With Assassins Creed Valhalla’s first DLC coming to Ireland WFT Member Sinéad O’Riordan collaborated with Dare Media Productions in Cork to shoot a two-minute live-action homage to the game’s latest release.
“I was cast for this in November last year and personally did a lot of character transformation for the role (learned horseriding, changed my entire look, and learned screen combat). It was an absolutely incredible character to play and it’s only a taste of what’s to come for her. It’s also great that the writer/director Darren O’ Mahony went with a female version of the gaming character as the actual gaming company underrepresented the female version with the majority of the marketing.”
Sinéad plays Eivor, a clan leader who demands respect, a respected and fearless warrior. One who men will follow without hesitation to the gates of hell if necessary.
