Ireland looks absolutely spectacular in a photo shoot Barry Keoghan has done for UK magazine Dazed

Killing it.

Part of @hollywoodreporter Next Gen Actors List 2018 - nice one 🇮🇪☘️

A post shared by Barry Keoghan (@keoghan92) on

BARRY KEOGHAN IS getting used to being a cover star at this stage.

He was named in Variety’s top 10 actors to watch for 2017 during the summer, and his role in The Killing of the Sacred Deer is taking him to new levels in Hollywood.

As part of the winter issue of Dazed Magazine, writer Simran Hans has done a feature-length profile of the Dublin actor titled “The strange allure of Barry Keoghan”.

And the photo shoot for it really shows Ireland off at its most spectacular

They drafted in an owl to be a part of it

As ya do 🦅🦅 🐺, we got on @dazed #louisvuitton

And the final shots, as shared by Barry, are excellent

Here’s some behind the scenes shots of Barry and the owl in perfect harmony

“Your owlone”

According to the profile, Barry and girlfriend Shona were behind the look of the shoot:

She and Keoghan came up with the locations for the shoot, suggesting their favourite spots in Killarney, like Ladies View, and a disused house that was bombed out and used by the British army while fighting the IRA.

The results were pretty spectacular

It turns out that Shona is the reason that Barry chooses to live in Ireland instead of making the move to LA:

I come home and there’s no airs and graces about me. I’m back to being Barry. That’s why I’m staying here in Ireland – I’m surrounded by good people and I want to keep my feet on the ground.

M'Lady!🐺 @shona_guerin ❤️

Other snippets from the profile include the fact that he still keeps in touch with his Dunkirk co-stars:

We do have a WhatsApp group. It’s called ‘Funkirk’

It is even a Whatsapp group without a pun in the name?

Keoghan also revealed his suspicion of social media – despite his Instagram and Twitter feeds being a consistent source of comedy:

More followers and that blue-tick thing. They said that it’s officially me. It’s madness, that blue tick. Like, oh yeah, now he’s real! Ridiculous.

Defintiely no airs and graces then.
