Domhnall Gleeson talks Star Wars, Ex Machina, while playing Star Wars Episode 1: Racer

Posted on

Domhnall Gleeson really cannot talk about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but that didn’t stop him from playing a Star Wars video game, Star Wars Episode I: Racer, during an episode of EW’s Q&Play. Gleeson may be sworn to secrecy, but we discussed his latest role in the impressive sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, along with some of his previous roles in the Harry Potter films and the TV series Black Mirror. Gleeson, who also took the time to tell EW how to properly pronounce his name (unfortunately this occurred after our interview), fired up his pod racer and talked about everything from working with Alex Garland to the experience of meeting the entire Force Awakens team—and the one thing he’d change about that initial reveal photo. For more episodes of Q&Play, watch Holly Taylor discuss The Americans, Elizabeth Henstridge talk Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Teen Wolf’s Shelley Hennig discuss the MTV show and her film Unfriended.
