Who is Finn Malloy from SKYE?

Who is that tall, ginger-haired man?

Why, that's Finn Malloy.


Oh...I mean...that's Mark Rosenthal, our fight choreographer and captain for SKYE OF THE DAMNED.

Then who is Finn Malloy?

That's the number one question....guess you'll have to watch SKYE OF THE DAMNED and find out!

That's right! We are using our Fight Captin IN the series! Why? Cause we can...cause he's awesome...cause he is 6'6" of talented acting and fighting we really need any other reason? I mean, really.
Mark is originally from Rhode Island and is a graduate of the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA), The New School (for Musical Theatre), and the International Stunt School. He is also a member of the Society of American Fight Directors. Mark is one of those tripple-threat people...he sings, moves well, and acts. He's worked with the Hispanic Flamenco Ballet and the San Diego Opera to name a few places. He's a fellow avid fan of Joss Whedon (as everyone should be in my opinion), won't miss a Renaissance Faire...and owns lots and lots of weapons. He is also the younger brother of Celine Rosenthal, one of my friends and a Producer on the Broadway show, Leap of Faith. It's a talented family...what can I tell you?

I met Mark through Celine one New Years Eve...about 5 years ago (I think) at Vince Phillip and Rachel Grundy's New Years Eve Party and had a hard time believing he was Celine's "little" brother. Since then, I've worked with Mark on various projects. The two you'll spot him on most are the photo shoots for my books Moon Over Manhattan and Windfire / Living Dead Girl. As you can see in both the videos and still shots, Mark was our weapons specialist...and...he, along with his assistant, Trevor Swann, worked on the Bo Staff fight you see at the end of the Windfire video.

Sadly, I can't really tell you all much about the character Mark will be playing, Finn Malloy, or it gives too much away about the storyline of the web series...but he's an important character who is both tied to the political issues in the city as well as Skye's safety...or lack thereof.

I am looking forward to seeing what people think of his character as they gets bits and pieces as the story unfolds.

Tomorrow we will reveal two more cast members! Prince Cillian Black and Danae, the FAE Unseelie Queen back tomorrow and find out.  Until then...scroll down if you missed the announcements for Joelle Meadows and Jackson Reece!
