Stephen Holland

Dublin Region, Ireland


Actor Entertainer and creative director with the production company Blackthorn Arts. Highlight projects are many over a career span of 30 years... One City One Book projects for Dublin City Libraries Mr. Podzo Entertains and Double Trouble festival acts would be among some of the more recent highlights. Film appearances in 2014 “Light of Day” for Film Base films, featured commercial appearances for media and retail giants UPC and Tesco Mobile. It pays the bills and helps me focus on my own projects!!! Interests vary though I do like to spend time hill walking, playing squash, reading and travelling...
