Robert Sheehan has gushed about Ruth Negga.
The actor starred in RTE show Love/Hate with the Oscar nominee, where they played each other's love interests.
"We hadn't spoken in a while but we were chatting the other day a bit," he said before admitting he e-mailed her after her heard about her Academy Award nomination.

The pair developed a strong friendship on the show and both moved to L.A. to pursue their individual career goals.
"How fantastic is that? I actually watched the movie the other night and she just broke my heart in two in the film," he told Today FM's Ian Dempsey.
"She's magnificent, she's brilliant."
