Barry Keoghan hits the red carpet with Cillian Murphy and Harry Styles for Dunkirk London premiere
BARRY Keoghan has come a long way from the controversy that engulfed him after his character killed a cat on hit RTE series Love/Hate.
His star is continuing to rise as he posed on the red carpet last night for the premiere of his latest film, Dunkirk.
The much-anticipated movie - directed by Christopher Nolan, of The Dark Knight and Inception fame - also stars fellow Irish actor Cillian Murphy, One Direction singer Harry Styles, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy.
Confident Barry (24), who hails from the north inner city, showed off his boxing moves on the red carpet as a female friend accompanied him to the world premiere of the film in London's Leicester Square last night.
Barry plays a young boy who helps ferry injured soldiers on his boat from the beaches of Dunkirk during World War II.
The film tells the story of Operation Dynamo, which saw thousands of Allied soldiers from the UK, France, Belgium and Canada evacuated from the beaches of Dunkirk as the German army advanced towards them between May 26 and June 4, 1940, in the early stages of the war.
"There were times when I was sitting on the boat with Cillian, and there were planes coming toward us and we really did think the planes were going to hit us," Barry said previously of his time shooting the war epic.
Barry, hailed by Hollywood insiders as the "next big thing", boxes three times a week and has recently taken up photography.
He last graced the red carpet in May during the Cannes Film Festival alongside Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell. Their film The Killing Of A Sacred Deer earned rave reviews.
