Cork native Jeremiah O’Connor moved from Archaeology to Acting when he arrived in London to train at Drama Studio London. His theatre credits include an energetic run as Lucky in Waiting For Godot at the Cockpit theatre, a charismatic Satan in The Last Days Of Judas Iscariot, Clowne in A Winters Tale, and two runs as Nigel in the improvised immersive speed dating comedy A Date To Remember.
Most recently Jeremiah joined the Travesties understudy company in the Apollo Theatre where he swapped between the anarchic creativity of Tristan Tzara and the dignified avant garde rhetoric of James Joyce.
On screen Jeremiah has appeared in the BBC’s Call The Midwife, the feature film MLE, and in a large number of short films including The Order, Appy Birfday, Hang, Sitting and Foxes On The Underground.
The Last Days Of Judas Iscariot
Credit though to Jeremiah O’Connor, whose haughty Satan shrugs off proceedings with aplomb
Matt Trueman – TimeOut
Jeremiah O’Connor’s Satan is deceptively cool, drawing you in before unleashing a wicked tongue that flays his enemies.
Honour Bayes – The Stage
But best of all is Jeremiah O’Connor full of Irish blarney as an immensely attractive and witty Satan
Peter Scott-Presland – Remote goat
The star of the show comes from a rather alluring and magnetic Satan, played by Jeremiah O’Conner. His alluring performance was ever-so endearing … His arrogance never wavers and he plays Satan with … confidence and variety
Emily Goldthorpe – OneStopArts
A Date To Remember
Jeremiah O’ Connor is wonderful as Nigel.. he is awkward to perfection.. while watching the play the focus kept going back to him
Fringe Report – Chantel Pierre-Packer
very natural performances from Jeremiah O’Connor … with their poetic, native accents, are highly moving
Extra Extra – Samuel John
Waiting for Godot
O’Connor as Lucky effortlessly pulls off the most difficult monologue of the play and brings an odd, almost indefinable nobility to his lot.
Views from the Gods
I was also very impressed with the consistency with which Jermiah O’Connor delivers a crumbling, shattered Lucky. It is a physically demanding part and O’Connor played it with real finesse.
Everything Theatre – Donna Clark
The arrival of Jeremiah O’Connor’s wonderful broken, dribbling Lucky and Joe Cushley’s garrulous Pozzo breaks the monotony and ramps up the absurdity to new heights.
The Stage – Paul Vale
Lucky (Jeremiah O’Connor) is an intellectual who, given the opportunity will pontificate about everything in the world – This speech is a tour de force and is played differently because of the theatre in the round. He makes definite moves on each change of subject and gradually becomes more and more violent until he is almost screaming and has to be shut up.
