The Irish star, who currently lives in London with wife Dawn, admitted that he could give up life in the Big Smoke to settle down and start a family.

"Maybe. I like the idea of it but someone might need to be convinced," he said on the set of new film Calvary in Rush, County Dublin.

"We try not to talk about settling down yet. I think I've scared her enough!"

Chris - who next stars in Australian musical The Sapphires - is enjoying working back in Ireland for Sky series Moone Boy, and his new film Calvary, which also stars Brendan Gleeson, Kelly Reilly and Aidan Gillen.

Hundreds of locals turned up to watch the filming, as a mock church was burned down in the village.

"It's great. There was a period of about seven years where I was only here for Christmas and separate religious occasions, so being here for a stretch now is nice because it means you properly get to see people," he said.

"Sometimes you can feel like a tourist in your own country if you're only coming back for a little while so it hasn't felt like that," he added.
