Wednesday, October 23, 2019

YORKSHIRE EVENING POST (UNITED KINGDOM) -- After winning a place at the National Youth Theatre, which counts Daniel Craig, Rosamund Pike and Sir Daniel Day-Lewis among its alumni, Mr. O’Neill went on to study film at the University of East Anglia in Norwich and San Francisco State University.

He then came back to Leeds and worked in various jobs including roles at banks and selling double-glazing over the phone — but never gave up on his dream and kept firing out screenplays to Hollywood production companies.

His first feature film, “Absolute Debauchery,” a buddy crime movie he wrote, directed and co-starred in, was also released last year.
