Aidan Turner and Robert Sheehan makes MovieFone's 10 Young Irish Actors on the Rise

MovieFone took a look at one of our favorite countries and compiled a list of the Irish Stars we Love: 10 young actors on the rise. They have two actors on the list from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones: Aidan Turner and Robert Sheehan>.

Aidan Turner:

Vital Stats:British TV fans will recognize Turner, 29, as the sexy vampire on the supernatural BBC series Being Human. He most recently played Kili, one of the central dwarves, in the first of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy.
Irish Cred: He was born and raised in Clondaklin, a town in South Dublin and graduated from the Gaiety School of Acting, also the alma mater of Stuart Townsend and Olivia Wilde.

What's Next: Turner will reprise his role as Kili in the next two Hobbit installments, and he returns to the supernatural world as a werewolf in this summer's YA adaptation, 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

Robert Sheehan:

Vital Stats: Like Turner, Sheehan, 25, starred a popular British TV show, the "Heroes" meets "Skins" series "Misfits." Sheehan also co-starred opposite Martin McCann in "Killing Bono" and "Harry Potter" ginger Rupert Grint in the indie coming-of-age drama "Cherrybomb." He's already been in 15 movies.

Irish Cred: A comedic actor with a killer brogue, Sheehan was born in Portlaoise, County Laois.

What's Next: Sheehan plays Simon, protagonist Clary's (Lily Collins) wisecracking best friend in "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," which also features fellow Irishmen Aidan Turner and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and could be the next big YA franchise.
To take a look at others on the list, including Sara Bolger, Evanna Lynch and Martin McCann (who played Bono in "Killing Bono" with Robbie and was in "Titanic: Blood & Steel" with Kevin Zegers) head on over to>for the full list.
