25 years old and starring in the BBC's Normal People, an adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Sally Rooney.

The sex scenes show A LOT. You see his ass and his flaccid dick. Nice chunky muscular body.

Does he have the Irish curse?

What's that, R2? He has a big dick if that's what you mean.

Here's the trailer if you want to check him out. The Guardian gave the series a 5* review.

Irish guys are usually hot until they hit 30, unless they leave Ireland and the UK.

R7, they can easily run to fat as happened with One Direction's Niall Horan. But this guy is pure muscle and obviously works out a lot so I doubt it will happen.

r8 trust me, it will! It happens to all hot Irish guys when they hit 30, unless they leave Ireland and the UK. I don't make the rules!

Until 30 though - hot, usually big cocks, gorgeous faces and bodies.

It's a TV drama called Normal People and it's on the BBC iplayer.

Too bad the Irish thing. Small dicked drunks with stank sleeves aren't in great demand.

It's a brilliant series. Very slow but faithful to the book and heartbreaking. The actors playing Connell and Marianne are going to be huge stars off the back of this. It's huge here in the UK, even with people who didn't like the book.

It's excellent! So poignant and poweful. The aesthetic is shades of teal and grey throughout. Very arthouse and French film.

They did erase Marianne's eating disorder, though. She was a plump teen in the book and only got skinny at uni through barely eating. In the TV adaptation, she's rail thin throughout. The actress playing her reminds me of Dakota Johnson.

I also thought they didn't explain why her family hated her so much. If I remember the book correctly, didn't they blame her for her father's death?

Obviously they made her mother and brother absolute cunts but unless I missed something, they didn't explain why? There was also a weird sexual aspect to her brother's abuse in the book that wasn't in the tv series.

He’s seriously cute. I had to Wikipedia him when I first found out about this show to make sure he was over 18.

Very hot! Looks like Niall Horan a bit, if he'd muscled up instead of flabbing out.

Another bloody awful BBC drek hetero love story with heavy accents.

Why on earth would people on DL be interested in a show called "Normal People"?

& a heterosexual love story, yet.

He's gorgeous, I think he stole the show at some points...

I never got the acclaim for this book. The story has been done so many times, and their story went nowhere, they keep breaking up for the dumbest reasons then getting back together and then breaking up again. Its an enjoyable beach read, sure, but why is everybody raving about it?

I admit that all of the acclaim it's receiving makes me want to watch. I gave up on the first episode after fifteen minutes, but I think it's pace deterred me because I just came off watching the very busy and very violent GANGS OF LONDON.

I thought the father abused the mother and Marianne, and the brother's abuse of Marianne was continuing the "tradition" of the man in the house abusing women and the mother refusing to do anything about it.

I also think the abuse was mainly meant as an explanation for why Marianne expects to be mistreated by men and why she's almost disappointed when she isn't mistreated.

by Anonymousreply 3104/30/2020

He's quite good, but the actress who plays Marianne is astonishing at going from a teenager to a woman in her mid-twenties.

What struck me as odd watching the first few episodes was how the show kept alluding to Connell being a genius... But they only mention things like his getting high marks... The actual character never does or says anything that seemed remotely intelligent however. He was also quite aimless... Not very clever or savvy/cunning either... So it felt like there was some disconnect between how intelligent the show kept reiterating he was and how intelligently he actually behaved.

by Anonymousreply 3405/01/2020

He behaved like a typical potatohead Paddy, and spoke like one too. At the start of the show he looked much too old to be 18, but had got thinner by the time he was supposed to be 22.

In the novel, Marianne is overweight as a schoolgirl, which is one of the main reasons why she's ostracised and why Connell is ashamed of sleeping with her. She becomes anorexic in uni and barely eats. Her self loathing leads to her encouraging guys to hit her during sex.

The TV Marianne is a Dakota Johnson lookalike, rail thin from episode 1, and remains so. Very small breasts, whereas in the book Marianne has large breasts (which is why that nasty guy grabs one at the party).

by Anonymousreply 3505/01/2020

The obligatory diversity casting also went against the novel. Helen, Connell's girlfriend, isn't supposed to look like Yoko Ono, or be an uglier version of Marianne. She's a white middle class girl.

The Swedish photographer is a tall, icy blond, not a scrawny black guy who looks like a crack addict. Jamie seemed too ferret like to attract Marianne, although her posh boyfriend Garrett was well cast.
