So this was me setting up Google Hangout to Chemistry read for a massive show with a fantastic actress in LA. Long story short, the read was great, she was great, and it was 1 of 4 amazing shows that I weirdly and somewhat fortuitously found myself in the final stages for, simultaneously..... It was also the last one to pass on “me”( whoever the fuck he is) and “go in different direction”. Now while that might sting for a bit, for me it only ever stings for a moment. Because the reality is, I was there. I was in the mix. And fuck me if that doesn’t feel a little special.... And as attractive as these parts were, they were just another dancing partner moving to the beat of a different song... and that’s ok. but for the experience alone I am so utterly grateful. Peace and love gang. #Gratitude #Believe #ThankYou
Really wanted to do something original and iconic for my 700th post, like me waiting for a coffee in a coffee house. but forgot and posted a @garethandshelia video instead. Stupid pricks. #701
Now sporting their own page, @garethandshelia like to think they’re changing the world with their words of wisdom.... they really annoy me if I’m being honest, but give it a follow if you like smiling...
This BEAST. I love him. Breaking me down & building me up again.... Sure I look bigger. Meaner, maybe. But this guy??? Is the last guy you wanna fight and the first guy you want to teach you how... Personally I could take him. If we were both on the street. And I was in a car. My brother @antony_pendlebury #Shotokan #Wolf #Beast #GoHardOrGoHome
In 1828 Burke & Hare murdered 16 people. This October we show you how. Ladies & gentleman, I give you AMAZONS new series #Lore. Hugely proud & humbled to be part of this... #gratitude #BurkeAndHare #AmazonPrime
Today’s image was taken on set in Prague, where I played the infamous WILLIAM BURKE, 19th century serial killer. One of Scotland’s most famous. Thank you HERTZ studios the SHARP PROJECT, for once again welcoming me into your ADR booth to polish off the finishing touches to Amazons new series LORE... coming soon... huge love and gratitude to all involved..
“Burpees are my friend, burpees are my friend” was my thought process moments before taking this photo. Which incidentally was only moments after getting sick #SickFriendship #Beasting

I said, CRETE BABY!!!!
1 year ago I shot a wee indie movie called LAPWING.... Yesterday Lapwing’s truly ridiculous director and now dear friend Philip Stevens called over to Chester to drink and eat with my family. A date long overdue... He brought with him an almost completed version of the movie. Now I don’t watch me any more, haven’t for years; so the little bit he showed me he was very selective about... but none of that mattered, because the courage he marinates in to let scenes breathe. And the look??? The look was something sublime... It took me back to a time, a perfect pocket of time, that I won’t ever forget. A time that as actors or humans we very rarely get, driven by a collective creativity, everyone in tune with each other. I ain’t been this excited about the possibility of a movie since Charlie Casanova back in 2011. This video has nothing to do with any of that, and everything to do with the family we became as a result. The material was so dark we had to do things like this, we had to find the laughter in between the takes...Sandwiched between lead actress and powerhouse Hannah Douglas & make up legend Taryn Gladding as I endeavour to teach the unteachable “Shoulder Dance”.. ye either got it or you don’t. #ThrowBack #ThrowingShapes
It looks like I’m reaching for the phone. But I’m not. This is my celebration face, this is my “put the fucking phone down and pass me the champagne” face.... the irony of having my phone on me to type this isn’t lost on me..... but today’s a good day... today’s #LaurentPerrierDay
Thing is, after all the “mental” we’ve squeezed into such a short time of being together, sucking the marrow out of life, @joetracini1 taking a selfie of me eating his head yesterday, is the most “normal” thing we’ve ever done... today marks the anniversary of me taking him to the Priory. 6 years ago, today. If only we had a script that could in some way touch upon those experiences together... oh wait, he does, we do.... Dangermouse & Penfold coming soon, definitely in our lifetime. If we live that long.... #Scars #Friendship #MoreScars #Better
Hollywood Baby!!! Follow @garethandshelia
That’s a wrap.... #WomenOnTheVerge #Gratitude
This is perfect. My dad & daughter have come down to watch my last scene of the series #WomenOnTheVerge being shot here in Dublin. I played it cool.
FaceTime with my little nephew Emmet lasted all of 4 seconds before he literally ate the fucking phone
Playing Hide & Seek. @claire_e_cooper is like a black belt at this... @garethandshelia
Throwback to London Photoshoot with my brother from another mother @rioromaine. Not sure what I’m doing with my finger but I’m assuming I’m searching for my jawline; result still pending.... love to the team @brookesimonsmua @steviebstylefashion & assistant whose name escapes me now. Lovely girl. I’m sure Stevie will remind me, fucking RUBY... literally came to me as I was typing, @ruby_elkins
