COS­TUME DRAMA STARS FROM GLA­DYS SHEE­HAN SCHOOL Lo­cal ac­tors ap­pear in TV’s ‘The Tu­dors’

Bray People - - News - Mary FOG­A­RTY

THE TAL­ENTED chil­dren from the Gla­dys Shee­han School of Act­ing have once again been fea­tur­ing heav­ily in the film­ing of the lat­est se­ries of tele­vi­sion suc­cess, The Tu­dors, at Ard­more Stu­dios.

Han­nah Gib­bons, aged nine and Vicki Cremins, aged seven, were both se­lected for their abil­ity to cry on de­mand, ac­cord­ing to their proud teacher. ‘I’m told they are the best cry­ers in the busi­ness,’ said Gla­dys.

Other pupils of the well­known drama teacher to ap­pear in the drama are John Gre­na­han (15) and 17-year-old Hay­ley Gib­bons. All of the ac­tors were fin­ished their scenes by Tues­day.

One par­ent with a child in Gla­dys’s class said that the con­fi­dence the chil­dren get from tak­ing part in plays, films and tele­vi­sion pro­grammes is of huge ben­e­fit. ‘It is some­thing that will stay with them for the rest of their lives,’ said the mother.

Stu­dents from Gla­dys’s schools have taken part in the first two sea­sons of The Tu­dors, which have al­ready aired both in Amer­ica and on TV3, and film­ing is now un­der­way for se­ries three.
