Damian a TV star

It is a case of life imitating art. Londonderry student Damian McGinty is to appear in seven episodes of the hit high school singing and dancing series, Glee, after beating 40,000 contenders for the coveted role. He has already tasted showbusiness success as a member of the Celtic Thunder band but this latest break gives him worldwide exposure.

His father describes Damian as a well-grounded young lad and he will need all his common sense to help him through the coming months when his role is filmed. Certainly the show could not be better named for the emotion he is now feeling.
