Here is the wonderful interview by the renowned Gay Byrne, talking with the amazing Gabriel Byrne, from 2010. You get two Gabriel Byrnes in one video!

 

 

Note from Stella: The original video posted here was locally-hosted and took some time to load. Now the Internet Archive has made this available, so that is what you see above. I believe I have posted this interview at least three times over the years, but I don’t like to remove the postings because then we lose the comments!

Please do leave a comment. This is touching and engrossing stuff and is sure to spark a response in most of us. So share!

    Nice interview and interesting comments from Mr. Byrne (our Gabriel). For him the meaning of life is much more than movies, fame or something else. For him, the meaning of life is live well and solid principles.

    It’s an interview which shows him to be contemplative and he discusses subjects which are rarely discussed openly in order for others to be able to discuss them too.

    It ‘s about our humanity and I agree with the comment about vulnerability too.

    I like many,first noticed Gabriel because of his wonderful dark Irish looks and lovely voice!.But this very quickly changed. I find him to be wonderfully aware and highly intelligent.Listening to him impart his aquired knowledge is always a joy and his words always seem to come from a place of ‘real’ truth..So very rare now a days.

    If I’d had a brother, he would have been Gabriel Byrne. I suspect that evoking a connection that deep is what makes him a great actor. I am grateful for the experience.

    Hi, love hearing you Gabriel and you speaking truth. If you ever read the messages on this site it is my wish that some day I would have the pleasure of sitting with you over a coffee. Courage and strength, inspiring and brutally honest. It is an honour to be living in the same time as you….I have a question……If there was a way through being in a state of consciousness in the presence of others and you could find a peace and joy free from depression and alcoholism would one be curious to know how to attain it……..
