Normal People actress Aoife Hinds has revealed how she and breakout star Paul Mescal got caught up in an ugly racist attack while filming the hit TV series on the streets of Dublin.

Aoife told the Sunday World how she regrets that she and co-star Paul did not confront the group of young thugs who targeted her while she filmed scenes as Connell's lover Helen in the hit show.

The twentysomething actress is the only child of acclaimed Northern Irish actor Ciaran Hinds - who has starred in Harry Potter and Game Of Thrones - and his actress wife, Helene Patarot.
