Paul Mescal Is Starring In A New Channel 5 Thriller
Fresh from his star appearance in Normal People, owner of our favourite chain Paul Mescal will be back on our TV screens soon.
In a teaser trailer for Channel 5's new drama show, The Deceived, it's described as a mystery thriller and we can't wait!
The show focuses on a student in Cambridge who falls for her lecturer and moves to Ireland.
Also starring Emmet J. Scanlan as university lecturer Dr Michael Callaghan, Emily Reid as student Ophelia and Catherine Walker as Michael's wife Roisin.
When Roisin dies in a house fire, Ophelia suspects that all is not well and that she may still be alive.

With the help of Paul's character, McKeough, Ophelia tries to find out what's going on.
Fellow actor Ian McElhinney, who also plays the grandad in Derry Girls, said of the story: "She's very insecure when she ends up in this environment, because she doesn't quite know is it her own mind that's playing tricks, or is there something strange about the whole community and the whole place?
"It's a kind of a gaslighting story." Sounds intriguing!
Normal People aired on the BBC earlier this year and fans soon became obsessed with the on-off relationship between students Marianne and Connell (played by Mescal), so much so that the chain now has its own Instagram account.
The Deceived will air on Channel 5 later this year.
