Gabriel Byrne

Irish actor Gabriel Byrne stars in DANCE FIRST, the new Samuel Beckett biopic, which will screen out of competition at the 2023 San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain on September 30. Despite all the adulation that came Beckett’s way he was a man acutely aware of his own failings. In 1969, having been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, an embarrassed Beckett simply wanted to be rid of it. Other Irish actors featured in DANCE FIRST are Aidan Gillen, Lisa Dwyer Hogg, Bronagh Gallagher, Gráinne Good, and Barry O’Connor.
