Actor and comedian Michael Smiley joins us for Desert Island Flicks. Brian Henry Martin is the host for this cinematic cross examination.

Once more Belfast Film Festival will bring a guest back in time to the darkness of their local “Roxy” and ask them to revive their best cinema experiences in response to questions like “What is your first cinema memory?”, “Who gets you hot under the collar?”, and “What movie do people love that you can’t stand?”.

We have the wonderful Michael Smiley as our guest to talk about his choices and his wonderful career to date in the world of film and television. His film credits include Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, A Field in England and Kill List in which he received a best supporting actor award at the British Independent Film Awards. Other roles include Rogue One, The Lobster, Burke and Hare and The Other Boleyn Girl. Michael’s TV credits include cult British sitcom Spaced, where he played the role of Tyres O’Flaherty on the show, and later appeared in Shaun of the Dead as a zombified take on his Spaced character. He also went on to have a recurring role as computer expert Benny in BBC 1’s multi-award-winning show Luther. Additional credits include BBC’s Ripper Street, Doctor Who, and Channel 4’s Black Mirror.
