It’s that point of 12 months once more! *spins, twirls* We’re asking that age-old query: Who’s your superstar crush? Mine is CUTE…
Irish actor Daryl McCormack. I first noticed him alongside Emma Thompson in Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, the British comedy-drama a couple of retired instructor who hires a intercourse employee. McCormack was past charismatic with an lovable half smile — and now says he and Thompson are “finest associates.”
Additionally, he’s humorous! In a Vogue interview about his childhood in Eire, McCormack reminisced about how he’d make his grandmother snigger a lot she’d need to “hobble into her en suite.”
This fall, once I flipped on Sharon Horgan’s gripping darkish comedy Bad Sisters (have you ever seen it?), I used to be thrilled to see McCormack stroll onscreen as a hunky insurance coverage agent. Actor Brian Gleeson, who performs his brother, instructed the New York Times that initially McCormack couldn’t preserve it collectively by means of their scenes. “Daryl is a giggler all proper, however clearly a consummate skilled,” Gleeson mentioned. “At one level, Daryl simply sort of burst out laughing. But it surely had an important impact of enjoyable all people… He’s received a stunning light type of disposition.”
Ultimate confession: I’m a sucker (a SUCKER!) for an Irish accent. Generally, on unhealthy days, I take lengthy walks, get recent air, and hearken to podcasts that includes Irish comedians. One of many episodes that has cheered me up over time options a nine-minute Moth story by an up-and-coming Irish actor about his mother. An actor who’s, I just lately realized, none aside from Daryl McCormack.
So! Who’s your superstar crush lately? Spill the beans beneath…
