Domhnall Gleeson is making his way onto the small screen having already won our hearts in his various movie roles.
The actor, who is renowned for his role in the ‘Star Wars’ series, has been tapped to star in ‘Run’ from ‘Killing Eve’ creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge and her frequent collaborator Vicky Jones.
The romantic comedic thriller pilot features Waller-Bridge in a recurring role and is written by Jones. Waller-Bridge and Jones will executive produce via DryWrite with Entertainment One (HBO’s 'Sharp Objects') producing for HBO, and Emily Leo for Wigwam.
According to Deadline, “‘Run’ centres on Ruby, a woman living a humdrum existence who one day gets a text inviting her to fulfil a youthful pact, promising true love and self-reinvention, by stepping out of her life to take a journey with her oldest flame.”
Gleeson will play a successful life guru from a wealthy Irish family who is “born with the gift of gab” and “deftly combines a boatload of charisma with a boundless need for approval.”
The Irish actor is also due to star in Andrea Berloff’s ‘The Kitchen’, with Elisabeth Moss, Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish.
He can currently be seen on the big screen in ‘The Little Stranger’, directed by Lenny Abrahamson. You can check out our interview with the actor and director for the film here.
The duo will be guests at Culture Vultures, the regular salon-style chat show hosted by journalist Tony Clayton-Lea, at The Sound House venue on Eden Quay (above The Wiley Fox) this Thursday, September 27th.
