Paul Mescal has been nominated in People Magazine’s Sexiest Man List alive list for 2021.

The Kildare native shot to fame in 2020 after appearing as Connell Waldron in the television adaptation of Sally Rooney’s bestselling novel Normal People.

The series quickly took the world by storm during the first Covid lockdown, and Mescal’s heartthrob status was cemented when he donned his now iconic silver chain onscreen.
