IFTA is delighted to invite Irish Film & Television Academy Members to attend an Acting Masterclass with John Lynch.

John Lynch received a BAFTA nomination for his haunting and memorable performance in the 1983 Irish film Cal. Since then, he has built on his early success appearing in many Irish films including In The Name Of The Father where he gave a spellbinding performance as Paul Hill. 2005 saw him give an understated, pitch-perfect performance alongside Samantha Morton and Peter O'Toole in an adaptation of the timeless classic, Lassie.

His undeniable versatility was evident recently following his appearance in Channel 4's recent drama MO. In recent years John has turned his creative talent to writing. Torn Water his highly regarded debut novel is soon to be followed by a second novel, the eagerly awaited, Falling Out Of Heaven.

As part of his Acting Masterclass John will read an excerpt from it and will spend some time examining the relationship between writing and acting.
