PSA: The Young Offenders' Chris Walley is up for one of the most prestigious awards in theatre

No better man.

HIS PORTRAYAL OF Davey Clavin in The Lieutenant of Inishmore was the subject of widespread acclaim last year, and this week Chris Walley is celebrating an Olivier Award nomination for the role.

And yep, the Oliviers are the most prestigious and coveted awards in British theatre; say no more says you.

Chris, who is perhaps best known for playing Jock O’Keeffe in The Young Offenders, took to Twitter in the wake of the announcement yesterday, and told fans and followers he was ‘delighted’ with the nomination.

The 24-year-old is up against Keir Charles, Adam Gillen, Adrian Lukas and Malcolm Sinclair for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

Written by Martin McDonagh, who was globally lauded for his film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri last year, The Lieutenant of Inishmore ran on the West End in 2018.

Chris has been flat-out thanking social media users for their words of congratulations since the news broke yesterday.

The Olivier Awards will be taking place in the Royal Albert Hall on April 7th.
