‘It has the ingredients to be a massive hit… and people have no choice but to watch it’ – Barry Ward talks Netflix series White Lines

Timing is everything in acting – and for Barry Ward, his two latest projects have landed at a strangely opportune moment. The Netflix series White Lines – a blackly funny crime drama based in Ibiza – has, thanks to the lockdown, something close to a captive audience. Dating Amber, a comedy film due out next month, is a story about two teenagers’ unorthodox relationship and is perfectly poised to capitalise on the success of Normal People. It even features one of that show’s stars, Fionn O’Shea, Marianne’s sadistic and patronising boyfriend Jamie.
