This week, star of Normal People, Dating Amber and Handsome Devil, Fionn O'Shea, joined Jarlath for a fascinating conversation about his whirlwind career to date. While Fionn is currently known globally for playing one of the most reviled characters in recent memory, in this chat we learn that he is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.
Fionn opens up about how his privacy may be diminishing due to the success of Normal People (50:00), how the worst audition of his life saw him cast in an Oscar-nominated short film (30:00) and what it was like starring opposite Tom Holland in the new Russo Brothers film Cherry (36:00).
From the challenge of portraying true identity struggles in Dating Amber (10:00) to his aspirations to work with Bo Burnham (52:00) and much more, this conversation gives a rare and unique insight into the life and method of one of entertainment’s fastest rising talents.
