Netflix dropped their latest original movie yesterday – Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Sagaa musical comedy based on the real-life annual European competition. Starring, co-written and produced by Will Ferrell, the film’s been splitting critics and viewers alike, with some loving it and some hating it. But, whatever side of the divide they fall on, everyone seems to be in agreement that Dan Stevens is having the time of his life in it.

The British actor stars very against type as Alexander Lemtov, the flamboyant Russian rock star who’s the main rival of eponymous Icelandic singing sibling duo Fire Saga, as played by Ferrell and Rachel McAdams. Stevens gives a larger-than-life performance in the role, and Netflix fans are loving it.

Here are just a few of the responses to Stevens’ OTT turn in the movie going around on social media:

He’s pretty much perfect.

“Dan Stevens was the best.”

“A bastard for the ages.”


He’s a show-stealer!
