Hollywood star Matt Damon is living in the Dublin suburb of Dalkey after he flew in to film Ridley Scott's new movie The Last Duel.

The 49-year-old has been spotted shopping in supermarkets and hanging out by the sea in Dalkey as he isolates in Dublin.

Locals have spotted him around the seaside town in recent weeks - but they're well accustomed to famous faces, given that Bono and Enya both live nearby.

Living in isolation shouldn’t be that much of a challenge to Damon, given his film-making history.

In 2011 he starred in the drama Contagion, in which a group of medical experts race against time to stop an unknown virus that causes a global pandemic.

In scenes somewhat similar to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the Steven Soderbergh-directed movie deals with a killer virus outbreak that's spreading across the globe.

Damon also played an astronaut stranded alone on Mars after being left behind by the rest of his spaceship's crew in the 2015 sci-fi movie The Martian.
