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:
With Christian Bliss
With this gentleman whose Instagram handle is unique!
With Larry Ferguson
With Renee Garvens
With Sandra Schuurhof
With Tia Trione
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
