Celebs are trying their best amid this quarantine to not only stay entertained and positive themselves but also do the same for their followers and fans. While musicians are performing for virtual shows, actors have been indulging in some reading online. While Sir Patrick Stewart left us super impressed with his sonnet recitations, recently Fleabag actor Andrew Scott also appeared in a video where he was seen Irish poet Derek Mahon's "Everything Is Going to Be All Right.” Scott performed this as a part of Emilia Clarke's series of poetry readings for COVID-19 relief.

The actor who recently became the internet's boyfriend after starring in the role of the 'hot priest' in Fleabag left netizens lusting after him with this recent video. In the post, Scott is seen dressed in casuals and looking effortlessly charming as he recites the poem that seems to be the need of the hour. At one point in the video, Scott in a sun-kissed frame as he says, "How should I not be glad to contemplate/the clouds clearing beyond the dormer window/and a high tide reflected on the ceiling?”

The beautiful, breathtaking talent that is Andrew Scott reads for us ‘Everything is Going to be All Right’ by Derek Mahon. Andrew has asked to dedicate this to Men Against Cancer Ireland @menagainstcancer Andrew we salute you! 🕺 It comes under the prescription for need for reassurance. Here’s how it reads as written in the book @thepoetrypharmacy @thepoetryremedy There are moments in life when the banal suddenly, and quite without warning, becomes the transcendent. Perhaps a shaft of afternoon light paints a familiar view an unfamiliar gold; perhaps dust in a sunbeam or the dance of sparks above a fire transport you, for a long instant, to somewhere else altogether. The almost magical-seeming reflections of ripples on a ceiling are transfixing in just the same way. In moments like these- awe-struck moments when the ferocious beauty of the everyday catches us unawares- we are often moved to a reassessment. One flash of sunlight can be all it takes to give us the sense of possibility that can change everything. As a great sufferer from depression myself, I find a small moment like this, a sudden splash of serenity and beauty, can provide the impetus needed to run my mood around. Not completely, perhaps, and not permanently- but sometimes a small push is all any of us is waiting for. Derek Mahon’s poem ‘Everything is Going to be All Right’ describes wonderfully the feeling of that little push and reassessment. And there’s something hugely powerful, too, about its final line. When my children are suffering and I hold them in my arms, it seems to be the most natural mantra in the world: Everything will be all right. There’s a comfort to those words, whether or not they’ll prove to be true. OF course, some wounds don’t heal, and some wrongs go un-righted. But in the grander sense, in the everything sense, things to tend to be all right. Too often, our pain is either in our heads or magnified beyond all proportion. If we can learn to manage it, if we can find that oasis of calm in the reflection of the waves, then we might find that out problems are not as all-consuming as we imagined. Thank you thank you Andrew! 😘
