Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal entertained the crowds at All of Us Strangers’ UK Gala Screening on Tuesday evening.

The Irish film stars walked the red carpet at BFI Southbank together as they celebrated the emotional BAFTA-nominated film, ahead of its release date on Friday, 26th January.

All of Us Strangers follows the story of lonely screenwriter Adam (Scott) as he begins a relationship with his mysterious neighbour Harry (Mescal) and deals with the sudden appearance of the ghosts of his long-lost parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell) at his childhood home.

Andrew and Paul’s natural chemistry on and off-camera has been going viral online recently, and speaking with and other press at Tuesday night’s red carpet, the pair gave their reactions to this phenomenon.

“I think I knew our chemistry was there before we filmed even though we hadn’t really had the chance to exercise it,” Paul said. “I’ve also never worried about that, so it’s a really interesting thing having spent weeks talking about this chemistry that we’ve never spoken about, that everybody seems fascinated by!

“But if people are taking that from [the film], it’s great,” he added. 

Andrew shared: “We’ve had a really good time. You know, it’s sometimes hard to talk about films on a press tour, and it’s really nice to just have someone that you can have a really good laugh with.

“And not just a laugh,” he continued. “But to bring a film like this, which at the end of the day is a really important film [to the public]. And I think it makes people of all different persuasions feel better about life, and it’s emotional in the best way. 

“It’s about love,” he continued. “It’s a love story. And we just hope that everybody enjoys that chemistry, not just on TikTok, but also on the big screen.”

All of Us Strangers will be released in cinemas on Friday, 26th January.
