Hugh Jackman reaches out to Paul Mescal

Wolverine's Hugh Jackman reached out to Paul Mescal following his success on Normal People.

The Irish star shared the news in an interview with E! following his Emmy nomination for Lead Actor.

Paul was asked whether he's had any celebs reach out to him since his success on the show.

He replied, 'Oh like tons, there's been tons of people that have reached out.'

'The one recently, I think two or three weeks ago, Hugh Jackman reached out and I'm a massive, super fan of him.'

'He sent the most gorgeous email and now I'm kind of pinching myself that I'm nominated in the same category as him and it just feels really surreal.'

Paul's Emmy nomination

Paul also spoke to the publication about his Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Connell in Normal People.

He said it's something he's genuinely struggling to comprehend.

'It just feels ridiculous to be totally honest. I feel like I'm cheesing or something. It just feels really, really exciting.'

Paul said he plans on celebrating with a few drinks, 'I will drink some alcohol and then, yeah.'

'That's as far as I've gotten in terms of a plan.'

He hopes to meet up with his co-star Daisy Edgar-Jones later in the week to celebrate.

Paul said he wishes, 'desperately,' that they could celebrate right now but unfortunately, 'she's not nearby at the moment.'

'I think I'm going to see her this week at some point so we'll celebrate then.'

The actor said, 'without question,' he'll be bonded to Daisy forever after this experience together.

Meanwhile, Irish Twitter users are fuming after some media outlets have been claiming Paul and fellow Irish actor Andrew Scott as British.
