Episode 2 of ‘Behind the Wall’, visits the audition process as myself and Dublin based James O’Connor struggle with the task of finding the perfect cast for ‘The Wall in the Mind’.
Behind The Wall is a series of special feature podcasts accompanying ‘The Wall in the Mind’, an ambitious new on-location drama series, coming to Newstalk and podcast starting on Saturday the 16th of April. Each episode features an interview or behind the scenes clip. Think of it like the ‘making of’ special features on a DVD or Blu-Ray.
Claire O’Hanlon, a young Irish woman, became caught up in the events sweeping East Berlin, just prior to the fall of the Berlin wall. Arrested at a pro-democracy protest, Claire and her friends were imprisoned by the East German secret police. Twenty-five years later, now a successful academic, Claire returns to Berlin. She attempts to finally heal, and to resolve the mystery of what happened to her first love, Emil, who disappeared in 1989.
