Daisy Edgar-Jones has praised her Normal People co-star Paul Mescal after being nominated for an award at the Golden Globes.

The actress was shortlisted in the best actress in a limited series category for her role as Marianne in the hit programme.

Edgar-Jones said she is “in absolute shock” after being nominated for the award.

She added: “It’s also been one of the biggest privileges of my life to have worked across from Paul Mescal, I was blown away every day by his generosity and incredible talent.”

The nomination “truly means the world”, she said, adding: “I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to play a character as complex, spiky, deep and wonderful as Marianne”.

Normal People, which was adapted from the Sally Rooney novel of the same name, focuses on the on-off relationship between Irish teenagers Marianne and Connell, who is played by Mescal, beginning in their school days through to their time at university.
