The cast of The Siege of Jadotville have opened up about what it’s really like to work with Jamie Dornan, revealing that he’s an absolute pleasure to have around.
The movie, which was produced by Netflix, is a historical drama which tells the story of the Irish UN battalion that underwent a siege during the 1961 disturbances in the Congo.
Jamie, who plays the lead role of Pat Quinlan in the film, was joined by his co-stars Sam Keeley, Jason O’Mara, Ronan Raftery, Michael McElhatton, Conor MacNeill, Mike Noble and Charlie Kelly on the red carpet, as well a number of veterans, who were involved in the Siege of Jadotville 55 years ago.
Opening up exclusively to VIP Magazine, Jamie’s cast mates gushed about the star, who has turned out be a life-long friend to a number of them.
Ronan Raftery, who is set to star alongside another Irish star, Colin Farrell, in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was thrilled to work alongside Jamie, and said, “He’s great. Jamie’s the best.” While Mike Noble chimed, “He’s a lovely man!”
Jamie had worked with a number of the cast members such as Sam Keeley and Michael McElhatton, previous to this movie, and they were all delighted to be reunited.
Michael told us, “Jamie’s lovely. I’ve worked with him a few times, on a few things. He’s a real gent, and a pleasure to work with.”
The Siege of Jadotville was released in selected cinemas around Ireland yesterday, and will be available on Netflix from Friday, October 7.
