15 Reasons Domhnall Gleeson Is Your New Favorite Ginger

The Irish actor stars as an adorable time traveler in About Time. Accent + Rom-Com? Prepare to swoon.

1. Domhnall Gleeson stars as the earnest and sweet Tim in About Time, the new movie from Love Actually director Richard Curtis.


2. You probably first saw him and his luscious ginger locks as Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

3. Or maybe you caught Domhnall and his beautiful beard lovestruck as Levin in the 2012 remake of Anna Karenina.

4. But be prepared to fall in love with his character, Tim, in About Time.

5. Tim’s dad (Bill Nighy), tells Tim on his 21st birthday that the men in their family can time travel, and Tim decides to use his gift in the name of love.


6. He’s endearingly awkward as he tries over and over to make the perfect moments happen with his love interest, Mary (Rachel McAdams).


7. And super heartfelt as he discusses the meaning of his gift with his dad.

8. The movie is as much about the relationship between Tim and Mary as it is between Tim and his dad, and Domhnall nails the nuances of each relationship.
