Narrating the series
Domhnall Gleeson, 32, is an Irish actor, director and writer, eldest son of actor Brendan Gleeson. He has had notable successes over the past ten years, both on stage and screen but you are most likely to recognize him from one of a growing list of blockbuster movies: as Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; Caleb in Ex machina; General Hux in Star Wars or Andrew Henry in The Revenant.
“The BBC’s nature documentaries have always been inspiring and fascinating to me. To be involved with one is a delight – even though nobody actually wears spectacles in the documentary” -Domhnall on narrating the series
Domhnall sat down with Hunger TV alongside his co-star Will Poulter to talk about “The Revenant“. We have added the photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the interview can be found below.
Setting aside space sagas and superhero schlock, The Revenant is about as big a film production you could possibly get right now. With director Alejandro González Iñárritu still basking in Oscar success with last year’s Birdman and arguably the biggest movie star in the world in Leo DiCaprio hell bent on winning one of his own, it’s been long expected that this would be a special project. Factor in an epic, archetypal Hollywood storyline (revenge!), some of the most astonishing photography you’ll see on the big screen, thanks to cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and 65mm film, plus a fantastic supporting cast and you have something pretty spectacular to divert your attention for two and half hours.
We spoke with two members of the cast, the ever-excellent Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter, to discuss just how special an experience it was to make a film with such a punishing schedule and lofty ambitions.
Domhnall attended “The Revenant” UK premiere earlier this week at Empire Leicester Square in London alongside his co-star Will Poulter, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Paul Anderson and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

The exceptionally talented, tall, and dashing Domhnall Gleeson dominated 2015 as an actor. Domhnall joins Josh this week to talk about his sketch comedy past, Brooklyn, Ex Machina, and portraying General Hux in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There will be spoilers!
Domhnall attended a special screening for “The Revenant” earlier this week in New York alongside his co-stars Arthur RedCloud, Forrest Goodluck and Leonardo DiCaprio and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. We have added the high quality images in our gallery.

“It’s weird to say that you have a crush on your father, but I have a professional crush on my dad, Brendan Gleeson. He’s fearless. I thought he was gorgeous in the film In Bruges, though he didn’t come to a very nice end. As his son, it’s kind of difficult to watch.”
Domhnall’s screentest interview can be found after the jump.
We have additional production and official on-set images of “The Revenant“, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Brooklyn” in our gallery. We also replaced previous added stills with better quality.
Domhnall and his co-star Alicia Vikander attended the 2015 Moet British Independent Film Awards earlier this month. Domhnall was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his work in “Brooklyn” but he lost to his father Brendan Gleeson. He took the stage to accept the award on behalf of his father. He later accepted the award for his “The Revenant” co-star Tom Hardy for Best Actor. Domhnall’s other movie “Ex Machina” took home several awards, including for Best British Independent Film and Best Director.
