Thirty-three year old Domhnall Gleeson who caught our eye in the Harry Potter series as Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part I & II (2011) has had a very busy 5 years since the release of those films. He appears to be a humble guy as his biography at Internet Movie Database is fairly simple, a single sentence speaking of last years releases. Clearly the best is yet to come although last years was so good. He’s quoted as saying his only qualification for the role of Bill Weasley was his red hair. Luckily it wasn’t a bit of nepotism. He’s the son of actor Brendan Gleeson, who played character Alastor ‘Mad-Eye’ Moody in the Harry Potter series. Let’s hope the senior Gleeson was nothing like his character during Domhnall’s upbringing. And the name is pronounced Do-nal, a variation on Donald and Gaelic, meaning Ruler of the world.

Almost a shawl collar, interesting.
In 2015, he was to act in 4 Oscar nominated films, Brooklyn, Ex-Machina, Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens (as General Hux) and The Revenant.
In the year 2014, there’s no shortage of work either, there’s a Harry Potter short, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, Cavalry, It’s About Time and Frank. The year before, 2013, Gleeson was featured in About Time and television series, Black Mirror. Then 2012, another 4 films including Anna Karenina, in which he played Levin (with Keira Knightley and Aaron Taylor-Johnson).
A bit peaky.
There’s nothing like a bit of hustling, attracts a lot of cheerleaders and fans, so we’re all rooting Domhnall. Next year, there’s more heavy hitters lined up. Star Wars: Episode VIII, an un-named Darren Aronofsky film (probably the most exciting), A Futile and Stupid Gesture and Mena. Another four, clearly there’s a system..

In the meantime we get to enjoy those ginger good looks, the lanky physique and slightly aloof manner. There’s a guy that doesn’t sit still long that is alluring to watch and just seems to be having a good time.
And he looks good in clothes.
All eyes on Domhnall Gleeson.
