He doesn’t have a character listed name but Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson is listed as being in the cast of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”Today is his birthday as he turns 32.
Gleeson has been part of a big franchise before as he’s in both parts of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”
His other credits include “About Time,” “Dredd” and “Anna Karenina.”
His most recent project is “Ex Machina” where he plays a computer programmer who must deal with a robot with such an advanced state of artificial intelligence that she comes across as being very human-like.
Never miss a local story.
Gleeson’s co-star in “Ex Machina” is Oscar Isaac who will play Poe Dameron in “The Force Awakens.”
Happy birthday Domhnall Gleeson.
