Paul gushed over his girlfriend, whose identity is being kept secret.

He said, 'To have someone to lean on through such a mad, mad time has been invaluable.'

'Really, I don’t know where I’d be without her,' the 24-year-old confessed.

Paul shot to fame following his performance in Normal People earlier this year.

In the space of a couple months, he's starred in a music video for The Rolling Stones, performed a live stream show at London's Natural History Museum with Dermot Kennedy and is now gearing up to star in Maggie Gyllenhaal's directorial debut The Lost Daughter.

Paul really struggles with fame

Paul told British GQ he has struggled with his newfound fame.

He explained, 'At first you think, ‘Oh, this is a bit glamorous,’ when someone is taking a picture of you buying ready-to-eat avocados and cigarettes at the off-licence, but soon enough you feel it begin to infiltrate your brain.'

When asked how, he responded, 'Just bulls**t like caring what I was wearing before leaving the house.'

'As an actor I think you need to remain fairly anonymous and I found the lack of anonymity difficult.'

'I also don’t think a lot of those photographers are particularly nice; I can’t just shrug off the stuff they say to elicit a response.'

Paul admitted, 'I know it’s all a game for them and these are very First World problems, but I’m not comfortable with it.'

'Neither are my family. When my mum is seeing more of me on social media than she is of me in person, you realise you have become public property. It becomes a problem.'

'No one gave me a rule book on how to deal with all this stuff.'
