I saw that Irish actor Andrew Scott — aka the hot priest from Fleabag — would be in the upcoming adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love, and wondered what else he’d been in. Color me shocked that he’s actually done a decent amount of frock flicks! He’ll be starring in the upcoming feature film adaptation of the great medieval-set book Catherine, Called Birdy, as well as a 1960s-set follow-up to The Talented Mr. Ripley on Showtime.
