Domhnall Gleeson


About Time is one of the greatest romantic comedies of all time and you can’t tell us any different.

The heartwarming movie starring Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy never fails to make us smile, melt our hearts and leave us bawling like a newborn baby at the end (that beach scene).

Set in both London and Cornwall, About Time always leaves us lusting to jet away to where Tim and Mary’s love story takes place.

Country House charm by the sea

You can even go a step further now and stay in Tim’s gorgeous family home in Cornwall.

That’s right, the actual house where the famous New Years party took place, where many a table tennis tournament occurred and plenty packets of biscuits were opened.

The family home, which is located on Cornwall’s south coast is the perfect place to getaway from the dull realities of everyday life.

The decor hasn’t changed much since the movie was filmed in 2013 so now our dream of being in a rom-com can finally come true.

All we need now is to bump into Domhnall Gleeson.

The holidays are over and we must admit we are feeling pretty heartbroken about it. Why do they have to go by so quickly?

It feels like Christmas Eve was here in an instant and now we’re back in the office.

It’s been a long and draining day and it feels weird to be wearing something other than pyjamas, but the weekend is only one day away.


There’s no doubt that everyone will be feeling a little miserable, and most definitely shattered, after the first day back at work so do yourself a favour and curl up on the sofa for the evening with the remainders of your selection box.

Like us, you’ve probably grown tired of Christmas movies and binge-watched the new series of You in the space of two days but one of our favourite movies is on TV tonight.

Brooklyn will air on RTÉ One today and we honestly couldn’t think of a better movie to watch after being at work all day.

Starring Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters, Brooklyn follows Eilis, a young Irish girl who moves to New York in the 1950s, as she starts a new chapter of her life far away from home.

Brooklyn airs on RTÉ One at 21.35 tonight.


With a string hit movie roles and award nominations already under his belt, it's safe to say that Domhnall Gleeson has well and truly earned his place in the who's who of Hollywood.

Having often earned praise from critics and fans alike, it now looks like the Irish actor's co-stars are getting in on the action.

Ahead of the upcoming release, Goodbye Christopher Robin, Margot Robbie has been praising Domhnall's performance and even admitted how she wants to “keep working with him forever.”

The film follows the story of WWI veteran, AA Milne (Domhnall Gleeson), and his party girl wife, Daphne (Margot Robbie).

After years of struggling to bond with his son, Christopher, Milne eventually finds a way to connect while temporarily alone in the countryside one summer's evening.

Their magical adventures then inspire him to write and publish the stories that will eventually popularise the characters of Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger.

Having first worked together on the 2013 romance, About Time, Margot and Domnhall don't plan to end their professional relationship any time soon.

Speaking to Bang Showbiz, the Australian born actress said: "He is unbelievable. He was amazing and he is such an incredible actor."

"I love the choices he makes with the roles he does. He is very funny and a wonderful person."

"He is the greatest guy in the world. I want to keep working with him forever," she added.

And it looks like the love goes both ways with Domhnall also gushing over his Christopher Robin co-star.

"Margot Robbie is wonderful. She is brilliant to be around and a really good person,” he said.

"You want to hold on to those people. I have worked with her twice now and I hope that relationship continues over the years."

And with plans to work together on next year's Peter Rabbit already in motion, it looks like this talented pair are giving us a lot to look forward to.


From its statement trenches to patterned scarves, Burberry has long been synonymous with luxury.

But as the iconic brand’s newly released Christmas trailer suggests, Burberry is also a name which has survived the trials and tribulations of the 20th century.

Featuring our very own Domhnall Gleeson as brand founder Thomas Burberry and American Sniper star Sienna Miller as his wife, the label’s latest mini movie documents 160 years of fictionalised history.

In what is bound to be one of the year’s most stunning advertising campaigns, Brendan Gleeson’s son can be seen kissing the popular model, while The Wire’s Dominic West plays British explorer Ernest Shackleton and Cinderella lead Lily James channels a fictional pilot based on Betty Kirby-Green.

Get your first Christmas feels below:



Domhnall Gleeson has been making waves all over the world recently, and now he's signed himself on to star in a new Netflix movie.

The Dublin actor is going to star alongside Saturday Night Live's Will Forte in a film about the US satirical magazine National Lampoon.

The mag ceased publication in 1998, but was a major success in the 70s and 80s.

The flick is an adaptation from Josh Karp's book A Futile and Stupid Gesture: How Doug Kenny and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever, with Domhnall taking on the role of the mag's boss Henry Beard.

As Star Wars: Episode VIII is set to film in Ireland in May, there's just no stopping this Dublin man.



It seems like the whole world just can't seem to get the hang of Irish names.

After Denis Quaid messed up Saoirse Ronan's name at the Golden Globe nominations, Leonardo DiCaprio has gone and messed up Domhnall Gleeson's name at last night's SAG Awards.

Leonardo won Best Actor Award for his part in The Revenant, and while he was thanking the cast and crew, he said Domhnall Gleeson… But it didn't quite sound like the way we say it.

Instead, it kinda sounded like he said 'Duumbal' Gleeson.

Ah, we'll get there someday! Watch Mr DiCaprio's speech and spot the error:




He may be a familiar face on Irish TV screens, but it turns out no-one has a clue who poor Laurence Kinlan is in the States. 

And Domhnall Gleeson decided to remind him of this little fact earlier this week… in front of an audience of millions.

While backstage getting ready for his appearance on the Late Show with James Corden, Domhnall decided to play a good old fashioned practical joke on his Love/Hate pal.

On live television, Domhnall asks James to acknowledge his mate Laurence who he says is "also a great actor."

And in true James Corden fashion, the presenter rolls with it introducing poor Laurence as a "three time Academy Award nominee." 

Laurence was quick to share the hilarious clip on social media. 

Now that is some true Irish banter. 



Domhnall Gleeson may be about to hit super stardom with the release of Star Wars, but his recent interview revealed him to still be the awkward Irish chappie we know and love. 

Speaking on the Ryan Tubridy show this morning, Domhnall confirmed that he is still, after all, only human. 

The Irish actor attended the British Film Awards last night where he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in indie hit Ex Machina. 

And unfortunately for him, his famous father Brendan Gleeson was also nominated. 

"I was nominated against my father in the Best Supporting Actor category. I lost to him [but] my Dad was not there so I had to walk up to the podium to accept the award."

And if that wasn't bad enough, it looked like he had thought he had actually won. 

"On the way up, they said, 'Here to accept the award is the film’s director Sarah Gavron' [but] I was already up there!"

Uh oh.

"Alicia Vikander, who was presenting the trophy, had her mouth opened in horror because she thought that I had heard the wrong name and was strutting up because I thought I had won."

However, when Domhnall began reading the speech prepared by his father, it became clear what had happened. 

Still, Domhnall described it as one of the more awkward awards show moments that he has experienced. 

And unfortunately for him, the awkward moments just kept coming that night. 

"Later on that night, Tom Hardy won Best Actor and he organised for my name to be called out again to collect the award for him even though I had nothing to do with the film he won for. So I went up on stage twice to accept awards I didn’t win."

Well, Tom Hardy sounds like the absolute craic!



He's starred alongside Leo DiCaprio in The Revenant, been directed by Angelina Jolie in Unbroken and appears with a stellar Irish cast in Brooklyn.

Domhnall Gleeson has come a long way since the days of playing Ron Weasley's big brother in Harry Potter, but it's this latest project that's finally placed him firmly in the 'A-list' camp.

The Dublin-born actor features in a stunning shoot for the new issue of US Vogue, alongside none other than Victoria's Secret newbie Gigi Hadid.

The pair – who we have to say look VERY good together – were photographed by Mario Testino in the breath-taking surroundings of Porto, Portugal.

Wearing a white Dries Van Noten suit and shirt, Domhnall looks right at home next to a Marc Jacobs-clad Gigi (we never noticed his hair had such VOLUME).

In another shot, Domhnall swaps his shirt for a black one, while Gigi looks typically gorgeous in a €2,500 Dolce & Gabanna lace jumpsuit.

Heck, the actor even manages to make a beige suit look good – albeit a Burberry London one, teamed with a crisp Hérmes shirt.

Vogue are calling the shoot a snapshot of the "perfect winter break," and we're inclined to agree.

Despite his rising fame, Domhnall insists he rarely gets recognised and still manages to keep under the radar of the paps.

Earlier this year he told the Irish Independent he gets spotted "more in Ireland than abroad," and even then it's mainly for work he's done with RTÉ rather than his big name films.

After this Vogue shoot though, we reckon he'll be attracting quite a bit more attention… from the ladies, at least.


Irish actress Saoirse Ronan was all smiles for cameras at the Toronto International Film Festival as her latest project Brooklyn was welcomed with huge praise from critics.

The film is an adaptation of Colm Tóibin’s novel of the same name. The story of Eílis who leaves her rural hometown in Ireland for the US was adapted for film by Nick Hornby.

Speaking to Now Toronto, Saoirse was keen to downplay the acclaim she is receiving for her performance opposite Domhnall Gleeson.

She said that she was able to strongly identify with the character and her desire for growth fighting with a longing for her home:

“By the time we made the filmI’d essentially gone through Eílis’s journey.”

She explained that even now she feels a huge emotional attachment to the project and her character as she explained:

“I was right in the middle of feeling a deep, deep homesickness, missing my own mom and figuring out where I belonged in between these two places.”

Since the film’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year it has received much praise and exceedingly positive reviews. The New York Post commented Saoirse’s performance was “awards-calibre”.

While her work has been generating speculation of Oscar nominations, Saoirse would rather talk about the work itself than any awards or accolades.

She said that any “Oscar buzz” she hears is being taken with a pinch of salt.

She also commented that while she loved her costumes she felt a lot that had to do with the body types accepted as the norm in the 1950s.

"The shapes of the clothes are much more womanly, allowing for curves. Women were encouraged to have boobs and have a bum."

She added that she preferred “how much healthier” women’s body types were in the past.


Domhnall Gleeson took to the red carpet at the Irish premiere of Ex Machina where Niamh Geaney was there to greet him. Domhnall opened up about his horrific weight loss ordeal, binging, family love and the movie that's got everyone talking; Star Wars.

Domhnall is starring in Ex Machina which is hitting cinemas this Friday. If you missed our earlier video where he chats about the movie and his role you can check it out here.
