Gabriel Byrne

16 November 2020

As a young boy growing up in the outskirts of Dublin, award-winning actor Gabriel Byrne sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city. Join Gabriel for this exclusive event as he shares an exquisite portrait of an Irish childhood and a remarkable journey to Hollywood and Broadway success. From leaving home at eleven years old to join a seminary in England and train as a Catholic priest, to finding a haven in the local cinema where he could finally an imagine a life beyond the grey world of ’60s Ireland. In conversation with Una Mullally, Gabriel will explore how the theatre and poetry of Dublin’s streets inspired an extraordinary forty-year career in film and theatre. Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and reflections on stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway, he will also courageously touch upon his battle with addiction and the ambivalence of fame. By turns hilarious and heart-breaking, this event is a homage to the people and landscapes that ultimately shape our destinies.
