London's calling for Aaron as he signs with top talent agent

Love/Hate's Aaron Heffernan is a star on the rise as he has been signed to a new agency in the UK.

The top talent agency represent huge stars like Keira Knightley, Benedict Cumberbatch and Angelina Jolie.

And the male model is looking forward to the new challenge.

"I'm moving to London, I got signed to a new agency called United Talent and it's really exciting," he told the Herald.

"I'm gonna be hanging out with Tom Hardy and Keira Knightley so that'll fill up my time," he joked.


And while he didn't have a huge role in season five of the top gangland drama, Aaron was shocked by the final episode.

"I had a cameo more so than an involvement but that's what happens, that's life," he said.

"It [the final episode] was terrifying - it was an emotional rollercoaster.

"I watched it with my friends because we didn't have a get-together with the cast - that was just for episode four," he added.

And while he might be preparing to leave for London, Aaron says he'll be back to Dublin regularly as he's still working with Collapsing Horse Theatre Company, which he runs with Game of Thrones star Jack Gleeson.

"We're doing a full hour-long Aeneid [the Latin poem] mext March. We did a half-hour version of it for the Dublin Theatre," he said.

"There's a few other roles that I'm auditioning for so we'll see what happens," he said.

Aaron is also an ambassador for Movember where men grow moustaches during November to spark conversation and raise vital funds for men's health programmes.


Other ambassadors include Jamie Heaslip, Hozier, U2 and Damien Rice.

"My own arsenal of facial hair is somewhat sparse but I'm growing a moustache anyway. It's for such a great cause," he said.

And not one to limit himself to one industry, Aaron has also opened his own gym.

"I also just recently opened a gym with my brother Simon in Harold's Cross," he revealed.

"It's called Bodies By Heff and you know, sometimes I work out without my top off," he joked.
