NWRC graduate following in the footsteps of DeNiro thumbnailNorth West Regional College graduate Oisin McCool has been awarded a place at the prestigious Stellar Studio of Acting in New York.

A 25 years-old local man who took up acting two years ago when he began a HND in Performing Arts at North West Regional College (NWRC), has been awarded a place at a prestigious acting school in New York, where Robert DeNiro learned his craft.
Oisin McCool has been accepted into the Stella Adler Studio of Acting for the Summer. The school boasts an impressive alumni that includes DeNiro, Marlon Brando, Salma Hayek and Kevin Costner.
Three years ago, Oisin McCool reached a crossroads in his life when he took the decision to drop out of his University Business Degree. He commented: "I had taken the advice I had been given by teachers and careers advisors to study business but the course just wasn't me. I wondered if there was a course you could do that would make you happy.
“Deep down, I knew I wanted to try acting and someone suggested I go to NWRC. Since then, I've never looked back. I had absolutely no experience of acting and I went in blind to this new world of a HND in Performing Arts."
Having graduated in October 2016, Oisin auditioned for his place at the Stellar school of Acting in London after spotting an advertisement on facebook.
