Jack Reynor wins ‘Sundance’ award for role in Glassland
Irish actor Jack Reynor is continuing to wow an international audience, adding a major award to his collection.
Bray star Jack Reynor won the World Cinema Special Jury Prize for acting at the 31st Sundance Film Festival in Utah last night.
Reynor received the award for his role in Gerard Barrett's film Glassland about a young man struggling with his mother's alcohol addiction.
Jack (23) appears as a young taxi driver who, in an effort to save his mother (played by Toni Collette) from addiction, is forced to take a job which drives him further into the crime underworld.
The Transformers star is currently filming The Secret Scripture in Ireland, with co-stars Rooney Mara, Aidan Turner and Theo James.
Next up for the 23-year-old actor is a part in Irish film ‘Sing Street’ alongside Aiden Gillen, while roles in international blockbusters including Macbeth and Jungle Book in the pipeline.
The unassuming Wicklow native recently celebrated his birthday in Lillies Bordello with a bash thrown by his fiancé, model Madeline Mulqueen.
It is believed the pair will say 'I Do' at some stage this summer in an intimate ceremony in Limerick.
