Paul Mescal is many things: a talented actor, the internet’s boyfriend, wearer of chains and O’Neill shorts. Just don’t call him British.
It’s been a big week for Mescal after he received his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series for his performance in the BBC’s acclaimed adaptation of Normal People. While he celebrated his nomination on social media, he also shared a more direct tweet which simply stated: “I’m Irish.”
