NORTHERN Ireland actor Ciaran McMenamin called me on Friday to tell me he was being chased around the streets of Dublin by dinosaurs.
Of course I didnâ€™t believe it until he told me his latest good news.
Ciaran was recently confirmed as the new lead character Matt Anderson in the latest series of Primeval.
The ITV cult drama, which was facing being axed, will see our lad Ciaran join former S Club 7 singer Hannah Spearritt and Andrew-Lee Potts.
Ciaran said: â€œItâ€™s been a little weird acting with make-believe dinosaurs and because I havenâ€™t seen the show before I didnâ€™t really know what to expect.
â€œI will be in Dublin throughout most of the year filming and Iâ€™m really looking forward to seeing the finished product.â€
Meanwhile Ciaran has just returned from â€œpilot seasonâ€ in Los Angeles and can be seen in the forthcoming period drama Laconia.
â€œLaconia is by the fantastic writer Alan Bleasdale, we spent months in South Africa filming the story of the sinking of the British Cunard Star liner by a German U-boat off West Africa in 1942.
