On the red sofa of The Graham Norton Show on January the 18th, celebrity guests were in attendance including Laura Linney, Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chamlet, and Stephen Mangan with musical guests The 1975.
Laura Linney is known for many films and TV series from the popular Netflix show as the unscrupulous Wendy Bird in Ozark to her role as the unlucky-in-love Sarah in Love Actually to The Truman Show, You Can Count on Me, and Mystic River.
On the show, she discusses her role in Love Actually and how she was incredibly happy filming when she got to kiss Rodrigo Santoro. She said both actors were down as they’d both been dumped and were both broken hearted, which added a sweetness to the scene, Laura notes. Watch the clip to hear the story.
Unlike many actors who go on the show, Laura didn’t opt for a suit, but instead a soft tailored, light-fabric button-up dress. With her soft hairstyle, stunning red lips, and pretty dress, Laura looks fabulous.
Saoirse Ronan discusses how she entered a competition as a child and won a trip to Florida. She had to call in to a famous Irish radio DJs, Gerry Ryan, show at the time and say something as one of the Shrek 2 characters. Saoirse decided she would try her hand at the Gingerbread man. Take a look.
American-born Irish actress Saoirse wore a one-sleeved black and white gown with stunning detail on the right shoulder and down the arm. She went on the show to discuss her film Mary Queen of Scots in which she plays Queen Mary Stuart herself. She’s a well-known actress, known for roles in On Chesil Beach, Brooklyn, The Lovely Bones, and many others.
American actor Timothee Chamlet is known for his roles in Lady Bird, Interstellar, and Call Me by Your Name. Timothee opted for a casual look on the show with a black jumper with a knitted skull pattern in red with black trousers. He discusses a statistics rap he did when he was in school.
Irish English actor Stephen Mangan is known for his role as Guy Secretan in the medical comedy Green Wing. The video clip isn’t the best quality (best to go to the BBC website to see the latest look), but Stephen wore a very sharp and classic suit on the show. He opted for a classic grey single-breasted suit with notched lapels, a classic white shirt, and a maroon striped tie. Watch from 25 minutes onward.
