Just when we thought we couldn’t love Domhnall Gleeson anymore, he goes and stars in Burberry’s new Christmas campaign and does an absolutely stunning job.
Starring as Thomas Burberry himself, Dublin born Domhnall plays alongside Sienna Millar, Lily James and Dominic West in the mini movie, which is three and a half minutes long.
The Tale of Thomas Burberry tells the story of the designer and the milestones that his clothes achieved, including being used by aviation and military professionals.
Burberry CEO Christopher Bailey spoke to Vogue.com about the release of the short film, and the legacy of Thomas Burberry.
“The film we have made is a brief glimpse inspired by his full and extraordinary life, which threaded its way through the history of the twentieth century in all its tumultuous highs and lows. His spirit and his vision are still at the heart of everything we do at Burberry today,” he said.
Domhnall also spoke about his participation in the ad, saying it was an honour to have worked with such talented people.
“Christopher is obviously an incredibly gifted designer, but he’s also a really good man, and I love that. To work with him and his team and Asif (director) and the amazing crew and cast was an honor because I got to be a part of something really creative and exciting with a team of people who are each at the top of their field.
“Coming together to bring the story to life was a brilliant experience, and also somehow managed to be very fun,” he said.
