Irish heartthrob and “Normal People” star Paul Mescal has been one to watch in recent years. Heralded as an up-and-coming talent with a breakthrough Hulu series under his belt, he was always going places. And 2023 seems to be the year he has reached the top of the mountain after being announced as a surprise nominee for Best Actor at the 2023 Oscars for his moving turn as single dad Calum in Charlotte Wells’s father-daughter drama “Aftersun.” Although he lost out to Brendan Fraser, the accolade has cemented his position as an A-list star.

Mescal’s acting career started mostly on stage, starring in the likes of “The Great Gatsby,” “A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream,” and the world premiere of “Asking For It.” However, it was his 2020 television debut in “Normal People” that catapulted him into the public eye overnight. Playing Connell in the BBC adaptation of Sally Rooney’s novel caught the attention of legions of fans for his vulnerability and emotional range as an actor, not to mention his undeniable sex appeal.

Mescal has recently returned to stage his roots with a critically-acclaimed performance in “A Streetcar Named Desire” in London’s West End, which bagged him a coveted Olivier Award, too.
And the next few months also promise to be jam-packed for the star. This fall, he’ll star in two films: “Foe”and “All of Us Strangers.” Plus, he’s starring in the highly anticipated “Gladiator” sequel, which is set for release in 2024.

There’s no better time to explore Mescal’s on-screen work. Read ahead for a list of all the movies and TV shows you can watch to see Mescal show off his tremendous talent.
