Keeping up an English accent for the entire day was the secret of Domhnall Gleeson's success in his starring role in Lenny Abrahamson's new film.

'The Little Stranger' had its European première last night in the home city of both leading actor Gleeson and director Abrahamson, with Dublin's Lighthouse Cinema doing the honours.

Gleeson (35) stepped out with his co-stars Will Poulter and Ruth Wilson and said getting the British accent perfected for his character Dr Faraday had been "a tricky one". "I tend to keep the accent going during the day as well to make sure I don't slip out of it. I think it's been holding up under scrutiny," he added.
