The play’s the thing wherein we’ll catch Gabriel Byrne, to paraphrase (badly, I must say) Shakespeare!

Mr. Byrne is always meeting his fans: at film festivals, on the set of his various film and television projects, at public events. But when he is “trapped” in a stage production, well–we fans come out like moths to the flame because he is there, almost every day, and he must leave the building sometime!

I am no exception, as you already know if you have been keeping up with current events. wink

And I applaud him for his accessibility and his willingness to interact with people like me, who may have come from far away and who look forward to an opportunity to meet their favorite Irishman.

Fans share their captured Gabriels on Twitter and Instagram and we thank them. I should ask permission to post these here, but I do not really think anyone will mind, do you?

Here are the most recent examples of fans catching Gabriel during the last weeks of his work on Long Day’s Journey Into Night:

And finally, a colleague crossed the pond to see Mr. Byrne on stage and managed to elicit his biggest smile yet. Sibylla Deen stars with Gabriel in the new film Lies We Tell.

So, now you know. If you hear the news Gabriel Byrne is performing on stage in a play, run, do not walk, and get tickets immediately. You might catch him, as these lucky fans did! heart

  1. He is absolutely glowing in that photo with Sibylla. <3 (I love his shirt in that one, too.)

  2. He is very kind and natural. He takes the time to engage with each fan outside the theatre, no matter how tired he must surely be after such a lengthy and emotional play.

  3. Wonderful photos with Gabriel Byrne and his fans. I’m grateful to Mr.Byrne that he finds time to talk to them despite the fact he’s tired or rather busy at the moment. And all these comments give me the hope that it might happen to me one day :-)

  4. I really admire Gabriel Byrnes kind attitude towards his admirers and fans.
    It can not always be easy to take time to that when he is tired and just want to be alone.

    Thank you to all of you that have shared your precious moments with Gabriel here in Byrneholics or
    other places on internet. I appreciate that very much.

    And of course, especially thank you to Stella for sharing her own and other peoples “star moments”
    with Gabriel here.
