Last night saw the premiere of Chris O’Dowd’s new Australian-set comedy The Sapphires. Joined by cast members Jessica Mauboy, Deborah Mailman, Shari Sebbens and Miranda Tapsell as well as director Wayne Blair, Chris O’Dowd spoke briefly on the red carpet about his role in HBO’s Girls and the upcoming second season. ‘It (filming) just finished up now, I did about one or two episodes. Can’t really talk about it but it was a lot of fun.
On Moone Boy‘s success and its comparison to Father Ted at such an early stage, Chris said ‘that it’s the highest compliment you can get.
The Sapphires is released on 2nd November and Moone Boy Season 1 goes on sale next week.
