FRAME, SET& MATCH As Jessie Buckley recieves rave reviews, we look at some other Irish actresses currently on top of their game. Evanna Lynch in James Mangold’s biopic Ford V. Ferrari, which stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon in the true story of the battle between Ford and Ferrari to win Le Mans in 1966. Ruth Negga Caitriona Balfe It’s remarkable how Dublin-born, Monaghanraised Catriona Balfe still manages to y under the radar. The former model has appeared in Now You See Me with Mark Ruffalo and Jesse Eisenberg, held her own opposite Hollywood royalty George Clooney and Julia Roberts in Money Monster, and is a Golden Globe nominee four times for her role as Claire Fraser in the timetravelling drama Outlander. This year, Balfe will appear Sharon Horgan Now that Catastrophe has ended and we’ll have to watch re-runs for the brilliant humour and irresistible wardrobe inspiration, actress and writer Sharon Horgan is bringing her endless talent to the third series of her HBO show Divorce, starring Sarah Jessica Parker. She’s also producing and appearing in This Way Up, a series about a young woman putting her life back together after a nervous breakdown. Anyone who had ever got a glimpse of Ruth Negga’s early work in Love Is The Drug, Mis ts or Love/Hate knew she was destined for greatness, and it surprised no-one when she was nominated for an Academy Award in 2016 for her portrayal of Mildred Loving in Jeff Nichols’ biographical drama Loving. Born in Termonfeckin, Evanna Lynch won one of Hollywood’s most coveted roles as Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter lms, transforming her life forever. But far from getting sucked into the Hollywood machine, this 27-year-old has carefully chosen projects that speak to her passions. She played the lead in My Name Is Emily, the coming of age story directed by Simon Fitzmaurice, who sadly passed away last year. Lynch’s charm and talent won over television audiences when she made it to the nal of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
