An Irishman Abroad

Ian Lloyd Anderson: Episode 209

September 16, 2017

Ian Lloyd Anderson's talent is undeniable. Best known for his standout roles on stage and screen (Love/Hate, Game of Thrones), this week, Ian joined Jarlath to discuss his work opposite Emmet Kirwan in the forthcoming movie adaption of Dublin Oldschool (4:00/52:00). Ian explains how his acting journey began in a school play he was forced into doing (10:00), his battle with weight loss (18:00) and being jealous of Peter Coonan on the set of Love/Hate (39:00). Ian tells the story of the birth of his daughter while he was working abroad (48:00) and how he still struggles to back himself in his career (22:00).

From the tough measures he would take to tackle homelessness in Ireland (1:00:00) to the beauty of anonymity in acting (27:00), the proudest moment of his career (41:00) and much, much more, this is a fascinating conversation with one of Ireland’s fastest rising stars.
