From Harry Potter to Star Wars to Ex Machina, Domhnall Gleeson is no stranger to genre films. But one of the unifying factors of his career isn’t the type of films he’s made, or the roles he’s taken. No, what’s followed him throughout his years is something else—the frequent mispronunciation of his name. Well, it’s time to put that to rest.

While visiting EW’s offices recently, Gleeson took a moment to offer the definitive and, more importantly, correct way to pronounce his name. Future interviewers and fans lucky enough to meet him take note: You’re about to learn whether the “M” or “N” is said aloud. At the very least, just don’t call him “Downhill Gleeson.”
