So! Did you eat too much Halloween candy? Stay up too late watching Hereditary? Fall asleep waiting for Trick-or-Treaters who never knocked on your door?
Whatever your All Hallows’ Eve experiences, it is now November and the Race to the Holidays has begun!
The always-moving-at-light-speed Mr. Gabriel Byrne is . . . well, I don’t know WHERE he is, actually, but I’m fairly certain he has finished shooting both Season 3 of War of the Worlds, in England and Wales, AND his latest film, the biopic Lamborghini, in Rome and other lovely places in Italy, so he might be home. Where is home, you ask? More on that later.
For now, I hope he, and you too, will enjoy a lovely Fall season and bright and festive holidays. More on that later, too, probably.
In the meantime, here is The Byrne-ing News!
Death of a Ladies’ Man Update
Our favorite film to anticipate has been screening at USA film festivals this fall. In fact, Gabriel Byrne was just awarded the 2021 Jury Prize for Best Actor at the Newport Beach Film Fest, another win for his stunning work in this unique film.
So, we want to see it! Where is it!? Anticipation is driving us C R A Z Y !!!!!
Producer Corey Marr tells me:
Our sales folks are still working on it and won’t be until 2022. We want everyone to see it but the pandemic has been a real challenge for indie cinema all over the world! I will keep you posted.
Mr. Marr is very kind to respond to my pleas on Twitter, isn’t he? And I know he is working hard to get this film out to us. So we must continue to be patient. Think of it as a New Year’s gift. Or perhaps a Valentine’s Day gift. Or . . . you get the idea!
In the meantime, Germany can anticipate this:
I believe filming for the new Lamborghini biopic has completed, but I can’t find the Instagram that tells me this is true! So, let’s wait and see. A new cast member was added mid-October, so shooting may still be on-going. I think Gabriel’s part is done now.
Here is Gabriel Byrne as Enzo Ferrari on, or near, the set, brought to us by Chiara Collia, the luckiest woman in Italy:
NEW Irish Arts Center Opens in December
The Irish Arts Center in New York City will open its new building and inaugurate its new season of arts programming in December!
This is the best news. heart
Gabriel Byrne has supported the IAC Capital Campaign, “Almost Home,” for the past decade. He has presided at annual fundraising galas, donned a hard hat for construction tours, wielded a shovel at the official ground-breaking, made videos, ads, and other media in support of the campaign, and generally offered his support in any way possible to help make this new building, and the vision it embodies, a reality.
And now it is.
Next time you are in New York City, make it a point to visit this new home for all that is Irish in the Big Apple–and beyond!
Wanna Buy a Cool Condo?
Now you know that we here at Byrneholics Online discourage bad fan behaviors such as stalking, invading someone’s privacy, gossiping about their private life, etc.
I could not let this go by without noting: Our favorite Irishman is leaving New York City!
Well, what we know is that he is pulling up stakes, as we say here in Texas, and putting his gorgeous condo in NoLita on the market, for a gastronomical amount (that’s an amount that’s so astronomical it makes your tummy hurt).
Of course, once you see the pictures of this beautiful abode, the price seems appropriate. The kitchen alone is worth hocking your current home and heading off to Manhattan (and I have a great kitchen already)! Close proximity to the Little Cupcake Bakeshop is a plus, too. Yummy.
You can check out American Luxury Magazine for a treasure trove of pics of this lovely home (well, you could, but their article is no longer available on the Internet. Sorry).
I do want to share a few pics with you, though, along with some observations. I don’t think we’re encroaching too far on Mr. Byrne’s personal space. I hope not, anyway.
First, the Living Room:
The floor. The spaciousness. Those windows. That fireplace. Wonderful.
Note especially, though, that chair with its lamp, and that painting.
Haven’t we seen the chair and the lamp before?
And the painting seems familiar as well, no?
Finally, this is the Guest Room. It probably began as the nursery, and then morphed into their daughter’s room. I don’t mean to be nosy, but look at the poster! I love that Cannes 2015 poster, with Ingrid smiling at us. What a special festival that was! It’s lovely to see it displayed here.
I hope all of these things find their way to Maine, or Ireland, or wherever Mr. Byrne decides to “put down stakes” next. Moving is an upheaval and a pain in the ***, but the end result is home. Happy New Home, Gabriel! heart
There is more news, but you’ll have to wait a bit. I have been working on other projects and my wrist is a mess. Typing is, shall we say, challenging? So hang on and Part Two will come your way soon.
Meanwhile, here is a Flirty Gabriel in Fall Wallpaper. Enjoy! heart
