In 2017 Patrick Gibson won the IFTA Rising Star Award and deservedly so. He took the world by storm with his performance as Steve in the popular Netflix series, “The OA”. Since then he has starred alongside Idris Elba the mini-series, “Guerilla”, featured in the popular Young Adult film, “The Darkest Minds”, is about to be seen on the big screen again, in Tolkien, and is now back as Steve in Season 2 of Netflix’s “The OA”.
We chat about the lengths he went to to get the part of Steve, why he turns to reddit for answers to “The OA” ending; how he feels about the possibility of a “Stranger Things” & “The OA” crossover; his new feature film, “Tolkien”; and living the dream.
The OA: Part II is available on Netflix now.
“Tolkien” is coming to cinemas soon.
