An Irishman Abroad

Andrew Scott: Episode 237

March 30, 2018

This week, Olivier Award-Winning actor Andrew Scott welcomed Jarlath into his home in Central London to discuss his incredible journey from studying at Gonzaga College (10:00) to starring roles in Sherlock and alongside Daniel Craig in Spectre.

In wonderfully honest terms, Andrew reveals to Jarlath that he is in a ‘weird’ time in his career where he is not sure where to go (24:00), how he once dropped a manager in the US for limiting his artistic scope (26:00) and the truth behind his experience of coming out (57:00). From his views on the neglectful nature of sex education (1:01:00) to the power of vulnerability (53:00) and searching for the darkness inside himself (29:00) and much more, this is a gripping conversation with one of Ireland’s most respect on-screen/stage talents.
