December 5, 2014: The Meeting
The news is that Kevin McCann, producer, met with Colin in London to discuss “The Rising”. He is one of the actors being considered for the lead role of Sean MacDiarmada. It would not be hard to imagine that this may be Colin’s next project.
The Audition: Sometime between the Meeting and the Announcement, the audition(s) took place. We do not know all the details, of course, but at the time of the Announcement, December 17th, 2014, this tape of Colin’s reading was published on YouTube.

The Decision: December 17, 2014: The Rising … Official Announcement *It’s official* COLIN MORGAN will star as Rebellion Leader, Seán MacDiarmada.
