the question remains on what will happen to mcdreamy when he ages up

nice i didn't know he was in this video. since Normal People, he also appeared on a Rolling Stones video. I'm sure people thought young Leo DiCaprio was just a pretty face back in the day. Things turned out great for him. Time will tell where Paul Mescal's career will go.

Paul recently won the Breakthrough Actor award at GQ Awards and watches the last episode of Normal People:

fwiw i despise the show a little bit because i was involved with a maryanne type IRL (an average looking, but lovely lady), and her s/o was a mcdreamy like a connell on normal people

maryanne is lucky to have a guy like mcdreamy, but mcdreamy can have whoever the hell he wants

anyway...

i'm sorry to hear that your maryanne chose mcdreamy. people are complicated in general.

since coming out of a long term relationship, i realised how complicated it is to date again. the roads have been bumpy here as well.

has anyone read Conversations with Friends? its written by the same person as the one who wrote Normal People

Its interesting how tv and movies only capture whats going on outside a person, it depends on a lot, ie a director, and the performance of the actor, but people are very good at hiding their emotions, or show one emotion but mean something else on the inside
whereas a book tells exactly whats going on

On Conversations with Friends, im fairly sure an older Connell could pull off Nick, but i dont know who would play Frances (aka the main character of Conversations with Friends)?

i haven't read it.

hmm yeah i agree. it is harder to portray the inside of a character. when it comes to tv/movie adaptation, the art of storytelling and the writing are so important.

fwiw they could adapt Conversations with Friends, it would be two seasons worth of tv for sure, the issue with Conversations with friends is, its not very long, so im guessing they'll slow it down (like normal people) and they'll have lots of long scenes without dialogue, and people walking in landscapes of ireland, or france

they can cast the guy who played connell as nick, give it 5 years and he should be not young nor old to play nick as described in the book. and nick is an actor, so connell from normal people fits the description of nick

however, im not sure who would play frances (the main character), bobbi or melissa though

frances is going to be very hard to cast because shes meant to be gay, but 'changes teams' , and bobbi whos gay, but is better looking than frances.

oh well

i personally miss Ireland terribly but yeah showing too much of landscapes won't make good tv.

we'll see how it goes with the adaptation.
