Yes. He got the flute out

On that, In spar a few weeks ago I overheard a formerly well known and longstanding ac-tor (rough magic /abbey and various small roles in likes or fair city and crime line reconstructions) refer to him in a snobby d4 voice as “one step above Pornhub for god sake”

I think there’s a lot of jealousy and bitchiness in the Irish acting scene

Lovely lad too, as down to earth as they come, good company, very self deprecating and very charming. I'm delighted to see things going so well for him tbh.
We all know him as well as you do now

It's not his fault the RTE 'journalist' went with that headline.
Probably cos Normal People aired on RTE and this new show is on VM1.

I think a lot of articles about Daniel Day Lewis back in the day had headlines about his Irish roots, when I'm sure he'd have rather talked about how he learned to fire a musket for his role in Last of the Mohicans.
I should have explicitly said it was the media I was having a go at, I just thought that was obvs. I did say fair play to him for making it to be fair.

And i'm sure he is, and has, a lovely lad.

I think he’s a sound enough old fella but he would definitely need to watch for the over exposure.

OP acting is hardly a stable career, who knows how long this wave will last for him? You're hardly saying he should be turning down publicity interviews? Just let him enjoy it.

As someone else said, which is a good point, at least acting is a trade. He's not some unemployable content creator lying to people about paid advertisements.

As for Normal People, it was a good programme alright but the soundtrack was mg favourite part. Very moody and contemplative, whoever was responsible for that did a brilliant job.

One of the few shows that (in no small part due to RTE having nothing to do with its production) deserved the hype.

In fairness it's not the reason it got so much attention.

It was because of the quality of the show and its popularity,

Now nominated for deserved Emmys.

RTE only advertised it here and is not responsible for the show's worldwide success.

It was a good enough program.

if we had a series of Love Island this year he'd be mentioned very little on Instrgram and other social media sites now in my opinion now.
Whilst the program would still get nominated for awards.
So, I'll stick to my opinion.
