Barry has said:

Heroin came into Dublin, and it caught every family. My mother was one of the unlucky ones. She got caught on it, then she passed away… [He and his brother were subsequently raised by their grandmother] She’s a tough one… I’ll come home off a film set where I’m getting pampered, and I’ll get a slap in the head if I don’t make my bed. That’s what I love about her.

His surname is pronounced kee-own.

He has a son with his partner Alyson Kierans.

    He could be Joel Edgerton younger brother.

    No to isn’t. It’s pronounced ‘kio Gan’ and I know because it’s. My mother’s surname. And she isn’t Jewish. Neither is Barry.

    He should be held up as an example to the numerous American posters here who think only people of Asian descent can have “Asian” eyes.

    It’s pronounced Barry Cohen, of course.

        It’s pronounced ‘KYO-en’, with the emphasis on the first syllable. A very small minority of Keoghans may have decided, at some point, to differentiate themselves by pronouncing it ‘KYO- gan’, especially if they had emigrated somewhere, like America. But here in Ireland – as is the case with Barry Keoghan – it is generally pronounced ‘KYO-en’
