Shane Briant

Shane Briant is an actor and novelist. Briant studied Law at Trinity College Dublin but became a professional actor at age twenty one, playing the name role in Hamlet at the Eblana Theatre. A year later he played one of the leads in Children of the Wolf, with Sheelagh Cullen and Yvonne Mitchel at London’s Apollo Theatre. Briant was subsequently nominated for the Best Newcomer Award by the London theater critics that year for this role. Since the early 1980s, the bulk, but not all, of Briant’s acting work has been in Australian and New Zealand films and television. He has starred in fourteen films. The first short film he wrote, A Message from Fallujah, won the Best of the Fest Award at the 2005 Los Angeles International Short Film Festival and was in the final mix of ten shorts for consideration for an Academy Award that year. He currently resides in Sydney, Australia.
