LOVE AND JOY
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.’’
