Hynek (Aidan Gillen) by Karen Keslen

July 5, 2021 – Latest update on what the cast has been doing.

First, if your interest in UFO has been piqued due to the recent news on government reports on UFOs, check out Project Blue Book at PeacockTV. It’s free to watch! It’s got great writing, a wonderful cast and two seasons, but fans definitely want a continuation. Over 31K fans have signed the petition.

🛸 Great news. Michael Malarkey will be in a new film. Shot in New Mexico, the short film Two Roads ‘is a universal and relatable story about a person who questions his or her purpose, and existence.’ The film is directed by fellow Vampire Diaries alumni Michael Trevino. Full details at https://ladailypost.com/nmfo-two-short-films-being-produced-in-new-mexico/. IMDB page is sketchy at the moment but up at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14140878/fullcredits/?ref_=tt_ql_cl. If you think the name of his character, Marlon, is familiar, it’s because that’s the name of his first child. Thx to @klouise1992 for the tip!

Fantastic news for European fans! Michael set his schedule for a 2022 tour. Details here and at his site. Tickets are up for sale. U.S. fans hope for a U.S. tour eventually. 😊

Michael’s been very active on Instagram, this time for humanitarian causes. You can check his Twitter (@mkmalarkey) for important music announcements, but his main social media is now Instagram.

He’s also back in his ‘happy place’ 😊 Yes, if you want to follow Michael, Instagram is the place to be.

Michael was recently interviewed by @MistahIslah, an award-winning actor and filmmaker, where they talk about music and social issues. Interview is forthcoming but a link below.

🛸 And a project mentioned last year for Aidan Gillen is finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

You can read more about it in this article: https://deadline.com/2020/11/aidan-gillen-science-channel-series-killers-of-the-cosmos-wall-to-wall-1234618542/.
