One To Watch: Domhnall Gleeson

Domhnall Gleeson swooped into our lives on a broomstick in the form of Bill Weasley in Harry Potter. He soon become our favourite romantic in About Time and eventually came to scare the wits out of us in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

So when the world remarks on red-haired men not being fairly represented in Hollywood, we think of Domhnall Gleeson and are ecstatic to see that he is slowly but surely injecting a colourful shade of ginger into the silver screen.

I mean, he has appeared in a whopping four of this year’s Oscar-nominated films: The Revenant, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, Brooklyn and Ex Machina. Seriously, if he was any more red hot he would be on fire.

Here’s why Domhnall Gleeson is one to watch in Hollywood, waving the ginger flag for us all.
