So shocked and saddened to hear the news of the tragic loss of Callum Mckenna, a well-loved former member of our MTA family- gone too soon. He was a ray of sunshine and the life and soul at drama.
He touched the hearts of everyone and was beautiful through and through; so talented and always brought laughter to the group, with his great comedy skills and quirky characterisation. In fact, he won best actor, at the one-act play festival for his portrayal of Victor in Totally Over You and the part had his name on it right from the start.
He is pictured with his good friend Amy below; the two of them made a hilarious duo as Mr and Mrs Twit. Our hearts go out to his loving family at this heartbreaking time. We feel so lucky to have known Callum and he will be so sadly missed.
