The US-Ireland Alliance will honour Irish actor Aidan Gillen at the upcoming 14th Annual Oscar Wilde Awards.

The annual Los Angeles, pre-Academy Awards event will be held at JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot offices in Santa Monica on February 21.

Dubliner Gillen is known to international audiences from an array of standout performances including turns on TV series such as HBO's Game of Thrones and The Wire.

He is currently working on the BBC/Netflix drama Peaky Blinders and is about to star in the Robert Zemeckis-produced History series Project Blue Book.

On the big screen, Gillen recently appeared in The Lovers and Maze Runner: Death Cure, and currently appears in Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

Also an accomplished stage actor, Gillen has appeared on the West End, Broadway and Dublin's Gate Theatre, earning a Tony Award nomination in 2004 for his role in the Broadway production of The Caretaker.

Trina Vargo, founder of the US-Ireland Alliance, said: "Aidan’s body of work is rich with a range of diverse and memorable roles that span television, theater and film. While his career his taken him to London, Los Angeles and beyond, he has remained loyal to working Ireland as well."

The Oscar Wilde Awards is equally known for introducing Irish musical talent and 2019 will be no exception with the Irish band Vinci set to perform. JJ Abrams will return as emcee, fresh from filming the next Star Wars movie.
