Dublin beauty Aoibhinn Garrihy enjoyed working with Jamie Dornan in ‘The Fall’ but rather than being impressed with his heartthrob status, it was his dedication to the job she admired.
The former Fair City actress landed a role in the hit Belfast based thriller and worked alongside the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ star.
Asked about working with the Northern Ireland hunk, the Trinity graduate told the Herald: “Jamie’s a great actor and such a hard worker. He filmed ‘Fifty Shades’ and ‘The Fall’ back to back so he has been working around the clock.”
The leggy blonde is loved-up in a long term relationship with other half John Burke.
Her head wasn’t to be turned by the gorgeous model-turned-actor who plays mysterious millionaire Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of the best-selling books.
Celebrating 40 years of the People of the Year Awards, the actress said she was thrilled to be involved once again.
“It’s one amazing night of the year when we have a chance to hail the unsung heroes and recognise the courage and bravery of people working in our communities,” she said.
The nomination process for this year’s awards is now open.
Extreme athlete Mark Pollock received a People of the Year Award in 2012, just six months after coming home from hospital after an accident which left him paralysed.
The sportsman has been blind since his early twenties but despite his disadvantages, he said he feels more fortunate than most and explained how he walked on robotic legs for the first time 18 months ago.
He is the subject of a documentary that is set for release this autumn.
Unbreakable, directed by Ross Whitacker has been four years in the making and it will show the Irishman’s quest for a cure for his paralysing spinal cord injuries.
