Eoin Macken hopes season three of The Night Shift has more war games
WITH an ensemble cast, herea��s yet another medical drama for the viewers. The creative brainchild of Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah, The Night Shift will have dramatic emotions and fast-paced action. Eoin Macken will be seen playing the lead role, with the show being set in a military hospital. But the actor, who was last seen in the fantasy-adventure series Merlin, admits that playing the role wasna��t easy. More from him:
How would you sum up the character of TC Callahan?
Callahan is a bit of a rogue. Hea��s a military doctor who served in Afghanistan and hea��s a little bit of a renegade. Hea��s a very intelligent man, but hea��s also very volatile and he does what he thinks is best.
Whata��s the common ground between you and him?
I think where I associate or empathise with Callahan is how he believes hea��s right and he doesna��t like authority. He likes to do things his own way.
What did you take away from the show?
I learnt a lot about the military, about how important it is in American culture. I learnt a lot that I didna��t really understand about people who are army vets and what theya��ve gone through and how they are re-acclimatising into society.
You must be thrilled that ita��s just been picked up for a third season.
I think the third season will be interesting because everything is set up now and the exploration of where the characters come from is pretty much done. So youa��re able to evolve.
What would you like to see happen?
In the end of season two, they went back to Afghanistan and that was really interesting. Ia��d like to do some more of the military stuff because I think thata��s a different aspect to the show that a lot of people connect with and a lot of people like. Even though ita��s set in a hospital, Ia��d like to see them go abroad a bit more because I like all the on-the-field stuff.
