Irish actress Jessie Buckley has been working solidly for the last 11 years, but her new film, Wild Rose, is sure to send her career into the stratosphere.

 

Born in Kerry, Jessie Buckley first burst onto our TV screens in the Andrew Lloyd-Webber West End talent contest I’d Do Anything when she was 18. Today, she’s an acclaimed actress with a CV boasting award-winning films and television series, including Beast and BBC series War & Peace. This month sees her showcasing her vocal and acting talents in a starring role that is sure to not only move audiences, but have viewers sitting up and taking serious notice.

Meg Walker caught up with the Irish actress in Dublin to talk about Wild Rose, a film that sees Buckley play a single Glaswegian mum freshly released from prison who has a passion for country music and notable talent for singing, but two children who depend on her, and her dreams of going to Nashville to become a country singer are at war with her emotional ties to home.

 

Wild Rose, directed by Tom Harper and written by Nicole Taylor and starring Jessie Buckley, Julie Walters and Sophie Okonedo, hits Irish cinemas on April 12. Cert 15a.
