Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal’s ‘strong chemistry’ in Normal People audition

Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal became household names after appearing in the BBC worldwide hit Normal People.

The pair who went on to stun viewers with their remarkable chemistry appeared to click straight away in their screen test which has since been released.

In a video released by the official Normal people Twitter account, Daisy, 22, and Paul, 24, perfected their characters who fell in love despite the divide between their social groups.

Normal People became the second most-viewed show of 2020 when it was released on BBC iPlayer in April this year.

It also took home the title of the raunchiest BBC show with over 41 minutes of sex scenes.

In the clip, as his character, Connell, Paul reveals his insecurities around women, admitting he doesn't; "go after" them, saying: "Stuff like this usually doesn't happen in my life, I'm actually quite awkward around girls, to be honest."

After Connell reveals that he knows Marianne has feelings for him, the footballer goes on to say that he would be "p****d off", if she met somebody else.

Following years of cruel remarks, Marianne's insecurities take over as she questions: "You don't mind that I am ugly and flat-chested then?"

Hurt by the comments, Paul's character wraps his arm around her and says: "I am so sorry they said that to you., they don't even think that themselves."

Fans couldn't contain themselves after the video was released, with hundreds taking to social media to praise the two actors.

One fan tweeted: "They both are such talented people and have such strong chemistry. The absence of decorations in this scene makes it so much more real and present."

While a second went on to say: "Totally meant to work together on this. Very intune with each other! No better job than a job where you & your colleagues fit like a jigsaw & in acting massively important I'd imagine! Would love to see them working together again."

"This is an absolute treat. You can't force chemistry between two actors. They either have it or they don't & these two have it in abundance. I really hope they work together again in the future," said a third.

Fiona Campbell, Controller for BBC Three hailed the series "a modern masterpiece".
