The star of Normal People got out of his “comfort zone” in a new short film.
This year, it feels like everyone has tried to pick up something new. Whether that be baking banana bread or joining a zoom pilates class in the morning, it usually is a short-lived experience. The lead actor from 2020’s Normal People Paul Mescal decided to take up dance in a new short film for phone company Samsung.
It sees him leap about a room filled with mannequins in a pretty bizarre fashion. It was followed by a statement where he noted that he is “not a dancer”.
Hey, he said it not us.
Creatively named Lockdown it’s the result of three intense days filming in London.
Talking about the film he said, “Movement is something I loved doing at drama school and something that I’ve missed doing since entering the industry.”
It follows Paul’s feature in the new Phoebe Bridger’s video for ‘Saviour Complex‘.
