Gabriel Byrne
Gabriel Byrne was born in Dublin and has starred in over 80 films, including “The Usual Suspects” and “Dead Man.” He won a Golden Globe for his performance as therapist Paul Weston on the HBO drama “In Treatment,” and has also been widely recognized for his theater work. Byrne’s memoir “Walking with Ghosts” is an exquisite portrait of an Irish childhood and a remarkable journey to Hollywood and Broadway success. The book follows Byrne from his childhood in the outskirts of Dublin, to seminary in England where he hopes to become a priest, to his growing interest in theater and poetry in 1960s Dublin. Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and reflections on stardom in Hollywood and Broadway, Byrne also courageously recounts his battle with addiction and the ambivalence of fame.
