If he keeps Kathryn Thomas, Lottie Ryan, Vogue etc out of the media for a while, I say good on him.

Whatever about getting out there in the media, the amount of articles (geared towards women) saying how much of a ride he and his character is (and the almost fetish fascination with his chain) bordered on creepy. You just know if there was half as many pieces on how hot Daisy Edgar Jones is, it would be called out as misogynist.

Then again, it brings to mind the fact that it wasn't men that made Magic Mike so popular. Or Fifty Shades. It isn't males screaming from the top of their lungs whenever <INSERT NEW YOUNG MALE SINGER/BOYBAND> enters on stage either.

Women are, by and large, far more openly pervy than men

Danial Day Lewis never got this much media attention and I'm sorry but from the clips I've seen I don't see any Oscar nominations coming any times soon.
Funnily enough given the right project i think he well has it in him....... One particular scene in Normal People was as good acting as I have seen this year

I'm sick of seeing his face to be quite frank. I didn't even watch NP but at this rate I feel like I'm living a portion of my life as his.

He's no Brad Pitt either, I mean he might get a a degree of attention in Coppers but in the grand scheme of things - slightly above average.

Fair play to him for his 'making it' an all, but jezz, we'll be reading how often he goes to the bathroom per day if this level of media attention doesn't abate.
Of my female friends, the Irish women are all like “Meh, he’s grand” and the non-Irish women are like “Schwing!”. They think he’s gorgeous whereas I feel like I’ve seen plenty of Mescals in my life.

Overexposure can be a career-killer for an actor though. If too visible, it’s harder to disappear into roles. I know I get distracted when I see an overexposed actor in something. Thoughts of all those pap shots/that ad they’re in/whatever pop into my head. So it can feed the instability of the profession. It’s a fine balance.

I think there’s a lot of jealousy and bitchiness in the Irish acting scene
I would well believe it.

Yes The Guardian & Daily Mail did the usual thing claiming him and Andrew Scott as British.

Why do they do this?

I think it's more than that. I've met several UK people who think Ireland is part of the UK. Unreal.

Yep and completely unnecessary.

It turned off huge audiences

Total overkill
Lol what?

It more than doubled the previous viewership record for the RTE player, replacing the record that had been set by Love/Hate, and did similar at the BBC.

How did you get the idea that "huge audiences" were turned off given those figures?

He needs to go on a Jonathan Rhys Myers type drunken downward spiral and they wont be long getting his nationality right.

Ah in fairness to him he's nominated for a few Emmy's which is massive for a TV actor. His life has totally changed the last few months. Seems a grounded lad too to hear in an interview unlike yer man Barry Keoghan whose ego seems to be off the scale.

He can do nothing about the standard of journalism today and as he said himself, his next goal after Normal People is to secure his next bit of work so he's quite correctly taking advantage of the hype and keeping himself in the limelight.

They had a couple of nonsense articles on the homepage yesterday and I see it's one of the top stories today.

I'm completely sick of hearing about it.
