NETFLIX star Robert Sheehan reveals he feels “rusty” after taking a break from acting during the pandemic.
The Portlaoise native, who is well known for playing the flamboyant Klaus in The Umbrella Academy, admitted that he could use more rehearsal time before heading back to set.
Robert is set to continue filming for season three of the hit superhero series in January.
He said: “The year’s been strange because it feels like I’m rusty now do you know what I mean?
“In terms of acting, in terms of that outlet of creativity it feels like I’m very very rusty.
BACK TO SET
“I could do with going back and doing a couple of week’s rehearsals to kind of dust off the cobwebs certainly.”
He revealed that filming for season three resumes at the beginning of 2021.
He said on Ireland AM: “Kind of New Year’s, just after New Year’s.
“Head over, do the quarantine if that’s still imposed over in Canada and then I’m pretty much there until kind of Autumn really.
“It’s a seven month stint so it’s a fairly significant time away.
“A fair whack of time to kind of up sticks but it’s kind of a lovely place to be sequestered to for six, seven months in Toronto.”
The actor is best known for his role as Nathan Young in Misfits and for his time as Darren in Love/Hate.
Robert said he’s still recognised as the Dublin gangland member from the hit crime RTE series.
He said: “It’s lovely, predominantly in Ireland. I was with Sean McGinley, we were walking the road in Dublin and someone went, ‘Oi Charlo!'”
McGinley was known for his part as Charlo Spencer in TV show Family in the 90s.

The Umbrella Acamedy has been renewed for a 3rd season!
The future of The Umbrella Academy has remained somewhat uncertain following the conclusion of Season 2, as a third season has not been officially announced.
Despite the lack of announcements, a Production Weekly report suggests that Season 3 of the series will begin filming on Feb. 1. 2021 and is scheduled to be completed in August 2021. The report states that the entirety of production will take place in Toronto. It should be noted that the release of such details do not confirm that The Umbrella Academy will see a return to screens. As of yet, Netflix has not confirmed the show’s renewal.
Both seasons of the Netflix series have released to widely positive critical reception. The streaming giant reported that the first season was streamed by 45 million viewers within the first month and became Netflix’s third most popular series in 2019.
Season 2 was released in 2020 and saw the Hargreeves children hurled back across the 1960s in the aftermath of the explosive Season 1 finale. While searching for a way back to their own time, the family is forced to defend themselves against Swedish assassins and the Commission, all while trying to prevent major alterations to history by ensuring that the Kennedy assassination occurs. The season ended with the Hargreeves returning to the present, only to find that the world has once again changed and the Umbrella Academy is no more– it has now been replaced by the Sparrow Academy, led by none other than a seemingly resurrected Ben Hargreeves.
