ROBERT SHEEHAN (Tom Natsworthy) is one of the most intriguing young actors working today. Over the next year, his versatility and range will be evident in several highly anticipated film and television projects. On May 4, Sheehan starred opposite David Tennant in Dean Devlin's thriller Bad Samaritan.

In 2016, Sheehan produced and starred in Charles Henri Belleville's independent feature Jet Trash as a hedonistic backpacker opposite Sofia Boutella, Osy Ikhile and Craig Parkinson. Sheehan's filmography also includes David Blair's The Messenger with Joely Richardson, Moonwalkers with Rupert Grint and Ron Perlman, and Gren Wells' The Road Within, in which he stars as a man with Tourette syndrome opposite Dev Patel and Zoe Kravitz. Additional credits include Duncan Jones' Mute, Devlin's Geostorm, the Italian holocaust drama Anita B., The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Killing Bono with Ben Barnes, Season of the Witch with Nicolas Cage and Perlman, and Cherrybomb with Grint.

Sheehan recently appeared on the second season of Genius: Picasso. Sheehan plays Carles Casagemas, a Spanish art student and poet who was one of Picasso's closest friends.

Sheehan is currently shooting The Umbrella Academy, a live-action series based on the popular graphic novels by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Ba for Netflix.

The story follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes known as the Umbrella Academy as they work together to solve their father's mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities. Ellen Page co-stars with Sheehan, who plays Klaus, a drug addict and disarming pleaser who is seemingly everyone's friend, but will rob you blind without thinking twice.

In 2017, Sheehan co-starred in the second season of Sky Atlantic's acclaimed Arctic thriller Fortitude, alongside Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Parminder Nagra, Richard Dormer and Luke Treadaway. Set in the Arctic town of Fortitude, season two explores explosive events that include a fresh murder that rocks the community and plunges it into turmoil.

Sheehan first received wide acclaim and a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Award nomination for Misfits, the E4 drama that follows five juvenile offenders engaged in community service who develop superpowers following a lightning storm. For the first two seasons, Sheehan starred as sarcastic, witty Nathan Young, a young criminal who attains immortality after the storm. Misfits received the BAFTA Award for Drama Series for its premiere season.

He later starred for three seasons in RTE's acclaimed crime drama Love/Hate, directed by David Caffrey. Sheehan portrayed Darren Tracey, a young criminal who returns to Dublin after fleeing to Spain to avoid gun possession charges. Upon his return, Darren's brother Robbie is released from prison and shot outside a newsstand. Catastrophic events ignite tension among the drug gang, family and friends, and the community must grapple with the consequences. Sheehan was twice nominated for Best Actor in a Lead Role by The Irish Film & Television Academy for his work in the series. Love/Hate is currently available on Netflix.

In 2008, Sheehan landed the role of BJ, an elusive male prostitute in Red Riding, Channel 4's adaptation of David Peace's cult-noir novels set in Yorkshire during the 1970s and 1980s. The BAFTA Award-winning trilogy (directed by Julian Jerrold, Academy Award winner James Marsh and Anand Tucker), features Sheehan alongside Andrew Garfield, Rebecca Hall, Michelle Dockery, Sean Bean, David Morrissey, Paddy Considine and Peter Mullan. In the U.S., IFC released Red Riding theatrically.

Sheehan's television credits also include Me and Mrs. Jones (BBC); the ABC telefilm The Borrowers, directed by Tom Harper and which starred Christopher Eccleston and Stephen Fry; the miniseries Young Blades; ITV's Rock Rivals; and Foreign Exchange.

On stage, Sheehan most recently starred as Richard III in The Wars of the Roses at the Rose Theatre Kingston, a gripping distillation of four of Shakespeare's history plays, directed by Sir Trevor Nunn, one of the world's great Shakespearian interpreters. A spectacular theatrical event not seen since it was first produced at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1963 by Peter Hall and John Barton, The Wars of the Roses explores one of the most tumultuous and intriguing periods of British history-the 15th century conflict between the Houses of York and Lancaster for the throne of England. A tale of feuding families, murderous kings and adulterous queens, scheming and betrayal, revolts and battles, The Wars of the Roses chronicles the final struggle for power in medieval England. Previously, Sheehan starred on London's West End Theatre in John Crowley's 2011 production of J.M. Synge's comedy The Playboy of the Western World at The Old Vic.

Born in County Laois, Ireland, Sheehan landed his first professional gig in Aisling Walsh's feature Song for a Raggy Boy at age 14.
