It’s said that on St. Patrick’s Day, everyone is Irish. Sometimes in the movies, it feels that way.
While I do like films set in Ireland, we don’t need those movies to find Irish talents in movies and TV. They are everywhere and always have been, both in front of and behind the camera.
So as St. Patrick’s Day approaches, I thought I’d draw attention to the Irish who entertain us. They have become a most welcome part of our movies and television, sometimes without our knowing that they were born and/or raised in Ireland or Northern Ireland.
