Eurovision: Rachel McAdams says 'one-take wonder' Graham Norton should 'consider' future in acting

Rachel McAdams has shared her verdict of Graham Norton's performance in Netflix’s Eurovision film

The presenter cameos in the new comedy as a commentator of a fictional version of the song contest, in which characters played by McAdams and Will Ferrell are participating.

McAdams told the BBC she was “so upset” to miss Norton filming his scenes as she was in make-up, but heard that he impressed everybody on set.

“I mean, he knocked it out,” she said, adding: “You know, he’s like a one-take wonder, that guy.”

When asked if she thinks he has a future in acting, McAdams said: “I think he should consider it if things go south on the show.”

McAdams, who has appeared on Norton’s BBC1 chat show numerous times, said: “I love him so much – I just think he’s so wonderful.”

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, which also stars Dan Stevens and Pierce Brosnan, will ve available to stream on Netflix from 26 June.
