After working for years on stage, film, and television, as one of the great character actors, Ciarán Hinds finally received long-overdue recognition from a major awards body for his performance in Kenneth Branagh’s “Belfast” with an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Ciarán plays a version of the director’s grandfather growing up in 1969 Ireland and brings a level of wit, warmth, and humanity to the role in ways that have strongly resonated with audiences. He was kind enough to take some time to talk with me about receiving the news of his Oscar nomination, working with Judi Dench for the first time, what Branagh’s film means to him, and more. Be sure to please take a listen and enjoy! Thank you.
