Earlier this year, photos showing a man dressed in a CGI suit on the set of Avengers Infinity War emerged online.

Film buffs were left confused by the man's mysterious identity, however, many Irish fans were quick to point out the striking resemblance to actor, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor.

Having initially remained silent as rumours started to circulate, the Love/Hate star has finally cracked and confirmed he has joined the cast of The Avengers alongside stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt, just to name a few.

Formally known as King Nidge to many Irish fans, the 40-year-old actor is believed to play the role of mind-controlling Ebony Maw.

Speaking on RTÉ Radio One's Second Captains, Tom said: “I am. But it’s like I’m one of those ones where you go into a sentence to say something about it and hope you have a job at the end of the sentence.”

“You sign so many documents and waivers and people ask you about it and you have to give the generic and boring ‘I can’t say too much about it’.”

“But I am doing it and it’s really amazing and an amazing thing to be part of.”

Avengers: Infinity War hits Irish cinemas April 27, 2018.


When Tom Vaughan-Lawlor first appeared on our screens as Love/Hate baddie Nidge we knew the Dundrum native was something special, and now it seems Oscar nominee Bryan Cranston agrees.

The Breaking Bad lead has described Tom as “dangerously talented” after getting to know the Trinity graduate while working with him on their upcoming movie The Infiltrator.

Brian told The Irish Sun: “Tom was a dream to work with. An absolute dream. Immensely talented, I’d go as far to say, dangerously talented.”

He said: “[Tom’s] sensibilities and his instincts were always on point. He’s chameleonic in his performance.”

“It was a masterclass and he will conquer wherever and whatever he does in the future.”

“And not to mention, [he was] a genuinely lovely warm guy. But that’s what you always get with the Irish.”  Awh Brian, you sure know how to say the right things!

The Infiltrator is based on the true story of a US agent who went undercover to break down Pablo Escobar's famous drug trafficking gang.

The movie is set for released this September.

Any Ed Sheeran video is generally enough to make anyone’s Monday a little bit better.

When you add in King Nidge to the equation then things reach another level. Over the weekend the pair bumped into each other in London and couldn’t resist teasing fans with their antics.

Before we got totally excited altogether though, it turns out the pair were big fans of each other and Ed really wanted to hear Nidge speak in person.

One celebrity friendship we weren’t expecting this morning.

The duo were hanging out together between Ed’s sell-out Wembley Stadium concerts. Love/Hate star Tom Vaughan Lawlor pulled out his best Nidge character to get Ed giggling.

"Alright man, here with the main man Ed, about to go out and watch him on the show, can't wait for it", the fictional crime boss tells us.

"Nidgey, I have a bone to pick with him", was mega-fan Ed’s response.

When Ed posted the video to his Instagram page though, his fans were a little confused.

"Yes it is English, it's a thick Dublin accent", one user had to explain to some non-Irish Ed Sheeran fans who were left a bit baffled by Tom’s accent.

Meanwhile, independent.ie reports that some fans of Ed’s were left less than impressed when their tickets to his concert almost didn’t arrive on time.

Some had bought their tickets at Christmas time and were left with a message from Get Me In, run by Ticketmaster, to say they would not be arriving.

Fans were offered refunds instead but many took to Twitter to voice they disappointment. One Irish user complained of having no ticket for the concert and having booked flights to London and accommodation for the gig.
