Domhnall Gleeson

The internet is a wondrous thing; you can go from not knowing a person exists one second to knowing what he's up to nine-to-five—as well as his song and nut preferences—the next.
Take Domhnall Gleeson. Domhnall's the son of one of my favorite Irish actors, Brendan Gleeson, and a few minutes ago he was unborn to me; now, I'd be stuck for conversation over a pint with him, 'cos I know it all. If pushed, I suppose I could ask if he's ever tried Chamomile tea and if the recent cold weather froze his water pipes (because I can't seem to find those answers online).

I'll spare you the Google-warp and tell you that Domhnall recently starred in a one off comedy sketch on RTE called Your Bad Self (see YouTube clips above), and will be playing Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (alongside his old man who plays Mad-Eye Moody).
His favorite song (as of last year) is Starálfur by Icelandic post-rock band, Sigur Rós. His favorite nuts are cashews.

Will be keeping a mad-eye on this fella ...

I am an older gal and saw "About Time" last night. I immediately took to Domhnall (not knowing where he came from), when I saw his name on the credits - it 'clicked in'. Of course his name would be in the Gaelic and of course he would be Irish and of course he would have a famous father. What a talented young man and what a pleasure to meet him...I am Canadian but, my late mother was Irish!
