Barry Keoghan is one of the most talented men out there in the entertainment industry. Born in Summerhill, Dublin, the Irish actor, 29 years of age, was raised in 13 different foster homes in seven years alongside his brother Eric.
He was interested in acting from an early age, which led him to join a local acting school in Dublin called The Factory. As years passed, he gained more experience, and his performance improved. Finally, he made his debut in 2010.
Since then, he has never looked back and has continued moving forward. However, the initial days in the acting business were tough. Keoghan first tasted the limelight in 2017 for his performance of Martin in The Killing of a Sacred Deer.
Following that, he has made his appearance in several renowned movies and TV shows such as Dunkirk, Black ’47, Chernobyl, and The Green Knight. In late 2021, Keoghan became a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Irish actor went on to portray the role of the superhero, Druig, in the movie Eternals. Although the film received mixed reviews from critics, fans loved Keoghan’s performance.

His amazing performance was followed by yet another great performance in 2022’s The Batman. In the DC superhero movie, he played the role of The Joker – a widely renowned nemesis of Batman. But, he only made a cameo appearance in the theatrical cut.
Nonetheless, weeks after the release of The Batman, a full-length scene involving Keoghan’s The Joker and Robert Pattinson’s Batman at Arkham Asylum was released as a deleted scene. Both of the actor’s performance in the short clip was highly praised by everyone.
It’s currently reported that Keoghan’s portrayal of The Joker will return in The Batman sequel. The role of The Joker was previously played by Joaquin Phoenix and the late Heath Ledger, who both went on to win the Academy Award.
