Domhnall Gleeson In About Time

maxresdefault (10)

Gleeson plays Tim, a man who uses his unusual time travel talents to win over the woman of his dreams in About Time. Heartfelt,?entertaining and emotional, this Irish talent is underrated as a leading rom com man. More of this please, Mr Gleeson.

Kerry Condon In Better Call Saul

Jonathan Banks with Kerry Condon

Tipperary Actress Kerry Condon plays the part of Stacey Ehrmantraut?in the hugely entertaining Better Call Saul.? Stacey was married to Matt, Mike Ehrmantraut’s son and has one daughter, Kayla. It’s not a patch on Breaking Bad but a decent follow-on series nonetheless.

landscape-1429114261-466556992

Victoria Smurfit is back in another episode of Once Upon A Time this week?as the woman you love to hate – Cruella DeVil. This is a super series, and Smurfit makes for a perfect casting choice, playing DeVil in a gleefully evil manner.?

Amy Huberman In The Stag

The Stag tells the story of a groom-to-be who agrees to hold his stag party in the great Irish outdoors, but the weekend takes a turn for the weird when the bride’s (Huberman) uncouth brother shows up. ?Huberman is hilariously brilliant?(as usual) in this enjoyable flick.

Sarah Bolger In The Tudors

original SB

There have been an endless stream of TV shows and films made about the Tudor era of history, and this series stands as one of the best. Visually stunning (though some artistic license has been used in terms of historical accuracy) with a strong cast (Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ finest role to date), Bolger plays the part of Princess Mary Tudor. She is the only surviving child of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, as well as the oldest of the King’s children. Notably, the young princess is the only female character apart from Catherine Brooke to appear in all four seasons, and she shines as the eloquently mysterious King’s daughter who refuses to bow to any makeshift queen or her father’s violent temperament.?
