cranston will play undercover agent Robert Mazur while Vaughan Lawlor will play Steve Cook, Mazur’s supervisor.

The film is slated for a 2016 release, and shooting is believed to be taking place in London, Paris and Florida.

He has also previously worked on the mini-series ‘Quirke’ alongside Gabriel Byrne and Aisling Franciosi.

In ‘The Lake’ he will star alongside recent Oscar winner JK Simmons and Charlie Bewey. The story of the film focuses on a group of Navy SEALs who attempt to solve an age-old mystery involving a treasure underneath a lake in war-torn Serbia.
