Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

People say The Wire's bleak, y'know, but I see it as a love letter to Baltimore, and it's one written in a very strange and complex way. See more »

Trivia:

Echoing his earlier work 14 years previous in John Michael McDonagh's short film "Second Death", Aiden Gillen repeats his exaggerated and threatening karate-moves in a similar bar scene toward Brendan Gleeson in Calvary - also by John Michael McDonagh. See more »
