Los Angeles, CA (October 21, 2015) – Irish actor RICHIE STEPHENS reprises his ‘savior’ role in popular British artist Florence and the Machine’s brand new music video “Delilah,” off her third album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.
Stephens’ character was first introduced earlier this year when he carried the soulful songstress Florence Welch to safety in the music video for “What Kind of Man.” For “Deliliah,” Stephens returns once again as a ‘savior’ figure, shirtless and ready to watch over Florence as she moves through despair towards satisfaction during a metaphorical betrayal calling upon the biblical story of Samson and Delilah.
Stephens was excited at the opportunity to help deliver not one but two of Florence’s visual stories, adding “I love working with Florence and (director) Vince Haycock. Those shoots were a lot of fun and I have received so much support and well wishes from their fans on social media after doing the first one. I really feel blessed to work with them again. These days music videos aren’t what they used to be, but with Florence they are always epic.”
Up next, Stephens appears in a recurring role on the new Hulu series “RocketJump: The Show,” a hybrid documentary and sketch show from YouTube legend Freddie Wong, kicking off on December 2nd.
Coming soon, Stephens suits up as a soldier in British-Iranian director Rafi Pitts’ first Stateside-project, the dramatic feature film “Soy Negro”, which shot in Mexico. Stephens recently wrapped work on the pilot presentation “Hit TV” by rising director Saman Kesh; and has also just finished a guest star appearance as a Texas serial killer on the long-running CBS drama “Criminal Minds,” scheduled to air this December.
Stephens has been building a solid resume and reputation appearing in several highly touted indie films, including “Selling Dreams,” “The Shop” and the celebrated Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner “Fruitvale Station.”
Before heading to America, this Cavan, Ireland native was educated in St. Patrick’s College, Cavan and the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, where he earned a BA. He began acting as a young lad and since 2012 he has appeared in over 60 roles, from movies to TV shows to theater, voice over and commercials. He is one of the youngest members of The Actor’s Gym – an exclusive group of working actors and writers taught by 2 time Oscar winner Bobby Moresco.
