If you want to get an idea of where Barry Keoghan's career is headed in the near future, this is as good a marker as any.

It's been confirmed today that Dublin's own Barry Keoghan is now on Variety's annual 10 Actors To Watch list, placing him alongside previous winners like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone and fellow Dubliner Domhnall Gleeson. As for this year's list, Keoghan ranks alongside Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya and The Big Sick's Kumail Nanjani.

Considering the year Keoghan's currently having, it's no surprise. As well as working on two heavy Oscar contenders - Christopher Nolan's World War II epic Dunkirk and Yorgos Lanthimos' ultra-creepy The Killing Of A Sacred Deer - Keoghan still has Irish revenge Western Black 47 still to come, and he's been pretty open about the fact that he wants to play Nightwing / Robin next to Ben Affleck's Batman.

You can read his profile on Variety right here, and here's our interview with him for Dunkirk.
