In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, TheCelebrityCafe.com presents 10 of the most honored Irish actors and actresses. From Peter O’Toole to Maureen O’Hara, these actors have enthralled us with their riveting performances and dashing accents.
Many became famous from popular television such as Game of Thrones and Once Upon a Time. Others, such as Maureen O’Hara, have been performing since black-and-white films. Many were awarded by the Academy Awards and Golden Globes, and many will continue to be nominated as they continue enthralling us.
Although we recognize most of these actors by their English accents, some have performed in films set in Ireland. Maureen O’Hara performed in the countryside of The Quiet Man (1952), and Liam Neeson reenacted Ireland’s 1920s revolution in Michael Collins (1996). Some, such as Pierce Brosnan, have lived most of their lives in England, but all these actors have one thing in common: They were born in Ireland.
To celebrate Irish heritage, we present to you the top 10 Irish actors and actresses.
