ShowBizIreland.com got a chance to chat with
Irish American nice guy Aiden Quinn who is
here in Dublin filming Evelyn with Pierce
Did you want to come back to Ireland to make a movie
or was it just a lucky break for you to come back
to your family's birthplace and work with Pierce at
the same time?
"I can't stay away from Ireland. Especially when
you get something as attractive as this. It's great
to be back here and in a typical Irish way, my sister
has a small part in this movie and I didn't even know
it. The director alerted me to that when he found
out she was my sister. So, that's another really great
reason to work here again."
Filming has been going on around Dublin but have you
had the chance to travel back to Birr where your parents
"I have been down to where my family are from
in County Offaly and been out in Dublin quite a bit.
But, I want to go down to some of my other favorite
places like Clare and Donegal over the next few weekends.
My sister still lives here in Drumherr in County Leitrim.
My parents come back quite often and my older brother
works here a lot."
Q: And do you bring your own daughters here
to show them were your side of the family comes from?
"My 12 year old loves it here and they are even
getting their own Irish passports."
Q: Is their any Irish at all in your wife's
family and when did you guys met?
"No, my wife is a Sicilian American and we met
in a New York restaurant 17 years ago."
How about a full time move back to Ireland with the
kids to set up here for good?
"I would love to but the wife would never let
us. However with what's been going on in the states
you never know. At the moment all her family is in
New York and the New York area so it's hard for me
not to be in New York now. I think she might start
to consider moving after the recent events."
Q: You have worked with the likes of Liam
Neeson and now Pierce. Is there anyone else you
would love to work with?
"I have great occasion to work with some great
actors so far. Meryl Streep was just incredible
to work with but at the same time I've worked with
DeNiro and it's the same every time he is just
incredible. I would live to work with Brando
before he dies.
What's next directing or producing for you?
"Absolutely, but the business is a strange one.
I was once offered a part as a director but the studio
said no. The business is almost run by the studio
heads now. And that's even with the casting. You nearly
get a list of lead roles now and the studio say who
gets them. But, there are roles out there that I am
struggling to get a crack at.
Q: What is your favorite film so far?
"This My Father. I love the movie and
how it turned out. Without a doubt."
