The young actor on working with Mark Rylance and Harry Styles in Christopher Nolan’s film, and being directed by Sam Mendes in The Ferryman
Tom Glynn-Carney, 22, plays a teenager who sets sail in a “little ship” with his father to rescue British soldiers in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. But by night, Glynn-Carney is also winning rave reviews on stage in the West End in Jez Butterworth’s The Ferryman, as a young Irishman caught up with the IRA. The Observer’s theatre critic,Susannah Clapp, described his performance as “feral” and “extraordinary”. As a child actor, Glynn-Carney appeared in Peter Pan at the Lyric Theatre Lowry and Macbeth at Manchester’s Royal Exchange, before studying drama at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
It took me a long time to master the Irish accent, and I wouldn’t say it’s flawless now
