‘Dunkirk’ Actor Aneurin Barnard The Latest Actor To Join ‘Goldfinch’ Adaptation | Film News


Welsh actor Aneurin Bernard is the latest actor tapped to join Amazon’s adaptation of Donna Tartt‘s The Goldfinch. Bernard broke out in Christopher Nolan‘s wide-acclaimed Dunkirk, and joins fellow young breakout star Ansel Elgort in the film.


Directed by John Crowley from a screenplay adapted by Peter Straughan, the film follows the journey of peril seen by Theo (Elgort) who, after surviving a terror attack in an art museum, finds himself attached to a certain painting – and a world of crime.


Barnard will play Boris, the cosmopolitan son of a Ukrainian émigré, whom Theo befriends at school. The pair embark on boozey afternoons and petty crime, which only grows as the two get older.


Before Dunkirk, Barnard’s only other notable role was in the BBC adaptation of War & Peace. This next role, with the anticipation around the film, will likely launch the young actor into a world of greater opportunity.


The Goldfinch will go into production at the start of 2018.
