Irish Wish follows book editor Maddie (Lindsay Lohan) whose love of her life gets engaged to her best friend, and decides to puts her feelings aside to be a bridesmaid at their wedding in Ireland. A few days before the big day, Maddie makes a spontaneous wish for true love, only to wake up as the bride-to-be instead of her bestie. However, Maddie soon realizes that her true soulmate is actually someone else – nature photographer James Thomas (Ed Speelers).

When asked about learning more about photography after playing James in the film, Ed says, “I’ve always loved photography; I’ve always admired good photography. I’m a bit [of a] hit and miss. Sometimes I can take a good photo, sometimes I can’t. It’s something I always wanted to get more invested in. I’m not very good in the age of the selfie in terms [of] how we sort of document everything, I’m not the greatest at that.” Ed also discusses how his role in Irish Wish compares to his previous roles including in Star Trek: Picard and Netflix’s season 4 of You.
