Let’s meet over a smooth pour over coffee with deep chocolatey notes and discuss the finer points of film, acting and life itself.

Prendergast gives a pitch perfect rendition of a reading from the novel at one stage, making for one of the film’s most memorable and impressive moments.

Colin J McCracken review of Shem The Penman Sings Again, Lastcinema.com

Productions often cast me as articulate and analytical types with an artistic side. The characters I play tend to be trustworthy and reliable, and there’s almost always a complex or philosophical angle to their personality.

I thrive in projects that tell a meaningful story which examine the human condition or have a strong sense of social justice. I enjoy the escapism of art as a refuge from reality, but I also believe that art needs to challenge, question and hold a mirror up to society to motivate improvement or, at the very least, stimulate discussion.

As an experienced actor with both theatre and screen credits, I take every opportunity to improve my craft. For the past two years I explored the teachings of Meisner, Adler and Strasberg under acting coach Tom Kibbe and attended workshops and masterclasses in Bow Street with Gerry Grennell and Cathy Brady.

Recently I appeared in Peter Foott’s The Young Offenders and Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship. On television I am in episodes of Red Rock, Vikings and Penny Dreadful.

Whether training, rehearsing or performing, when I work as an actor I am alive.
