Paul confessed, 'We hadn’t actually watched [Normal People] together, Daisy and I.'

'Because of lockdown, we hadn’t done that, so last week we got together and watched the whole thing through.'

He then revealed they played a drinking game while watching the series.

Paul explained the rules:

'Every time Connell wouldn’t complete a sentence or any time Marianne would make an emphatic statement that made Connell uncomfortable we did a shot.'

Paul played male lead Connell while Daisy played female lead Marianne in Normal People.

Watching the series together

The actor said they ended up talking over most of the show, 'just reflecting on particular days, costume changes, memories.'

'It was very special to get to do that with her.'

'The thing we shared – will always share – is so unique.'

Paul continued, 'Getting to watch it over with someone who had watched you work in such a detailed way was just eye-opening for us both, I think.'

'There was so much positive noise around the show when it came out, but I can safely say that we both worked incredibly hard to bring those characters to life, both for the sake of the production but also for our own careers.'

The 24-year-old admitted, 'We knew how much it was going to mean, to be honest.'

'We understood the significance and size of the job and that our relatively new careers would be judged for it in a very public arena.'
