Irish superstar Colin Farrell will be attending the Irish Film and TV Awards next week, a spokeswoman has said.
Reports had circulated that Farrell, who is up for Best Actor in a Lead Role for his part in the upcoming movie, “Ondine,” would not be present at the event.
"I can confirm that Colin Farrell is attending the IFTA awards Ceremony and he is delighted with his nomination,” the IFTA spokeswoman told Dublin’s Evening Herald. “He has been confirmed to attend the ceremony for about a month now."
The awards ceremony takes place in the luxury Burlington Hotel in Dublin on February 20. Farrell is expected to take home the prize for his role in “Ondine,” the Herald reported.
Farrell met his partner Alicja Bachleda on the set of "Ondine," and she recently gave birth to a son, Henry. The film, which is out in March, has had positive early reviews.
It tells the story of a fisherman who falls in love with a mermaid when he captures her in his nets.
Where does the term “the luck of the Irish” come from?
