Having worked as an actor for a decade and represented some of the biggest names in Irish theatre and film, few people have as full an understanding of the Irish theatre scene as Jonathan Shankey. Here he chats about his time at Players in Trinity and the exceptional group of that time, his time studying in America, playing a chicken in Conall Morrison’s landmark production of Tarry Flynn at the Abbey, his role in Kilkenny’s Cat Laughs festival, joining Lisa Richards and being at the heart of Colin Farrell’s international success, and his advice to actors on how to get the best out of their relationship with their agent.
