Barry Keoghan, who was at eternal is at The Batman, was arrested in Ireland for disturbing others when he was drunk. The actor has gained recognition in recent months for participating in two big movies from different franchises, playing Druig at Marvel and a surprise role at DC. However, while he has several potential new projects and a chance to continue in the MCU and potential sequels about Robert Pattinson’s hero, the Irishman just made headlines for a different reason.
According to Ireland’s Independent, Keoghan was arrested in Dublin on the morning of Sunday 10 April over complaints by a resident about a man outside his window. When authorities arrived, they found the 29-year-old actor intoxicated.
“Gardaí arrested a 30-year-old man for a public order incident that occurred in Clongriffin at approximately 6:45 am on Sunday, April 10, 2022. He was later released without charge and received an FCN (Fixed Charge Notice)”, read a statement from the local police.
According to people who witnessed the incident, the actor did not pose a threat. They also said that the authorities appeared following reports of a drunk man on a balcony. However, the incident appears to have been finalized and resolved.
In August of last year, Barry Keoghan was also involved in another incident in Ireland, this time as a victim. He rushed to a hospital after being the victim of a knife attack in Galway.
In eternal, released in December of last year, Keoghan played Druig, an immortal being who can use cosmic energy to control people’s minds. He distances himself from the other Eternals because he disagrees with their interactions with humanity. Already in The Batman, he participated as a prisoner of Arkhan who remains without being explicitly shown, but who is implied to be the Joker. He is only seen in a deleted scene from the film.
eternal is available on Disney+.
