Paul Mescal has revealed that he and his Normal People co-star Daisy Edgar-Jones recently met up to rewatch the hit show – and they had a genius drinking game to go with it.
It was the first time they’d seen the show together, after lockdown restrictions made it impossible for the pair to get together earlier this year.
‘We hadn’t actually watched it together, Daisy and I. Because of lockdown, we hadn’t done that, so last week we got together and watched the whole thing through,’ he told GQ.
It turned out to be a boozy session, with Paul revealing the inspired game the pair played together.
‘We actually ended up playing a little drinking game: every time Connell wouldn’t complete a sentence or any time Marianne would make an emphatic statement that made Connell uncomfortable we did a shot.’
He added: ‘It was very special to get to do that with her. The thing we shared – will always share – is so unique.’
Paul and Daisy both gave star-making performances on the Irish coming-of-age drama back in April. The series was adapted from the acclaimed novel by Sally Rooney.
The chemistry between Paul and Daisy won fans over on the show, and their first audition tape recently resurfaced online.
