Actors Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan with Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy, middle

Further to yesterday’s Olympic-themed Late Late post.

Tomorrow”s guest list now includes Anthropoid co-stars Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan [in a pre-recorded live interview], in which Dornan tells host Ryan Tubridy:

“The fame aspect that comes with being a working actor does not intrigue me in the slightest. I think something like being Irish helps, and my friends. There’s just no allowance for it… In your life, no matter what happens or how much notoriety you gain through your work, the fundamentals of your life don’t change. I hope not. 

“Your wife, your kids, your family and your friends, all that stuff, the stuff that makes you, doesn’t change. On nights like this when you go to a premiere and it all seems crazy, it’s all very heightened but every day is totally normal. It’s just a job, you go to work and do your job and then that’s it.”



The Late Late Show is back on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.

Previously: Staying In Friday?

Thanks Gareth Naughton

    I swear that looks like they photoshopped Tubridy’s head into the picture.

    Maybe Tubs forgot to change to his Worzel Gummidge BigGrin#43 head at the time.

    He is right. Its one of the good things about being IRISH we actually dont think your any different because your famous. We’ll begrudge you the same as we would the man next door.

      Nick Cave tells a good story about that. He was at Liss Ard or some festival or other and on stage he said that he knows that Irish people always leave famous people alone. He knew because around 50 people had come up to him to tell him so when he was having a quiet pint in a pub.

        Very good. Although I remember seeing Liam Nelson and his wife(afew years ago now) in Grafton street and honestly I cant renember one person stopping them or annoying them. Now saying that im sure if it was David Beckham they would have been swarmed, we’re a selective bunch.

          Beyonce and Jay-Z were left alone when they visited a few years ago. To the point where US trash mags/programs were wondering if Irish people even knew who they were.

      Ha ha! Pre-recorded Live.

      Live to whoever else was there at the time, but for everyone else its pre-recorded, ha ha. What an idiotic term.
      Live can only be assigned to a Live broadcast.

    A far cry from the old late Lates with the likes of Peter Ustinov, John Cleese, Bill Murray, various Catholic bishops and fledgling boy bands. When did it get so trite and plastic?

    jesus christ that’s a sandwich I could get into. without Tubbs, obviously. He can stand outside and cry.
