BANGKOK -- Just like a Hollywood fantasy, the dream call came as a complete surprise to Irish actor Eoin O'Brien. On the phone was Deborah Snyder, co-producer of films such as "Man of Steel" (2013), "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016)" and "Army of the Dead" (2021).

A martial arts expert mostly known for his fight scenes, O'Brien had performed in small parts in dozens of movies. But this was different, potentially his big break. "She said she'd seen me in 'The Last Full Measure,' and really liked me," he said. The 2019 film featured a host of stars including William Hurt, Samuel Jackson, Christopher Plummer and Peter Fonda.
