Speaking on his role, the actor said "when I relocated to Dublin I was considering pausing my acting career and focusing on other things before this opportunity presented itself.

"I was invited for this casting and I went thinking I couldn't get the role since I'm not as handsome as the character described. So I went to give it a trial, and the casting director looked at me and said directors have the right to change their mind when they meet better actors. 'You are not as muscular as we want but I think we can work Stanley,' they said. So I thought he meant on other productions. I was surprised when I got a call-back and landed myself this small role that means the whole world to me."
