AC­TRESS

Hot Press - - MY 2018 -

HERO OF 2018?

My friend - artist, singer and song­writer NA­DINE. No one has in­spired me more in truth, hu­mil­ity and courage this year.

VIL­LAIN OF 2018?

PLAS­TIC. We have got to make a con­scious ef­fort to avoid it. We can try to make more food­stuffs from scratch & avoid plas­tic pack­ag­ing by buy­ing our veggies loose. I no longer buy cloth­ing made of acrylic, polyester or other plas­tics and there’s loads more small de­ci­sions we can make to re­duce plas­tic usage.

BEST PER­SONAL MO­MENT?

Get­ting that call to say I’d got the part on Blood! I was cry­ing on the bus with my dog on my lap.

BEST MOVIE?

In­ter­mis­sion. I’m late to the party as I only saw it this year! I’m still quot­ing it and mak­ing my­self laugh. I’m film­ing the Sky drama Tem­ple at the mo­ment, another Mark O’Rowe cre­ation he is an in­cred­i­ble writer.

BEST RECORD?

One Kiss by Dua Lipa and Calvin Har­ris re­minds me of the Dublin Pride pa­rade last sum­mer. I was bop­ping along be­hind The Ge­orge’s float & ev­ery­one was jump­ing and singing along in their cos­tumes and glit­ter. It was an amaz­ing day - so much love and free­dom in the air!

BEST TV PRO­GRAMME?

The End of the F*ck­ing World. So bril­liant to see some­thing dif­fer­ent, and Alex Lawther is an out­stand­ing tal­ent.

BEST BOOK?

Sally Rooney’s Nor­mal Peo­ple.

I didn't know what to do with my­self when I’d fin­ished it, I just wanted it to go on for­ever.

BEST THING ABOUT THE YEAR?

The hottest Ir­ish sum­mer since 1973 and days pad­dling in the Glen­dalough lakes.

HOPE FOR 2019?

To work at some point! As an ac­tor you have to make your peace with un­em­ploy­ment & the na­ture of the in­dus­try you’ve cho­sen, but at the same time you’ve got to keep your hopes up.

WHAT TICK­LED YOUR FUNNYBONE?

Oh Lord, any­thing. I can't claim a cere­bral high-class wit but I’m a very gen­er­ous au­di­ence - I will heartily cackle at even the poor­est dad joke I’m afraid.
