“Emma Corrin, you are a force of nature, I love you very much… Thanks to my mum, my dad, my brothers, my beautiful girlfriend for putting up the ca chaos of this career that I feel incredibly privileged to be a part of,” he went on to say.
“Finally my grandparents, my grandmother who passed a few months ago and my grandfather Peter O’Connor who hopefully watch this in the morning, your kindness and loyalty has been the greatest gift. Thank you so much,” he added.
