Earlier this month, Daisy Edgar-Jones shared her and Paul Mescal’s original audition tape for Normal People on social media.

“Stuff like this usually doesn’t happen in my life,” Mescal says in the clip, in character as Connell. “I’m actually quite awkward around girls, to be honest.” Later, Connell expresses his insecurities over thinking Marianne doesn’t want him around.

In a five-star review of Normal People, NME wrote: “It’s the chemistry between Mescal and Edgar-Jones that mostly manages to keep the show from sinking too deep into melancholia. For all its raw emotion and underlying sadness, this is a heartfelt love story that radiates warmth from the very start.”

Normal People will be released on DVD in the UK and Ireland on November 2.
