CATHY’S ROLE-CALL

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - REVIEW -

Busy, glam­orous, proac­tive, Caro­line in Nowhere Fast is be­mused by her ex­act­ing, trou­bled daugh­ter but de­ter­mined to do her best. An Ir­ish mother with at­ti­tude.

As Pa­tri­cia Hen­nessy in Red Rock, Cathy plays Ir­ish TV’S most steelyeyed ma­tri­arch; woe-be­tide any­one, garda or ri­val, who threat­ens her chil­dren.

Sis­ter Claire in Philom­ena is all vicious machi­na­tion hidden be­hind a calm voice and cups of tea. With oh-so-much re­gret, she ex­plains that all adop­tion records were de­stroyed in a fire. A lie, of course.

Lucy Reilly, the vet in Glen­roe, was the part that weaned Cathy back into act­ing.

A Lit­tle Chaos, di­rected by Alan Rick­man, with Kate Winslet, tells of the con­struc­tion of the Gar­dens of Ver­sailles. Cathy plays Louise.
