JA­SON O’Mara feels blessed to have been cast in the thriller The Agency. Not only was it a meaty role, but he also met the love of his life in co-star Paige Turco (above).

‘‘Meet­ing my wife and fall­ing deeply in love at first sight and get­ting mar­ried and hav­ing my boy— I re­alised this is re­ally what life is about,’’ he says.

‘‘And it takes pres­sure off as an ac­tor as well be­cause it’s not re­ally about me any more. And I want to be present for my wife and son, want to be around. I think that’s what par­ent­ing is about, show­ing up and be­ing there and lis­ten­ing.

‘‘So that put ev­ery­thing in per­spec­tive. And though I thought there was more re­spon­si­bil­ity— more that could hold me back per­haps— things started to take off from there.’’
