Each individual who makes the list has a tribute written for them by someone in their industry and for Paul that was the one and only Colin Farrell, who had nothing but praise for the young actor.

"The first time I saw Paul perform, what moved me was his ability to stand in silence and take in the world around him so I could experience it through him. I was riveted, and it has been the same in every performance since."

He also praises the "indelible honesty" of Paul's work.

He concluded his note with: "It is the sincerity of his every word and gesture that makes me so excited for what he's yet to share with us."
