McNally has quite a deep record in show business. Fans of ABC's new hit show, Designated Survivor (2016) have seen him as General Harris Cochrane, opposing Kiefer Sutherland's character.
Others will remember him from the amazing The Man Who Knew Infinity (2015), with Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons. He played Major MacMahon, challenging Ramanujan to crack Partition mathematics.
I first noticed McNally myself, in Valkyrie (2009, Tom Cruise and Bill Nighy), a film about an attempt to topple Hitler. If you haven't seen Valkyrie, you need to.
Fans of Downton Abbey will recognize him as Mr. Bryant. He met his wife Phyllis Logan on the set of the show.
(I imagine Sri Lankan Downton Abbey fans did not ever think they would see a cast member at Lanka Comic Con.)
McNally was even in Doctor Who.
Here he is in the 1984 classic, The Twin Dilemma.
I'm not sure who he shoots here, but I'm pretty sure it was the right thing to do.
McNally returns to his role next summer, in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, coming out in May.
Lanka Comic Con will be at the SLECC, on August 26th and 27th. For information on sponsoring the event, please contact us, here.
