Despite landing him in hot political water, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor couldn’t be prouder of his starring role in IRA prison breakout film, Maze. Love/Hate, the superstar-studded Avengers: Infinity War and Ellen Page are also up for discussion as he meets Stuart Clark
Tom Vaughan-Lawlor is turning a none too delicate shade of beetroot as I remind him of what Bryan Cranston said last year after they’d appeared together in the Pablo Escobar drug lord biopic, The Infiltrator.
“Tom was an absolute dream to work with,” the multiple Emmy-winner purred. “His sensibilities and his instincts were always on point. He’s chameleonic in his performance. It was a masterclass and he will conquer wherever and whatever he does in the future. He was a genuinely warm guy, but that’s what you always get with the Irish.”
“Er, yeah, um, that was very gracious of him,” Vaughan-Lawlor mumbles into his glass of mineral water. “It’s always nice to make a genuine connection with the people you work with, and Bryan made sure that the shoot was a very happy, productive one. I spent the first couple of days thinking, ‘It’s Walter White!’ but then I got over the Breaking Bad thing. Well… almost!”
