Episode 7 - Michael Malarkey
Look who’s just crawled out of the sea - it’s only Michael bloody Malarkey, the British-American actor and singer probably best known for his role as Enzo in the television series The Vampire Diaries but also starring in loads of hit US TV shows when he’s not touring all over the world with his band.
Malarkey was born in Beirut, Lebanon to an Irish American father and a British mother of Arab/Italian origin. Malarkey had his beginnings on the London stage appearing in theatre productions such as Spring Storm and Beyond the Horizon at The National Theatre and an adaptation of The Great Gatsby and in the musical Million Dollar Quartet in the role of Elvis Presley in the West End.
He spent almost a decade living and working in the UK before landing his role in The Vampire Diaries which caused him to move back to the States to focus more on TV and Film work.
Michael currently has just finished work on his second season of TV series The Oath and through a mouthful of crisps he talks to us here about his next role in the forthcoming series Project Blue Book where he stars alongside Aidan Gillen.
Let’s hope they don’t need him back anytime soon…
