Irish actor Andrew Scott was among the GQ cover stars honoured at the glitzy annual Men of the Year ceremony in London’s Royal Opera House. Scott will next be seen on cinema screens opposite fellow Irish actor Paul Mescal in ALL OF US STRANGERS, opening on Friday 26 January 2024. During the GQ ceremony, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who starred alongside Scott in the hit TV series FLEABAG, and Gatwa’s SEX EDUCATION co-star Jodie Turner-Smith were among those who gave a toast to the cover stars.
In the last three years, Paul Mescal has become one of the greatest new actors to watch for. Before NORMAL PEOPLE, the actor was a complete unknown, and only three years later, he’s already been nominated for an Emmy, a BAFTA, and an Academy Award, and has become a critics’ darling, as he keeps choosing to do indie films, where characters are much more important than action. Discover his Top 10 performances below.
Mescal’s Top 10
On the show’s 10-year anniversary, PEAKY BLINDERS creator, Steven Knight, has confirmed the story “is not yet over”. It hardly seems believable that it’s 10 years since Tommy Shelby first rode that black horse through the streets of Birmingham. The message was shared to the official Peaky Blinders Instagram page, which added: “Huge thanks to our incredible fans for the past ten years. Here’s to the next ten…” Following the show’s season six finale last year, Knight revealed plans to make a film that would serve as the seventh and final chapter.
FLEABAG’s hot priest, Andrew Scott, is about to take on his most liberating role yet: a one-man show of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya in which he will play all nine roles, male and female. In the coming months, Scott will be everywhere: a trick of scheduling, rather than by design. VANYA will be followed in December by the release of ALL OF US STRANGERS, a film in which he stars with Paul Mescal and Claire Foy.
