Daisy-Edgar Jones looked every inch the Hollywood star as she walked into the Stella Theatre in Dublin this week in her Miu Miu archive dress and Tiffany and Co jewellery.

The English actress returned to her “second home” of Ireland for the premiere of her new film, Where the Crawdad Sings. Oh, and she revealed where exactly her favourite spot is when she visits!

She stopped to chat to VIP Magazine on the red carpet before heading inside to watch the highly anticipated flick. However, she was certainly feeling sentimental as she walked through the familiar streets of Dublin.

“I definitely would consider Ireland a second home. It’s been two years since I’ve been here,” she confessed.

“Last time I was here we were doing reshoots for Normal People, I feel very nostalgic. I am actually staying like five minutes away from where I used to stay.”

Unfortunately, it is just a flying visit for our Daisy as she flew into Dublin on Tuesday morning and will return to the UK on Wednesday.

“I just flew in this morning but I’m going to definitely go somewhere and get a Guinness tonight!”

However, she adds that she really wants to spend some time here in Ireland when things settle down for her. Which may never be coming as she is the hottest property in Hollywood.

This year alone the 24-year-old has starred in Disney+’s horror film Fresh, is bringing the bestseller Where the Crawdads Sing to the big screen with the help of producer Reese Witherspoon and will return to the small screen in true crime drama Under the Banner of Heaven.

Of course, chat turns to Paul Mescal who she just saw on Monday: “We’re definitely best friends. Me, Paul, India and Fionn from the show [are all good pals].”

He may have been the one to introduce her to her favourite spot in Ireland which just so happened to be Xicos nightclub as she tells us: “It was one of the best nights ever!”

Speaking about adapting the massively popular book she admitted that there was also a “bit of pressure”.

“So many people already love the character and love the story. You just hope you can capture the tone of it and that you can bring a different angle to the characters and that audiences will feel the same when they finish the film as they did when they finish the book.”

Where the Crawdads Sing hits cinemas on July 22nd
