“People went from hating me in ‘Normal People,’ to liking me in ‘Dating Amber.’ Which was good,” says Fionn O’Shea. The 23-year-old actor starred in one of the buzziest projects to come out of Ireland this year, the Hulu miniseries “Normal People.” While he played the abrasive and antagonistic Jamie, European audiences shortly after got to see O’Shea step into character as the much more empathetic Eddie in another Irish project, the film “Dating Amber.”
“I’m more like Eddie in ‘Dating Amber,’ thankfully, than I am like Jamie in ‘Normal People,” he adds. “The one thing that’s a through-line between the two [characters] is that they both are extremely anxious and insecure — and the way that they deal with that is very different.”FUN FACTS
