Star In Focus: Colin O’Donoghue in The Rite

January 25, 2011

New Line Cinema’s supernatural thriller “The Rite” explores the mysteries of exorcism through the eyes of an expert and a novice. Mirroring that relationship, new actor Colin O’Donoghue makes his feature film debut as exorcist-in-training Michael Kovak, opposite the veteran Anthony Hopkins.

O’Donoghue did not have any feature film experience but sent an audition tape to the filmmakers. “I did a self-taping in my best friend’s back garden, but I didn’t know if anyone would ever watch it. Thank God they did,” he says with a smile. “It was a dream come true for me because I really felt a connection with Michael Kovak. Whether or not you believe in God or a higher power, whether you believe that your life is predestined or that you are in control of absolutely everything—these are all questions that Michael ponders.”

Opening across the Philippines on Feb. 2, New Line Cinema’s “The Rite” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
