Set in a period of invasion and social and political chaos perpetrated by the Tudor conquest of Ireland, the story of Eleanor, Countess of Desmond recounts the heroic efforts of a woman to protect her family against insurmountable odds. Aristocratic, educated, intelligent and able, Lady Eleanor Butler’s destiny was as a wife and mother. Andrew Garfield, a 33 year-old English actor who so accurately portrayed Doss's mannerisms, speech and humble personality, he could have been Doss's twin even though Doss was 10 years younger. Would Desmond approve of his portrayal? Yes. Would Desmond have judged Hacksaw Ridge as truthful? Yes. Did Desmond recover from his wounds? Yes. Luann de Lesseps. Luann De Lesseps is everyone's favorite countess. The model-turned-countess has transformed herself into an author, philanthropist, actor, and bona fide cabaret star. Luann authored the book Class with the Countess: How to Live with Elegance & Flair and is currently working on a follow-up.
