Who is Eoin Macken?

Eoin Christopher Macken was born in Dublin, Ireland, on 21 February 1983 – his zodiac sign is Pisces and he holds Irish nationality. He is an actor, perhaps best known for his portrayal of the lead character T. C. Callahan in the romantic series “The Night Shift”, which aired from 2014 to 2017 and was created by Jeff Judah and Gabe Sachs. It also starred Jill Flint and Brendan Fehr, and it followed a team of doctors who come back from the Army to work at a San Antonio hospital – it won three awards and was nominated for two others.

Early life and education

Eoin was raised in Dublin alongside his two sisters, by their father who was a Barrister at Law and who died in 2007, and their mother who was a hairdresser.

Eoin was very sporting while attending high school, as he played soccer for the school’s team and was also practicing Gaelic football and lacrosse. Upon matriculation in 2001, he enrolled at University College, Dublin, where he became interested in acting. He was invited to take part in the university’s fashion show in both 2002 and 2003, and after being noticed by a modelling scout, he was signed to the Morgan Agency, eventually becoming the face of their campaign for Abercrombie and Fitch. Some of the other famous brands which he has modelled for include GQ and Ralph Lauren. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology in 2005.

In 2010 Eoin met Kellie Blaise, who is an actress, singer and a writer, perhaps best known for her portrayal of Lone Tech in the action adventure movie “Death Race 4: Beyond Anarchy”, which came out in 2018.
