Get ready to watch Worthian Chris in 'Patriots Day'

Worthian Christopher O’Shea is to feature in the acclaimed movie Patriots Day, which is to be released in UK cinemas a week today.

Patriots Day, which has already been well received in America, is the story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing which killed three people and injured 264. The movie shows the events leading up to the bombing, the aftermath and the manhunt for the terrorists responsible.

It features Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon, Michelle Monaghan and JK Simmons and follows the everyday heroes who inspired the world in the extraordinary hours that followed the bombing.

Christopher O’Shea, who left Worth in 2003, plays Patrick Downes, a victim of the bombing and husband of Jessica Kensky, played by Rachel Brosnahan, who was also injured. The young couple are taken to separate hospitals where they are both required to have their legs amputated.

While this is his biggest role to date, Christopher’s acting career has also included parts in Madam Secretary (2014) and Baby Daddy (2012).

The movie is released in UK cinemas on Friday 24th February. For a trailer of the movie click here
