Residents of the seaside town of Dalkey, Ireland, have found a new way to pass time during a lockdown: Spot Matt Damon.
Multiple Irish news outlets report the actor was abroad ahead of filming “The Last Duel” — Ridley Scott’s historical drama that reunites Damon and Ben Affleck in a medieval trial-by-combat — when the country went on lockdown to contain the spread of COVID-19 on March 27.
Damon has since been spotted out in the picturesque town of Dalkey, south of Dublin, by residents who are eager to discuss their new local celebrity.
“Matt Damon just jogged past me, going up Killiney Hill. He’s actually tall enough; normally those lads are tiny,” one man told the Irish Mirror on March 31. (Boston Globe)
