Regardless, it is interesting to note that Considine still chooses to reside with his family in his hometown in spite of his career in the entertainment industries.

Has Irlen Syndrome

In 2013, Considine was diagnosed with a condition called Irlen syndrome, which might be better-known to some people as either asfedia, visual stress, or scotopic sensitivity syndrome. Said condition is supposed to be when someone has a brain that is sensitive to some wavelengths of light, with the result that they have serious problems with intensive activities involving their eyes.

Other examples of their collaborations range from the unscripted movie called Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee to the Bartley Gorman biopic King of the Gypsies.

Directorial Debut on Tyrannosaur
