Michael Flatley has urged young people to “go for it” as he spoke about his motivation for making his debut feature film, saying people had told him it was “impossible”. The dancer and choreographer, 64, has written, directed and also stars in the spy thriller BLACKBIRD, in which he plays former MI6 operative Victor Blackley who is drawn back into a world of espionage he left behind. The film screened at the Monaco Streaming Film Festival last year, where Flatley picked up the best actor award.
