Normal People’s Connell and Marianne have divine reunion

Normal People stars Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones hilariously reprised their roles as Connell and Marianne on RTÉ Does Comic Relief on Friday night, with their perma-complicated relationship receiving some input from a most surprising special guest.

Warning: spoiler alert!

With director Lenny Abrahamson back behind the lens, and playwright Conor McPherson going meta with author Sally Rooney’s characters, this was just like the series: it left you wanting more.


The unexpected postscript to the TV drama phenomenon of the year began with Connell still struggling to express himself – this time in the confessional!

  1. What a great mini-Film reprise of these great characters. Very funny take-off if tortured and complicated relationships having divine intervention.
