See the Irish actor star in the video for The Rolling Stones' Scarlet, which features Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Paige.

Paul Mescal has starred in The Rolling Stones' Scarlet video.

The Normal People actor - who's known for playing the brooding Connell in the hit adaptation - has literally shaken off the role of the shy protagonist to star in Mick Jagger and co's latest visuals.

The socially-distanced video, which was helmed by directing duo Us, sees the Emmy-nominated actor thrust his hips and dance around a suite at London's iconic Claridge’s hotel.

Watch the rising star feature in the video above.
