A former teacher of Michael Fassbender's has said his "roguish smile" could get him out of trouble when he was in primary school.
The Kerryman has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in this year's Oscars, thanks to his performance in '12 Years a Slave'.
Deputy Principal of Fossa National School Linda O'Donoghue, who taught Michael in 4th class, said: "Michael was a lovely, charming young boy. He was very bright, had interest in the arts and history and loved singing.
"He'd a very roguish smile always. Many's the time if he got into trouble, his roguish smile would get him out of it."
