Paul Mescal has been named Best Film Actor at the British Film and Television Academy (BAFTA) Scotland Awards for his performance opposite young star Frankie Corio in Charlotte Wells’ Aftersun.
The Maynooth actor was not at the ceremony in Glasgow on Sunday night to receive his award, which was accepted on his behalf by writer-director Wells.
Aftersun also won the awards for Best Director Fiction and Best Writer Film/Television for Wells.
Earlier this year, Mescal was Oscar-nominated for his performance in Aftersun, the story of a summer holiday that becomes a milestone in the lives of a father (Mescal) and daughter (Corio).
