Irish actor Daryl McCormack. I first noticed him alongside Emma Thompson in Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, the British comedy-drama a couple of retired trainer who hires a intercourse employee. McCormack was past charismatic with an lovely half smile — and now says he and Thompson are “finest pals.”
