The Sheeran family

Frank's family are a crucial part of the movie, with the Sheeran women acting as a moral compass that Frank tries—and fails—to follow, leading to the film's downbeat ending.

Frank's first wife is Mary (played by Aleksa Palladino of Boardwalk Empire), who mothered his first three children Peggy (Lucy Gallina as a child, Anna Paquin as an adult), Dolores (Marin Ireland) and Maryanne (Tess Price as a child, Jennifer Mudge as an adult).

After divorcing his first wife, Frank marries Irene (Stephanie Kurtzuba of The Wolf of Wall Street), with whom he has a fourth child, Connie (Jordyn DiNatale as a teen, Kate Arrington as an adult).

Also starring in crucial roles are Breaking Bad's Jesse Plemons as close Hoffa associate Chuckie O'Brien, Power's Kathrine Narducci as Russell's wife Carrie, plus Fargo star Jack Huston as senator Robert Kennedy.

The Irishman is released on Netflix on November 27
