"I was on a walk in a park close to where I live," he recounted. "It's an odd thing because you have to also broach the kind of social distancing thing. So you can say 'yes' to a photograph, but also you have to kind of do it selfie style so you're standing two metres apart. So there's a lot of negotiating going on!"
Normal People continues on RTÉ One on Tuesday nights. The adaptation of Sally Rooney's bestseller is available to watch on the RTÉ Player.
