Aside from The Witcher: Blood Origin, Laurence has been working steadily since 2014.

On the small screen, he featured in Red Rock, Vikings, Game of Thrones and Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope. He also starred in films like The Secret Scripture and Black ’47.

However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Laurence was forced to taking up a gig as a doorman at Brown Thomas as he was out of work.

After getting the role in Blood Origin, he took the hat with him as a reminder.

Speaking to The Irish Examiner he said: “I brought the top hat with me. Just as a reminder. ‘Don’t get ahead of yourself. There’s going to be long days. Don’t complain about the work – do you want to wear me on Grafton Street in the rain again?’”

Does he have social media?

It looks like he won’t have to return to Brown Thomas anytime soon as he has already landed his next gig.

Deadline has reported that he will star in an adventure horror thriller named Creepers.

Creepers follows a group of young urban explorers who plan to investigate an old, boarded-up, seemingly abandoned hotel, only to encounter danger at every turn in the form of a competing group of hostile urban explorers seeking to find a legendary hidden treasure – as well as a supernatural being who wreaks havoc on all.


Until then we’ll be rewatching his scenes in Blood Origin!
